What was Paul Walker’s cause of death?

Paul tragically died on November 30, 2013, in Valencia, Santa Clarita, California, United States.

How old was Paul Walker when he died? At the time of his death, he was 40 years old. Roger Rodas, the man he died with was 38 years old and a native of El Salvador.

The duo died in an automobile accident.

Walker and his friend, Roger Rodas were returning from an event for Walker’s charity, Reach Out Worldwide, for victims of Typhoon Haiyan.

Rodas was driving his Porsche Carrera GT when he crashed into a concrete lamppost and a tree at high speed before the car caught fire, killing them both.

An investigation into the accident concluded the vehicle was traveling at 94mph in a 45mph zone.

A judge dismissed claims that Porsche was responsible for the deaths in 2016.

The judge stated that Rodas’ fatal injuries occurred when he and Paul collided during the crash, which a crash cage wouldn’t have prevented.

Judge Gutierrez added that “undisputed evidence” showed Rodas died from a fire caused by racing fuel.

Later, the actor’s cause of death was revealed as a combined effect of trauma and burns, leaving his family and film co-stars bereft.

A post-mortem revealed he had no drugs or alcohol in his system when he died.

He had broken bones throughout his body, including his jaw, arm, ribs and pelvis.

Where is Paul Walker buried? The famed late actor was buried at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills, California, U.S.
