Paul Walker’s autopsy report has been released … and it details the horrific final moments of the Fast & Furious actor.
Paul and his friend Rick Rodas died on November 30 in Santa Clarita, CA after Rodas lost control of their Porsche, which the report says was going more than 100 mph.
According to the report, Paul Walker’s body was in a ‘pugilistic stance’ – meaning it was in a defensive position as if he was preparing for an impact.
The report says Walker had multiple fractures throughout his body, including his jaw, collarbone, pelvis, ribs and left upper arm. His body was burned so badly that none of his organs were suitable for donation.
Rick Rodas sustained a fractured skull with his brain exposed.
Walker had a blood carbon monoxide level of 14%, Rodas – 10%. Normal level is 2%. There was no evidence of blood alcohol or drugs in both men.
The report notes that there was soot in Walker’s trachea – suggesting that he may have been alive and breathing after impact, though all other evidence point to the fact that he and Rodas died instantly.
The report also states that the car after impact spun 180 degrees, hit the tree and nearly tore in two before exploding in flames. It also says Rodas lost control of the car for ‘unknown reasons’.
The report concludes that Paul and his friend died from ‘combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries.’
