Investigators are saying that the tragic accident in which Paul Walker has lost his life happened at 150 km/h (93 mph), which was the travelling speed of the very impressive Porsche Carrera GT.
Recent autopsy reports have indicated that the Porsche Carrera GT, in which Paul Walker has lost his life, were saying that the German supercar was travelling at speeds just over 160 km/h (100 mph), but it seems that the vehicle was doing “just” 150 km/h (93 mph) at the time of impact. The announcement has been made by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and it seems that there weren’t any technical problems with the car.
However, the tires used on the Porsche Carrera GT were nine years old and this is said to have been a contributing factor. The accident occurred in a zone where speed was limited to 72 km/h (45 mph). Paul Walker has died on November 30, in the afternoon, while he was with Roger Rodas, friend and former professional racer, in Rodas’ red 2005 Porsche Carrera GT. The supercar hit a concrete pole and two trees on Hercules Street, in Valencia, Santa Clarita, California, and it has been caught on camera by a security camera. Authorities said that Rodas was driving the car and Walker was a passenger. The two of them have been declared dead at the scene after the Carrera GT had caught fire.
