LOS ANGELES (AP) - The estate of Paul Walker has sued Porsche for negligence and wrongful death over the accident that killed the "Fast & Furious" star two years ago.

Walker's father, who is the executor of his son's estate, filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles on Wednesday. The lawsuit claims the Porsche Carrera GT that Walker was riding lacked safety features that could have prevented the actor's death when it crashed in Valencia, California, on Nov. 30, 2013.

The car burst into flames, killing Walker and his friend, Roger Rodas. Rodas' widow, who has a pending claim against Porsche in federal court, also filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the carmaker in state court on Wednesday.

It should be noted, Walker and his friend, Roger Rodas were reportedly going over 90 miles an hour when the special-edition Porsche crashed on a street posted for 45 mph speed limit, killing them both.

An after-hours message sent to Porsche seeking comment was not immediately returned.
