Paul Walker died when the speeding Porsche in which he was riding down a Santa Clarita street, hydroplaned on reflective plastic markers in the road, it's being purported Wednesday. Paul Walker's family and accident reconstruction experts now believe the speeding Porsche GT race car hit the road bumps, called Botts' Dots, causing driver Roger Rodas to hydroplane and lose control, according to TMZ on Dec. 11.
The other latest news surrounding Paul Walker's untimely death is that his body has been claimed by his family. Following an autopsy that was completed last week, his body has now been moved and readied for a private funeral.
Sources close to Paul's family claim stunt experts who have visited the crash site, have told them about what they believe is a solid theory - that the car hit the Botts' Dots and hydroplaned.
The experts estimate the speed of the Porsche at around 90 mph at the time of the crash. This new theory suggests the action star's business partner and friend Rodas hit the dots at that speed and lost control.
Walker and Rodas died when the car struck a pole, a tree and street sign and burst into flames on impact. Contributing to the accident were the racing tires said to be on the car. These special racing tires have very little tread.
A memo from Porsche sent out to dealers back in 2004 warned about control problems with the Carrera GT, saying, "You need to be aware of what type of road surface you are on (dips, pot holes, seam heights, etc.)".
Meanwhile, Paul Walker's funeral arrangements are now being planned at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in the Hollywood Hills, according to the Daily News.
The "Varsity Blues" actor's remains were moved to the famed cemetery on Monday as the autopsy was completed last week. That inquiry showed the 40-year-old died of traumatic and thermal injuries, a source from the Los Angeles County coroner's office revealed.
Walker's memorial service will be by invitation, open only to his close friends and family. It's being reported his "Fast & Furious" castmates will be included.
Law enforcement officials have said they have not yet determined the exact cause of the Nov. 30 double-fatality. However, they have confirmed speed was a factor in the crash.
