The Porsche that actor Paul Walker and friend Roger Rodas were in when they died Nov. 30 in a fiery car crash was traveling faster than 100 mph when Rodas lost control, according to a Los Angeles County Coroner's Office report issued Friday.
The accident happened in Valencia, when the two took out a Porsche Carrera GT supercar out for a drive following a charity event. Rodas was behind the wheel when the car spun out of control, hitting a light pole and a tree before bursting into flames on Hercules Street at Kelly Johnson Parkway in an industrial park. Both men died within seconds, according to a preliminary report issued by the coroner's office last month.
Rodas died of multiple traumatic injuries sustained in the collision and Walker died of a combination of traumatic injuries from the impact of the collision and injuries sustained in the subsequent fire.
Both bodies were so severely burned that they could not be identified visually. According to the police report, the rare supercar was “almost split it half.”
Both men tested negative for any alcohol or drugs. A final cause of the crash has not been determined, but investigators have said speed played a role.
The coroner's office has ruled the collision an accident.
