Paul Walker's Autopsy Report Should Give Fans Some Peace of Mind
It has been a heartbreaking week for fans of Fast & Furious franchise star Paul Walker, who died alongside his financial manager Roger Rodas in a car accident earlier this week. Now, pieces of the Paul Walker autopsy report have been released, answering some questions that fans have about Walker's untimely death. The report stated that Rodas died of multiple traumatic injuries, while Paul Walker died of the combined effect of thermal and traumatic injuries.
According to the report, Roger Rodas was believed to have been driving the $450,000 Porsche Carrera GT. The car is notoriously difficult to handle and is powered by a 610 horsepower engine. Authorities are now saying that speed was a factor in the crash, and skid marks are being examined, though some believe that the skid marks left at the scene may be from a different vehicle.
Authorities have ruled out that Rodas and Walker could have been participating in a drag race, leading to the crash. In interviews about his role in Fast & Furious, a film which features fast cars and extreme stunts, Walker told reporters that he believed drag racing to be extremely dangerous.
As for the future of the seventh Fast & Furious film — which Walker had been filming prior to his death — it is unclear as to what will happen. The production is currently on hold.
