Paul Walker’s Cause Of Death Revealed

Paul Walker's death confirmed

Since the tragic death of Paul Walker many have speculated the initial cause of his death. Now it’s being reported that the L.A. County Coroner’s Office has completed their examination via dental records for both Walker, and his friend, Roger Rodas, who was driving the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT.

The L.A. County Coroner’s Office has released a statement in regards to the tragic crash that took the lives of actor Paul Walker, and his friend, Roger Rodas. Walker, 40, passed away due to a “combination of traumatic and thermal injuries.”

According to the statement, Walker did not die by the impact of the crash, and is believed to have been alive for a few seconds. It’s said that ultimately the fire caused by the impact was the cause of death. In the case of Roger Rodas, 38, the driver died on impact from severe injuries, and fire was not listed as a factor in his death.

It’s said that toxicology results will not be in for the two men until six to eight weeks, although the Medical Examiner has ruled that the deaths of Walker and his friend were accidental.

As for the event surrounding the accident, the two men were winding down after a charity event for Walker’s ROWW organization when they decided to take the red 2005 Porsche Carrera GT out for a test drive. According to Walker and Rodas’ mutual friend, Jim Torp, the two were not drag racing and were testing out a problem with the car that the two were trying to diagnose.

Shortly they left the garage, tragedy struck. According to Torp, smoke was visible from Always Evolving Performance Motors, which was the shop Rodas owned, and is around the corner from the crash site. Although many of their friends tried to get them out of the car, there was nothing that could be done. In addition, initial reports that said Walker’s 15-year-old daughter Meadow was on site at the time are false.

Paul Walker’s family has made an official statement on his public Facebook that has amassed to 12 million likes:

“Paul Walker’s family appreciates the outpouring of love and goodwill from his many fans and friends. They have asked, in lieu of flowers or other gifts, that donations please be made to Paul’s charity Reach Out Worldwide (ROWW). Donations can easily be made through their website at http://www.ROWW.org/.”

    Donations??? Plz he has gis stuff coverd I think this is a fake news report.

  2. Judy Hoban-Kern

    Well givin your age, I see where you would think that way, but, there are people out there who want to give flowers, cards, balloons, candles etc. so this I why they ask you to give in Paul's name to his Charity, also, you have no way of knowing if he had life insurance, a will, he was a young man, who may of not thought that far ahead, it is very small minded for you to assume that!!

  3. Alicia Fae Cathey

    Also, the donations aren't for him. They are to go to his charity, which helps other people. It's honorable for his family to share their tragedy and raise money for others.

    "According to Walker and Rodas’ mutual friend, Jim Torp, the two were not drag racing and were testing out a problem with the car that the two were trying to diagnose."

    Okay, so there might be a problem with the car to start with…

  5. Annalee Godinez Cornejo

    People need to read carefully. The parents asked that in LIUE of (instead of) flowers, candles, cards etc for their son that people donate to his charity in his memory so that he and they can continue to give and help others. As giving as their son was that's probably what he would of wanted. Much respect for Paul and his family. Thoughts and prayers…

    Take it your not a machanic or any kind of repair guy. Sometimes you have to test the system to be able to diagnose the problem and fix the issue.

    If you are in high school, you need to learn what sources are valid. This was reported by the Associated Press so it isn't fake. Secondly, if the family wishes donations to his charity rather than flowers and cards, that is their choice. Insurance or no insurance, the issue of the donations is separate. The insurance issue is the family's private business, not yours or anyone else's. Judy is right. It is small minded to assume that you know the family's personal business one way or another and not all actors make millions of dollars. I personally know several that are lucky to take home $2K a month because they act AND work a day job–and that's almost what I MAKE as an assistant mgr. This isn't Tom Cruise or Brad Pitt we're discussing here.I think it is remarkable that his family is using this tragedy to help others in need.

    Sean Edwards (professional race car driver) recently died the same way, passenger in a Porsche with a stuck throttle. Obviously Porsche doesnt want anyone to think it was a problem with the car itself because they dont want to be financially liable or get bad publicity.

  9. Mikael Pettersson

    Hardly any problem with the car..have you seen the pic on the car ?? even if it was something wrong with he steering , if they had the same speed as the plate stated they would have god this badly hurt = DEATH..so wonder how the fuck some police works.

    Tina Thomas and Marty.. you are both desinformation-agents.. he was killed..!!!

  15. Mike Aguilar

    Paul's out there somewhere on the fast track now, driving some of the hottest vehicles ever made or to be made.

    Light the fires and kick the tires for us, bro. Make the clouds post your pass times, my fellow racer.

  16. Yann Mercier

    From his living life on earth, Paul walker Has worked very strong for his charity so donations isnt bad you know, if he could talk right now i dont know what he could say, but im pretty sure donation could be done too if he could still talk. So, can you just give the world some peace please and pray for those who left with glory.

  17. Marty Robertson

    Nelson Raphhael lol im definitely not a disinformation agent. My entire point is that i HIGHLY doubt this crash was caused by "driver error" or intentional speeding. Most likely something in the car itself screwed up. Whether it was screwed up intentionally or due to a design/manufacturing flaw, i dont know.

  18. Kwaku Opoku Agyeman

    Even though Paul is dead ba his good work continuous to walk on RIP ma man

    Rip Paul Walker! My thoughts are with your family, you will never be forgotten! Rest In Paradise x

  27. Claudine Belnas Ybanez

    The donations aren't for him and his family. It's for his charity! He was holding a charity event for typhoon victims of my country. So for his family to ask of that is very kind and honorable. Still doing good even after death

    Imagining something and sharing it with the world is lying if you don't at first say it's fantasy. Shame on those truth-twisters, baggy lippers.

  31. Abraham Budhiredja

    Because he was a movie star in movies about expensive cars and hot girls, so all common sense naturally fly out the window..not that they were ever present in some people anyway…

    How could Allah bless a non-muslim? The blessing is just for those who are believe and worshipping Allah… my friend

  35. Nour Asma

    Mike Aguilar you are right… Allah bless all mankind in this world.. but not in the after world.. Allah does not bless the people who has insist to worship Him.. I can tell you, Muslim themselves are not guaranteed to be blessed in the after world unless they follow the right path and live in the proper ways as they asked to..

  36. Jonatan Ekeberg

    Chuck Hultquist Oj oj någon som är attentionwhore haha.. Ska inte du vara en bra förebild och allt som lärare och inte skriva nedlåtande saker om personer som du inte känner? Vart grundar sig hatet? Avundsjuka säkert.. Tönt haha..
