Speeding was the factor that led to loss of control.
It’s been well over a month since the tragic and horrific car crash that took the lives of actor Paul Walker and his friend Roger Rodas. The investigation is still ongoing, but more details about that sad day are beginning to come out. According to the Hollywood Reporter, whose source is the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office, the Porsche Carrera GT the pair were driving was traveling at more than 100 mph before Rodas lost control for still "unknown reasons."
Immediately after control was lost, the Porsche spun, hit a curb, collided with a tree and light post, continued to spin 180 degrees and then hit another tree before the fire began. The coroner also confirmed that neither Walker nor Rodas were under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash. In regards to the future of "Fast and Furious 7," Universal Studios has announced that Walker’s Brian O’Connor character will be “retired” from the series and not killed off. Walker and Vin Diesel will still headline the film, which will now premiere in April 2015 instead of its original July 2014 release date.
