Paul Walker autopsy results: The cause of death for Paul Walker has been revealed by the L.A. County Coroner's Office. According to an updated report by TMZ Dec. 4, the "Fast and Furious" star died from "the combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries" after a violent car crash that happened last Saturday. His death was not from just the impact of the wreck. He was burned to death after the Porsche GT Carrera slammed into a tree and a pole and exploded.
Walker's friend, Roger Rodas, was driving the Porsche and was also killed in the crash. His autopsy results showed that he died from "multiple traumatic injuries suffered upon impact." Burning was not one of the causes documented in his death.
Walker died at the age of 40 and Rodas, 38.
Dental records were used to help identify Walker and Rodas. Their bodies were so badly burned from the explosion that the coroner needed dental records before proceeding with the autopsies.
The Medical Examiner ruled both deaths as being accidental.
Toxicology results from the autopsy of Paul Walker and Roger Rodas will be out in six to eight weeks.
