Anyone who saw the pictures of Paul Walker’s deadly crash can see that the speed of the car was to blame for this tragedy.
The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department made a statement on Saturday confirming that, and said:
“When they arrived, deputies found the vehicle engulfed in flames. The Los Angeles County Fire Department responded, extinguished the fire and subsequently located two victims inside the vehicle. The victims were pronounced dead at the scene… Speed was a factor in the solo vehicle collision. The car was a red 2005 Porsche Carrera GT.”
SO SAD! And totally avoidable!
Because the car exploded, the authorities are having a hard time identifying Walker’s and the driver Roger Rodas’ bodies and are reportedly using dental records. The L.A. Coroner is waiting for that confirmation.
Everything about this just gets sadder and sadder.
It’s still so hard to process all of this. Such a sudden loss of a beloved actor by everyone who met him.
Paul, you are truly missed!
