A newly released autopsy report aims to eliminate any lingering questions over the tragic deaths of actor Paul Walker and his financial manager and friend Roger Rodas.

According to the coroner’s report, Rodas died of multiple traumatic injuries and Walker of the “combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries”. The report also confirmed that Rodas was the driver and Walker was the passenger in the Porsche Carrera GT, which is powered by a 610 horsepower engine – an engine that has three times the horsepower of a normal vehicle. Authorities are now saying that speed was a factor in the crash – not hard to believe, given that the model of the car and the power of the engine.

The report also quiets rumors that the two were drag racing at the time of the accident. Toxicology reports of the two victims could take up to six to eight weeks.

When the first Fast and Furious film was released in 2001, Walker was quoted as saying: “”Nothing would be worse than a 120-mile-an-hour blowout, on a surface street, you know, with pedestrians lining up and down. You know, it’s just common sense, it’s just not worth the risk factor.”
