The investigation into the death of “Fast & the Furious” star Paul Walker is ongoing, but the autopsies of the two killed in the crash have been completed.
CNN reports that Walker’s death was caused by “combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries,” according to the L.A. County coroner’s office.
The other person who perished in the accident was Walker’s friend and co-founder of Reach Out WorldWide, Roger Rodas, who was also in the Porsche Carrera GT at the time.
The autopsy confirms that Rodas was driving and died of “multiple traumatic injuries,” with toxicology results said to take six to eight weeks.
Earlier this week, “Us Weekly” reported that details on the late actor’s autopsy had been locked down.
Lieutenant Fred Corral told“Us” that the case has “been placed on security hold,” adding, “No information is to be released on either decedent at this time.”
Despite rumors to the contrary, the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department is not investigating the possibility that drag racing was a factor, telling the Associated Press that there is no evidence of a second vehicle.
At age 40, Walker is survived by his daughter Meadow. His family has reportedly asked for donations to be made to Reach Out WorldWide.
