‘Fast and Furious’ star Paul Walker was travelling at over 100 miles per hour when his car, Porsche Carrera GT, went out of control, hitting a tress and bursting into flames.

Walker, 40, who was in the passenger, died alongside his friend, Roger Rodas, when their car crashed on November 30, 2013, in Santa Clarita, California, reported Ace Showbiz .

New report

A new report from the Los Angeles County Coroner released on January 3 noted that Roger was driving at an “unsafe speed of approximately 100 plus mph”, on the road — which has a designated limit of 45 miles per hour. The driver lost control of the car “for unknown reasons.”

‘Vehicle split in half’

After the car crashed into a tree and a lamp post, the vehicle was almost split in half. Much of the vehicle was also charred by the fire which followed.

The report also states neither Roger, 38, nor Paul had alcohol, cocaine, marijuana or other impairing drugs in their systems.

It has previously been found Paul died from a combination of traumatic and thermal injuries. — PTI
