Paul Walker's Car Was Doing 100 MPH Before Fatal Crash
Coroner's report into the accident was released today...
The coroner’s report into Paul Walker’s death has finally been released and it reveals that the actor’s car was travelling at over 100 mph when it crashed.
The report also stated that drugs and alcohol were not a factor in the crash. Both Paul – and his friend Roger Rodas, who was driving the vehicle – tested negative for cocaine, marijuana, and other substances.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the coroner found that the red Porsche was travelling at “at an unsafe speed, approximately 100+ mph” when Rodas lost control “for unknown reasons.”
“The vehicle partially spun around and began traveling in the southeast direction,” the report said. “The vehicle then struck a curb and the driver’s side of the vehicle struck a tree and then a light post.”
“The force of those collisions caused the vehicle to spin 180 degrees and begin traveling in an easterly direction. The passenger’s side of the vehicle then struck another tree and burst into flames.”
The official cause of Paul’s death was traumatic and thermal injuries.
Paul was working on Fast & Furious 7 at the time of his death. The film has now been postponed until 2015.
