Paul Walker Death Crash Was Caused By Speed - Police
Unsafe speed rather than mechanical failure blamed for accident that claimed life of movie star and friend...
Rodas was driving the pair in his 2005 Porsche Carrera GT in Los Angeles last November when the vehicle collided with trees and a pole. Both men died at the scene.
A report from the LA County Sheriff's Department has now ruled out mechanical failure as a factor in the accident.
"Investigators determined the cause of the fatal solo-vehicle collision was unsafe speed for the roadway conditions," Commander Mike Parker explained.
Sky News reports that the car was travelling at 80mph to 93mph in a 40mph zone.
The report reads: "The vehicle had no mechanical failure and the damage that occurred to the vehicle was from the collision."
Police have dismissed reports that the pair were involved in a race with another vehicle.
