Paul Walker

Paul Walker’s cause of death has been attributed to trauma and burn injuries sustained in the November 30 crash.

The LA County Coroner’s Office revealed the results of an autopsy on the actor, who was killed along with his friend Roger Rodas.

The pair were travelling together in a Porsche Carrera GT which veered off the road before slamming into a pole and exploding in flames in Santa Clarita, California.

“Paul died from the combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries sustained from the Nov. 30 car crash according to the coroner,” reports TMZ.

Meanwhile Roger died from multiple traumatic injuries suffered upon impact. Burning was not listed as a factor in his death.

The coroner says toxicology results for both men will be available in 6 to 8 weeks.

The Medical Examiner confirms both deaths have been ruled as an accident.

“Sources in the coroner’s office tell us both men were positively ID’d by using dental records,” added the website.

Paul was best known for playing Brian O’Conner, one of the title characters in the Fast & Furious film franchise.

The actor had already started work on the seventh instalment and filming had been scheduled to resume in Atlanta this week but has so far been cancelled and Universal Pictures has declined to say when it will restart, but have confirmed that production is suspended “for a period of time so we can assess all options available to move forward with the franchise.”

“We are just going to grieve now and deal with that all later,” the film’s producer Neal Moritz told TMZ earlier this week.
