(PCM) The autopsy report from the death of Paul Walker and his friend and financial adviser Roger Rodas has been completed and the cause of death is stated as being from the effects of “traumatic and thermal” injuries sustained from the impact of the car crash and fire. The coroner says that pair died instantly.
Both deaths were ruled as accidental and the coroner is still awaiting a toxicology report which could take a few more weeks to be completed. Walker and Rodas died after their special edition Porche collided with a light pole, two trees, and a 45-mph speed limit sign. A police investigator has claimed that the car was traveling at about 90 mph at the time of the collision, leading many to further speculate that it was possible that the two were involved in some kind of street race when the collision occurred.
A memorial has taken over the crash site and a massive tribute drive is planned in Walker’s honor. Universal has also announced plans to donate a portion of the proceeds from the home entertainment sales of “Fast & Furious 6″ to Walker’s charity Reach Out Worldwide. Walker and Rodas were on their way back from a fundraiser for the non-profit at that time the crash occurred.
While filming is still currently halted on the latest “Fast & Furious” film, the cast and crew have released an incredibly touching tribute video in memory of their co-star Paul Walker. The video, which has since gone viral, features footage from the “Fast & Furious” franchise set to the music of “I’m Coming Home” feat. vocals by Skylar Grey.
