Paul Walker crash caused by ‘unsafe speed,’ investigators say
30. “Investigators determined the cause of the fatal solo-vehicle collision was unsafe speed for the roadway conditions,” sheriff’s Cmdr. Mike Parker said. Also PAUL WALKER: 1973-2013 The report came the same day that Universal Studios previewed the upcoming film “Fast & Furious 7” at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, which gave the first glimpse of Walker’s final performance in the popular franchise. When Walker died, he still had a substantial portion of the film to shoot, and the studio pushed the film’s release from this summer to April 2015. Some reports have indicated that Walker’s character will be retired in the upcoming film, and that CGI and body doubles will be used in certain scenes. In the sheriff’s department report, officials found no evidence of any car system failures, but at least two of the tires were more than nine years old. Porsche recommends that tires be replaced after four years. As a result, “the driveability and handling characteristics” of the car “may have been compromised,” California Highway Patrol investigators wrote.
