Although there is no official word yet on what actually caused the dreadful crash that killed Paul Walker and his friend, Roger Rodas, sources close to Rodas' and his auto shop tell TMZ that they believe a steering fluid leak is the cause of what happened.
Their evidence: "There were no skid marks until right before the point of impact, and the skid marks were straight," says Newser.com.
These marks would indicate that Rodas lost control of the steering moments before the crash.
The fire that resulted then consumed the front of the vehicle very quickly, "indicating a fluid leak, since typically the rear (where the engine is) would burn more quickly," reports Newser.com.
"This is just the saddest thing. They were both in the prime of their lives," says San Francisco resident, Katie Adler.
The Porshe has been called "the most dangerous car on the road" by Newser.com
