A new report by the L.A. County Sheriff's Department has concluded that the crash that killed actor Paul Walker last November 30 was due to speed and 9-year-old tires.
According to the report, the car was traveling 93 miles per hour in a 45 mile per hour zone when it crashed and killed both Walker, 40, and the car's driver, his friend Roger Rodas, 38. The report also determined that mechanical failure did not contribute to the crash, but two 9-year-old tires did. The law enforcement officials concluded that speed going into a tight curve was too much for Rodas, though he was a veteran race car driver.
The report also concluded that the car was not racing any other vehicles when it spun out of control, hitting the sidewalk then later a tree and light post. Both Rodas and Walker were killed almost instantly.
Back in January, an autopsy concluded that the 40-year-old Fast & Furious star died of "combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries" sustained in the crash. No traces of alcohol or drugs were detected in either of the deceased in toxicology tests.
Walker's mother Cheryl Walker recently filed for guardianship of his 15-year-old daughter Meadow, who currently is in the custody of her mother, Rebecca Soteros, though the two already live with Cheryl. Walker left Meadow a $25 million fortune.
