“Fast and Furious” actor Paul Walker and his friend were traveling at more than 100 mph when the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT in which they were riding crashed, killing them both, according to a Los Angeles County coroner’s report released Friday.
The limited-production sports car was in the No. 1 lane on Hercules Street in Santa Clarita on Nov. 30 when Walker’s friend, Roger Rodas, lost control of the vehicle, officials said.
The autopsy report is the first time authorities have estimated speeds for the Porsche or detailed any of vehicle's movements.
The vehicle was eastbound when skid marks show it went out of control, spun around, hit the southern sidewalk and smashed the driver’s side of the car into a tree and light post, according to the coroner’s report.
“The force of those collisions caused the vehicle to spin 180 degrees ... the passenger side of the vehicle then struck a tree and the vehicle burst into flames,” the report stated.
