Porsche is holding Paul Walker responsible for the car wreck that left him dead at 40 years old.

After his daughter filed a wrongful death lawsuit in September claiming her dad died because of defects with the car’s design, the company responded and said the car was not at fault.

“Mr. Walker’s death, and all other injuries or damages claimed, were the result of Mr. Walker’s own comparative fault,” the company wrote in the court documents.

The document said Walker “knowingly and voluntarily assumed all risk, perils and danger” when he got into the passenger seat of Roger Rodas’s car.

In her lawsuit, Meadow Walker argued that her dad’s seatbelt “snapped Walker’s torso back with thousands of pounds of force, thereby breaking his ribs and pelvis” and left him stranded in the passenger seat. (RELATED: Paul Walker’s Teen Daughter Sues Porsche — Blames Car Company For Dad’s Death)

Porsche said the car was “abused and altered after being entered in the stream of commerce” and that it was “misused and improperly maintained.”
