The L.A. County Coroner’s Office have revealed Paul Walker’s cause of death. They report the actor died from a combination of traumatic and thermal injuries sustained in the car accident on November 30. He did not die from the crash alone, he burned to death after the Porsche GT he was riding in crashed into a tree and a pole and burst into flames.
The man who was driving the Porsche GT, Roger Rodas, died from multiple traumatic injuries suffered upon impact. Burning was not listed as a factor in his death.
The coroner says toxicology results for both men will be available in 6 to 8 weeks.
The Medical Examiner says both deaths have been ruled as an accident.
Sources in the coroner’s office tell us … both men were positively ID’d by using dental records.
Walker and Rodas were killed Saturday in Santa Clarita, CA when the Porsche GT they were in veered off the road, slammed into a pole and exploded in flames. The cause of that crash is still under investigation.
Paul was 40. Rodas was 38.
