We have reported in detail about Paul Walker’s life-claiming crash and the turn of events that have followed. Last we reported, we wrote about L.A. County Coroner’s office initiating an investigation to verify the exact cause of Paul Walker’s death. The investigation has now reached its logical end the examination done via dental records for both Walker, and his friend, Roger states that Walker, 40, passed away due to a “combination of traumatic and thermal injuries.”
As per the report, Walker didn’t die due to the impact of the crash. He was alive for a few seconds after the car crashed. However, the fire caused by the impact led to his death. Driver Roger Rodas, 38, though, died of the crash’s impact.
Here is an explanation of the sad event by Jason Robinson, who was present at the spot-
This happened at a business park located in Rye Canyon near Santa Clarita, California.
During a car show that Paul was using to support his charity “Reach Out Worldwide”, Paul and Roger Rodas (The Owner) of Always Evolving Performance, where the event was held decided to take his red Porsche for a spin.
They left the AEP parking lot turning right onto Alta Vista Ave. They then turned right onto Constellation Rd, and then right again onto Kelly Johnson Pkwy where the driver began testing the limits of the Porsche.
Northbound Kelly Johnson Pkwy has a small s curve and a wide sweeping right turn that turns into Hercules St. This business park loop is infamous for drivers using it as a race track and the “Hercules Curve” is where they test their drifting skills.
Paul and Roger’s speed was far too fast into the curve and the car’s rear end kicked out toward the driver side. The driver then over corrected and the passenger side rear end kicked out to the passenger side.
Sliding sideways at high speed, the car hit a light pole directly on the passenger door where Paul was sitting and the car was split/wrapped around the pole.
The fire was a result of the initial impact with the pole, as the force of the impact tore open pressurized fuel lines and the fuel tank, throwing burning gasoline all over the vehicle. The car continued to burn as it came to a sliding stop on a small tree.
We wish Paul and Roger’s rest in peace in heaven.
