The world was shocked to hear about the untimely death of Paul Walker. The irony of an actor who reached fame playing someone who races car in the Fast and the Furious movie franchise passing away in a car crash is just too much for fans to bear. On November 30th, “Walker and his friend Roger Rodas were killed on Saturday afternoon when their Porsche Carrera GT slammed into a pole and was engulfed in flames. An investigation into what caused the fatal accident is ongoing, but officials are reportedly focused on speed as a possible factor,” reports Us Weekly.
“Investigators ‘have received eyewitness statements that the car involved was traveling alone at a high rate of speed,’ the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told the Associated Press in a statement on Dec. 2. ‘No eyewitness has contacted [the department] to say there was a second vehicle,’” the magazine continues.
Answers as far as the autopsy results have not been released, “and have been placed on security hold,” Lieutenant Fred Corral told the magazine. “No information is to be released on either decedent at this time.”
