That's the official cause of death...
Paul Walker's death certificate lists "Traumatic & Thermal Injuries" as the official cause of death. TMZ has obtained the certificate, which shows that Walker didn't die specifically from the impact but rather the aftermath.
Roger Rodas, who was driving the car, lists "multiple traumatic injuries" but not any sort of burns, meaning that he likely died on impact. According to the death certificates however they both died quickly.
The cause of the accident is still under investigation, but officials suspect plastic bumps in the road may have caused Rodas to lose control.
