According to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office, when Paul Walker, star of the “Fast & Furious” franchise, and his friend and financial advisor Roger Rodas died on Nov. 30, the Porsche Carrera GT supercar Rodas was driving was going more than 100 miles per hour.
The accident occurred in Valencia after the pair decided to leave a charity event and go for a drive with the Porsche. Rodas lost control, hitting a light pole and tree before the vehicle burst into flames.
The report also laid out the injuries the two suffered.
Rodas died from many traumatic injuries that he sustained in the crash. He suffered skull fractures, pelvis fractures, broken ribs and broken jaw.
Walker died from a combination of injuries from the collision impact and fire, and suffered several broken ribs, broken pelvis, broken collarbone, broken jaw, broken elbow and a spinal fracture. The report indicates there was a minute amount of soot in Walker’s trachea, which means he was still alive for a small amount of time when the fire began.
However, the report does stipulate that both Rodas and Walker died seconds after the impact.
The coroner’s report also stated the bodies of the two were so badly burned they were unable to be visually identified. The police report stipulates the Porsche was practically split in half.
Drug and alcohol tests were conducted and both tested negative for any substances. The coroner’s office has decided the wreck that killed both men was an accident. However, the sheriff’s investigators at the Santa Clarita station are still investigating the accident but said speed did play a role.
