The final report has come in on the tragic car accident that saw Fast & Furious star Paul Walker and his friend Roger Rodas killed, and the word is that there was no mechanical failure – speeding was to blame.
In a sadly ironic touch, Walker and Rodas were apparently travelling between 81mph and 94mph when Rodas lost control of the car, ultimately crashing into a pole bearing a 45mph speed limit sign.
According to an anonymous source who has read the as-yet-unreleased report by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and the California Highway Patrol, the vehicle had no mechanical failure and all of the damage to the car was caused by the collision itself.
Walker’s accident took place on November 30 last year, in the middle of shooting the seventh film in the Fast & Furious franchise, which Walker was to star in. The crash was on Hercules Street, which is known to be a hotspot for stunt drivers and daredevils looking to practice tricks, along with street racers taking advantage of the good conditions and seclusion.
