Editor’s note: The information that follows is graphic in nature.
When Paul Walker died in a car accident on November 30, we knew the details of the crash would not be pretty. The initial autopsy in early December revealed that the Fast & Furious franchise star died of the combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries, the latter from when the car caught on fire.
Now TMZ has obtained the full autopsy report, and it contains even more gruesome details about Paul’s final moments. The site reports that the actor’s entire body was burned so badly that his skin was charred through. He also had multiple fractures throughout his body.
The report also says that the driver of the vehicle, Roger Rodas, suffered major head trauma with the top part of his skull fractured and his brain exposed.
Of note, the autopsy states that no traces alcohol or drugs were found in either body. The 40-year-old actor and Rodas, 38, were taking Rodas’ $500,000 Porsche Carrera GT out for a test drive during a charity event for the foundation, Reach Out WorldWide, when the fatal accident occurred.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department had already confirmed that "speed was a factor” in the incident, and documents obtained by Fox News say Roger was driving more than 100 miles per hour when he crashed. So while speed did play a role in the tragedy, we’re glad to hear that drug and alcohol most certainly did not.Sources: TMZ, Fox News
