Autopsy: Paul Walker died from impact, fire in crash

By The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — An autopsy shows Fast & Furious star Paul Walker was killed in a car crash by the combined effects of the impact and subsequent fire.

Walker, a passenger in the car driven by his friend and financial adviser Roger Rodas, died Saturday after the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT smashed into a light pole and tree then exploded in flames.

The Los Angeles County coroner's office released the autopsy results Wednesday. The report also says Rodas was killed by the impact.

Walker starred in all but one of the six Fast & Furious blockbuster films that glorified fast cars and dangerous driving.

Sheriff's investigators are still trying to determine exactly what caused Rodas to careen out of control. They have said speed was a factor.

I read else where that due to the skid marks, it was estimated they were doing 45 in a 45 mph marked area.

Hmm...having just done a quick search, I see 100mph, 45mph, and that the road drops to 15mph near where they crashed. Also that a tire might have fallen off. Bottom line? Probably best to wait for the official report.

Well if anyone would research they might find some information on the charity he started in 2010, which happened to be the charity having an event he was attending when he went for a ride. In the grand scheme of things a guy like this who has been to various disaster sites around the world to help efforts is 10 times the person most of us will ever be, but that is just my opinion.
