Paul Walker’s coroner report has been released and his cause of death has been determined. The report indicated that the car was going more than 100 mph when it crashed into a light pole in November, according to MSN on Jan. 3. This was determined by the extent of the dead victim's injuries.

Roger Rodas, Walker’s good friend and the driver of the car, did not have any alcohol in his system. Walker was also free of alcohol the tests indicate. Neither of the men’s remains tested positive for cocaine, marijuana methamphetamine, MDMA or opiates, so drugs were not a factor in the crash.

Roger Rodas was found to have died on impact from the multiple traumatic injuries he received in the crash. Walker died from the combination of traumatic and thermal injuries.

The crash shocked the entertainment world back in November when Walker was at a charity event and decided to go for a ride with his friend Rodas. The crash happened not too far from the event, as people said they could hear it and see the flames after the explosion. The crash happened in Santa Clarita and Walker was there for his charity, Reach Out Worldwide.
