Paul Walker Autopsy Results, Fast & Furious star Paul Walker died from the “combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries,” a coroner has revealed.
The LA coroner revealed results of an autopsy on the actor, who was killed in a car crash along with a friend.
The driver of the Porsche Carrera GT, Roger Rodas, died of multiple traumatic injuries, the coroner said.
The coroner ruled that both deaths were accidents and said that the injuries occurred when the car struck a fixed object.
It comes as video from a nearby building emerged showing smoke from the initial crash and then later a large fireball explosion that lights up the sky.
Tributes to Paul Walker at the scene of the crash
The 40-year-old actor was a symbol of street-racing and car culture after his roles in the successful film franchise that began in 2001.
Production on the latest movie Fast & Furious 7, in which Walker was starring, is on hold following his death.
Shooting had been scheduled to resume this week in Atlanta, but was cancelled on Monday and Tuesday.
More than half the movie has reportedly been made and a spokesman for Universal Pictures declined to say when filming would resume.
Walker had been a passenger in the Porsche when it smashed into a lamp post and tree before bursting into flames, said Walker’s publicist.
The mangled wreckage of the Porsche after the smash
The families of both men have gave authorities dental records to provide formal identification of the bodies.
Accident investigators are trying to work out what happened in the moments leading up to Saturday’s tragedy in Santa Clarita, California, about 30 miles northwest of Los Angeles, California.
But their enquiries have been hindered by the crowds of fans that have continued to flock to the crash site.
Investigators do not believe Mr Rodas and Walker had been racing another car, but they were speeding on a street with a 45mph limit, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department.
While the neighbourhood where the tragedy happened is known to attract street racers, police said they had no indication of a second car being involved in the smash.
Police have warned fans not to perform stunts on the stretch of road where Walker, who starred in five of the six released Fast & Furious films, and Mr Rodas, 38, were killed.
One person was apparently seen drifting, an illegal technique in which the driver intentionally oversteers, causing the rear wheels to skid and making the car slide sideways.
Before the crash, the pair had been at a charity fundraiser event at Mr Rodas’ car shop and later left, saying they were going on a brief drive which turned out to be fatal.
