The autopsy completed on actor Paul Walker done by the LA County Coroners office detailed what many of us pretty much figured from the pictures and VIDEO tape following the horrific and tragic car crash. Paul Walker may have survived the initial crash but died moments later due to a combination of injuries from the impact and the resulting fire.
“Fast & Furious” star Paul Walker may have initially survived a horrific car crash but died moments later due to a combination of injuries from the impact and the resulting fire, according to a coroner’s report.
The one-page preliminary report released by the Los Angeles County coroner’s office Wednesday listed the cause of the actor’s death as the “combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries.”
An autopsy concluded that Roger Rodas, who was driving the red Porsche Carerra GT, suffered “multiple traumatic injuries,” but it was not clear in the report if he was still alive when the car burst into flames soon after the wreck.
It is not known how long each man lived after the crash as the fire began, Winter said. That information may be included when full autopsy reports are released in several weeks, he said.
