As the days go on after the tragic death of actor Paul Walker and his friend Roger Rodas in a fiery car crash; there is new information coming forth all the time. On Monday, Dec. 2, 2013, TMZ reported that there is new evidence pointing to a possible malfunction in the Porsche that may have ultimately led to the crash that cost both of them their lives.

There has been a lot of speculation as to whether or not the friends were racing in the car or driving recklessly, but new information may prove otherwise.

Reports state that a possible steering fluid leak may have led to the crash that killed Paul Walker. Sources tied to Always Evolving, the auto shop where the Porsche was held and maintained, say they saw evidence of a fluid burst and fluid trail before the skid marks at the scene of the accident.

It has been pointed out that there is a "noticeable absence of skid marks until just before the point of impact." With the skid marks in a straight line, it shows that Rodas (the driver) did not lose control of the car and actually couldn't steer it at all.

Another strange thing is that the fire spread very fast to the front of the vehicle when they should have been in the back by the engine. This also points to the possibility of a fluid leak.

It is still true that Roger Rodas and Paul Walker may have been speeding as detailed by police, but friends and experts say there was no way a "world class driver" such as Rodas lost control.
