Drag racing not a factor in Paul Walker death

Investigators of the car crash that killed Paul Walker and Roger Rodas have ruled out the possibility that the pair were drag racing when Rodas' 2005 Porsche Carrera GT went out of control and hit a tree and light pole then burst into flames. According to the Chicago Tribune on December 3, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is saying that eyewitness reports are confirming that only one vehicle was seen at the time of the accident.

Over the weekend, a tip came in concerning a second vehicle that was allegedly seen drag racing with the red Porsche but it turns out that tip was unsubstantiated. Eyewitnesses at the scene of the crash saw only one and that was the Porsche holding Walker and Rodas.

Autopsy reports for Walker and Rodas are expected to be released Tuesday. The Los Angeles County Coroner's Office has said they are waiting on dental records. The car fire was so intense that the bodies could not be identified without them.

Paul Walker was part of an ensemble cast in five of the six "Fast and Furious" movies already released. He was currently filming the seventh installation, which will still be released but is delayed due to Walker's death. He and Rodas were both part of the Always Evolving racing team.
