According to an article published by CNN on Dec 2, authorities have ruled out the possibility of a second car being involved in the crash that killed the "Fast & Furious" actor Paul Walker, 40, around 3:30pm on Saturday.

CNN reports that police had received tips that Walker and Roger Rodas, who was the driver of the 2005 Porsche Carrera, were possibly involved in a drag race when their car slammed into a light pole killing both men. However, officials now say they do not believe there was a second car involved.

A Los Angeles County Sheriff's spokesman announced Monday that investigators are now focusing their attention on speed as the main factor in the crash. Police say that there was a 45 mph speed limit sign posted on the light pole that Walker and Rodas hit.

Police say there has been no official identification made on the occupants of the car because the bodies were burned beyond recognition. Authorities are waiting for dental x-rays to arrive to make the official identifications. Autopsies are scheduled for Tuesday.

Paul Walker's family has requested that friends and fan make donations to Walker's charity instead of sending flowers. If you would like to make a donation in memory of Walker you can visit the Reach Out Worldwide website.
