Paul Walker died of the combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries suffered in a car crash, the autopsy report says.
Walker, who was in the car with friend Roger Rodas, died from multiple traumatic injuries suffered upon impact. According to the coroner, who conducted the autopsy of both the men, the duo's toxicology results will be available in six to eight weeks.
The medical examiner says both deaths have been ruled as an accident and as per the sources in the coroner's office, both men were positively identified by using dental records. The accident occurred Nov 30 in Santa Clarita, California.
Walker was in Santa Clarita for a car show to support the Philippines typhoon relief effort, and went for a ride with a friend in a new Porsche GT. The accident happened during that test spin. "He was a passenger in a friend's car, in which both lost their lives," Walker's representative said in a statement. The representative added that Walker was "attending a charity event for his organisation Reach Out Worldwide."
"All of us at Universal are heartbroken. Paul was truly one of the most beloved and respected members of our studio family for 14 years, and this loss is devastating to us, to everyone involved with the 'Fast and Furious' films, and to countless fans. We send our deepest and most sincere condolences to Paul's family," Universal Studios said in a statement.
Walker was filming the next sequel of the Fast and Furious before the Thanksgiving holiday weekend crash. The film was scheduled for release July 11, 2014. The actor, who also has films like Into the Blue and Takers to his credit, is survived by daughter Meadow.
