Paul Walker's Car Was Traveling Over 100 MPH Before Fatal Crash


Posted on by  

On November 30, 2013, Paul Walker was involved in a horrific crash that cost him his life. Back then it was not known how Roger Rodas — the driver at the time of the accident and former race car driver — lost the control of the Porsche Carrera GT . It was pretty clear that speed was the main factor, but there was no official cause provided by the police.

Now, according to the final report from the L.A. County Coroner’s Office, it looks like the Carrera GT was driving at more than 100 mph before the moment of impact. Police officials said that the car was headed east on Hercules Street "at an unsafe speed, approximately 100+ mph," lost control for some "unknown reasons," and hit both a tree and a light post. The car then spun around another 180 degrees, hit another tree and burst into flames.

The same report stated that Rodas was not under the influence of any drugs or alcohol.

After his death, Universal Studios announced that the release date for the new series in the Fast and Furious franchise was moved from July 2014 to April 10, 2015.

This final piece is hopefully the final piece of news regarding this tragedy and serves as a reminder that no matter how good of a driver you are and how awesome the car is, always save the crazy driving for the race track...
