Preliminary Autopsy of Paul Walker Completed, Listing 'Accident'


Paul Walker


The early result of the autopsy released by Los Angeles County coroner suggested that Walker might still be alive after the crash.

The preliminary result of Paul Walker's autopsy has been released. Videos that captured the Saturday, November 30 car crash suggested that the actor and his friend Roger Rodas had 60 seconds before the car exploded. Turns out Walker might still be alive after the first impact.

Los Angeles County coroner's office listed Wednesday, December 4 that the "Fast and Furious" actor might have survived car crash at first but died from a combination of injuries of the impact and the resulting fire moments later. They wrote the cause of death as the "combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries." Meanwhile, it is unclear in the report whether Rodas, who was driving the Porsche Carerra GT, was still alive when the car went up in flame. The coroner said he suffered "multiple traumatic injuries."

The bodies were horribly injured that coroner used dental records to identify Walker and Rodas. Two different doctors performed the separate autopsies, resulting in the difference in the description of their injuries. However, LA County Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter told CNN that it didn't mean their deaths were significantly different.

The deaths were officially ruled accident. Full autopsy report is expected to be released in several weeks including toxicology reports to determine whether alcohol or drugs were involved. It is yet unknown as well what caused the wreck although officials have said speed is a factor.
