‘Unsafe speed’ caused car crash that killed Paul Walker

World Premiere Of Fast & Furious 6

Investigators have ruled that the accident in which Paul Walker and his friend Roger Rodas lost their lives was caused by high speed, not mechanical failure.

Rodas was driving the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT between 81 and 94 miles-per-hour in a 45 miles-per-hour zone when he lost control of the car and crashed in Santa Clarita, California on November 30.

“Investigators determined the cause of the fatal solo-vehicle collision was unsafe speed for the roadway conditions,” Los Angeles County Sheriff Commander Mike Parker said in a statement.

A specialist with the Highway Patrol wrote in his report: “The vehicle had no mechanical failure and the damage that occurred to the vehicle was from the collision.”

Another police official told the press that there was no other car involved in the crash, dismissing stories suggesting Walker and Rodas were racing another car at the time of the crash.

Both men were wearing seat belts. They had no drugs or alcohol in their blood.

    “If one day the speed kills me, don’t cry. Because I was SMILING”- Paul Walker (1973-2013). These words turned to be prophesying. So, we are not crying as he was smiling, though such a great loss. Sometimes the words determine our life. I believe in the law of attraction and that your obsessions and sick passions can kill you. This is what has happened to this amazing and definitely very talented Hollywood actor, besides a sex symbol for many. We will miss, you Paul Walker, you were one of the best. Condolences to his friends and family, a great loss and grief to come through!

    Hmmm, I think it is all bull***t, as both of the people who sit in that damn car were professional racers, so are you kidding me when saying that they were killed by the speed of 90 miles per hour?! Of course those are police’s reports, but the reality even from a rational point of view is different and I am perfectly sure that people should know the real story of Paul Walker’s death, as he has a daughter who deserves to know the truth, as well as a lot of friends and fans for whom his death became a real tragedy, even for me it was an unexpected tragedy.

    Awe my God, even though so much time have passed it still hurts me seeing his picture, I cannot understand how all of those things have happened, and how did it happened that we lost him, and he died, he was not simply a great person, but also a man from the big letter “M”, as he was kind, and always very friendly with his fans. He led a quite simple lifestyle, but his passion towards the racing cars has killed him. And I am very sorry that his daughter stayed without her dad. I will miss Paul Walker in all the other parts of “Fast and Furious”, as he as well as Vin Diesel was the hearts of that movie, and it will never be the same with the absence of at least one from those two. I know they became true friends while performing in it, so I know that for Vin it became a shock. But as it is pointed in the good old saying “Good people are needed on in heaven as well”, so here is an outstanding example of it.

    Rest in peace Paul Walker that is all that is coming into my head as soon as I see his picture, it is very sad how it all happened. It is one more prove of the fact that money cannot solve every problem in the world, and sometimes you just need to be careful with everything you do in order to avoid this kind of problems. He truly was a good person, usually I never make mistakes when judging about people, so I am sure I do not make mistakes while realizing in my head what kind of person he is, I mean was. That was just fate, and something he wasn’t able to escape, I am sure that with the skills he had the speed of 90 miles was same as walking with bare feet, so that makes me just one more time perfectly sure of the fact that it was his fate, to die from the thing he loved the most- speed.
