Walker, Paul: Speeding Cost his Life

The Porsche Carrera GT that was involved in a crash that killed Paul Walker was exceeding speeds of more than 100 MPH before the driver lost control and crashed into a tree, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s report released Friday.

The report also states that there were no drugs or alcohol in Walker’s system when he died and that the cause of death was traumatic and thermal injuries.

Walker was a passenger in the vehicle when the driver lost control of the car and crashed it into a tree on Nov. 30. The report says that “the driver lost control of his vehicle, and the vehicle partially spun around and began traveling in the southeast direction. 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.”

Walker was best known for starring in “Fast and Furious” franchise and the seventh installment was still in production. Universal has stopped production and rescheduled the film for April 10, 2015
