Paul Walker: Autopsy Results Revealed
Fast & Furious star Paul Walker died from the "combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries," a coroner has revealed.
The LA coroner revealed the results of an autopsy on the actor, who was killed in a car crash along with a friend.
The driver of the Porsche Carrera GT, Roger Rodas, died of multiple traumatic injuries, the coroner said.
The coroner ruled that both deaths were accidents and said the injuries occurred when the car struck a fixed object.
It comes as video taken from a nearby building emerged, showing smoke from the initial crash and then later a large explosion that lights up the sky.
As a result of 40-year-old Walker's death, Universal Pictures has announced it is putting the filming of Fast & Furious 7 on hold indefinitely.
The studio said: "At this time we feel it is our responsibility to shut down production on Fast & Furious 7 for a period of time so we can assess all options available to move forward with the franchise."
More than half the movie has reportedly been made and it was slated for release on July 11, 2014.
Walker's publicist said he had been a passenger in the Porsche when it smashed into a lamp post and tree before bursting into flames.
The families of both men gave authorities dental records to provide formal identification of the bodies.
Accident investigators are trying to work out what happened in the moments leading up to Saturday's tragedy in Santa Clarita, California, about 30 miles northwest of Los Angeles.
But their enquiries have been hindered by the crowds of fans that have continued to flock to the crash site.
Investigators do not believe Mr Rodas and Walker had been racing another car, but said they had been speeding on a street with a 45mph limit, said Los Angeles County Sheriff's department.
While the neighbourhood where the tragedy happened is known to attract street racers, police said they had no indication of a second car being involved in the smash.
Police have warned fans not to perform stunts on the stretch of road where Walker, who starred in five of the six released Fast & Furious films, and Mr Rodas, 38, were killed.
One person was apparently seen drifting, an illegal technique in which the driver intentionally oversteers, causing the rear wheels to skid and making the car slide sideways.
Before the crash, the pair had been at a charity fundraiser event at Mr Rodas' car shop and later left, saying they were going on a brief drive - which turned out to be fatal.
