“Fast & Furious” star Paul Walker, 40 and his 38-year-old friend Roger Rodas’ autopsy results are in, according to a Jan. 3 NBC News report. The duo did not have any alcohol or drugs in their systems at the time of the car crash, and their deaths on Nov. 30, but the Los Angeles County coroner’s report released on Friday indicates that the Porsche they were driving traveled at an “unsafe speed,” of “approximately 100+ mph” prior to the crash, and “almost split in half” upon impact.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the coroner’s report notes that Roger Rodas, lost control of the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT “for unknown reasons” as it sped east on Hercules Street.

Walker died of “severe blunt head, neck and chest trauma,” and sustained a broken arm, wrist, jaw and ribs, according to the coroner's report. The fire burned his body beyond recognition. Rodas sustained similar injuries, plus a fractured skull.

Walker and Rodas had reportedly taken the Porsche for a short ride, during one of Walker’s charity events.
