Report: Porsche Carrera GT that killed Paul Walker was traveling 100+ mph when it lost control

New report reveals that Porsche Carrera GT involved in the late November crash that killed Fast and Furious star Paul Walker and his friend Roger Rodas was traveling at speeds over 100mph before Rodas lost control of the car.

As a result the Porsche spun, hit a curb, a tree and a light post, then spun 180 degrees and hit another tree before going into flames.

The report also points out that both Rodas and Walker were not under the influence of any drugs or alcohol, so the main cause is as reported earlier high speed.

Walker’s and Rodas’s bodies were so badly burned that visual identification was impossible. Paul Walker had multiple fractures and other traumatic injuries, while Roger Rodas had multiple head injuries and a fractured skull that left his brain exposed.

Vin Diesel recently confirmed the Fast and Furious 7 will be out on April 2015 and rumour is that the modified script will see Walker’s character Brian O’Connor retire, rather than kill him off the franchise.
