On Nov 30th Paul Walker was killed in a fiery car accident. While test driving a 2005 Porsche right outside L.A, Walkers friend lost control and smashed the car into a tree. It was confirmed after the actors autopsy that Walker died from thermal as well as traumatic injuries.
Antonio Holmes told reporters that Walker and Radas had just left a charity event to take a test ride in 2005 Porsche Carrera GT. Holmes also told reporters that the accident could be heard from the location of the charity. Holmes stated that after someone identified the sound they all took fire extinguishers to the scene to try and put out the fire. Reports say that Roger Rodas and Walker were traveling at the excessive speed of over 90mph. This speed coupled with the plastic markers in the road may have been what caused the car to hydroplane. On Sunday, Dana Bee, L.A Coroner Investigator told CNN that identifying the remains could take up to 48 hours.
