Sup Travellers?! Paul Walker's death is old news now but the relative timeliness of this post does not make Paul Walker's death less untimely. His life and death is still relevant especially since there were so many loopholes in his death. You would think that the details surrounding the accident would have been more straightforward but there were a lot of unanswered questions. However, the latest coroner's report seemed to have answered a few of those questions.

The coroner reported that there was no alcohol or drugs in Roger or Paul's system at the time of impact. They were both sober. It was the speed of the car that killed them. The Porsche Carrera GT was speeding at over 100mph which equates to over 160kmph. The car was moving so fast that Roger Rodas lost control on a street in Santa Clarita. It spun 180 degrees, slammed into a tree and light post, and burst into flames. Paul Walker and Roger Rodas likely died instantly. So, it is likely that the two didn't suffer in the fire before their deaths.

Paul Walker's entire body was charred through the skin and was burned so badly that none of his organs were suitable for donation. He had multiple fractures throughout his body, including his jaw, collarbone, and left upper arm.  There were also various ribs and pelvic fractures. Roger Rodas suffered major head trauma with the top portion of his skull fractured and his brain exposed. They both were in a "pugilistic" stance when they died meaning that they both were bracing for impact.

This is the latest coroner's report and it did the job of clarifying some of the details surrounding the tragic deaths of Paul Walker and Roger Rodas. There are probably still some questions on the table but I think that we should let it rest. Time to focus less on how they died and more on how they lived. They will be missed. Once again I say.....RIP. My name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
