[Gossip] Speed Ruled As Cause Of Paul Walker's Death
Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.25.2014

TMZ reports that an official crash report has been filed for the accident that killed Paul Walker, and it reveals that it was speeding that killed the actor and not mechanical problems as some believed. The California Highway Patrol analyzed the speed of the car and said that Roger Rodas was driving between 80 and 93 MPH when he lost control on a curve and crashed.

The Associated Press quoted a source from the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department, who performed the mechanics analysis, and they said there was no mechanical failure. However, they did note that the tires were nine years old. Just after Walker died police said that the tires on the car were the original tires. The tires hardened and the car lost traction as a result.

Porsche sent a memo to its dealers nine years ago claiming the 2004 Porsche Carrera GT could be dangerous for an inexperienced driver. It said road surfaces needed to be smooth like a race track. The vehicle was said to be so sensitive that it "cannot drive over a Foster beer can that is lying on its side."

Police say there is no evidence a second car was involved in the collision. They added that an "after-market" exhaust system was installed to increase the horsepower of the engine. During the investigation, German Porsche mechanics were flown to Los Angeles to inspect the car's brakes, engine, body and one of the tires that wasn't destroyed.

Walker and Rodas died on November 30 from both the impact of the crash and the resulting fire.
