Paul Walker 'Leaves $25m Fortune To Daughter'

The teenage daughter of Fast & Furious star Paul Walker is set to inherit his $25m (15m) fortune.

Walker was killed in a car crash in Santa Clarita, California, last November.

The 40-year-old star has reportedly left his entire estate to 15-year-old Meadow.

His father, Paul Snr - who was named as the executor of the will - has filed it with a court, according to TMZ.

He also petitioned the court to appoint Walker's mother, Cheryl, as Meadow's guardian and the guardian of the child's fortune, as per the instructions of the will.

Meadow had started living with Walker shortly before he died and is thought to be currently living with her mother, Rebecca Soteros.

A court hearing is scheduled for later this month.

The actor was a passenger in a car travelling at more than 100mph at the time of his fatal crash, a coroner's report revealed.

Neither the actor nor his friend Roger Rodas - who was driving the Porsche Carrera GT and also died - had any alcohol or drugs in their systems, documents showed.

The driver lost control, hit a sidewalk, then a tree and a lamp post before bursting into flames, said the report.

Walker's body was found in a "pugilistic stance," as if he were bracing for impact, and died from "combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries".

The report listed a number of fractures - some the result of the intense heat. It said Rodas died from "multiple traumatic injuries".

Both men's deaths were ruled to be accidents.
