An autopsy report for the late Paul Walker has presented even more horrific details about the tragedy that occurred at a charity event on Nov. 30.
According to the coroner’s report, the Porsche Carrera GT was going at speeds above 100 miles per hour when Paul and his friend, Roger Rodas were killed. The official cause of the late 40-year-old’s death has been listed as “combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries” sustained from the crash—but an additional report illustrates just how horrific the accident was.
According to the autopsy, the Fast & Furious actor’s body was charred and burned so badly that Paul was no longer recognizable and his organs were not suitable for donation; additionally, he suffered multiple fractures throughout his body—including his jaw, collarbone and left arm.
Adding to the terror of the crash, Paul’s body was laying supine—face up—in the a defensive position, as though he were bracing for impact.
The report details there was soot found in Paul’s trachea—which would suggest he took a few breaths after impact, though it’s believed both men died instantaneously.
Additionally, Paul had 14 percent carbon monoxide saturation and Roger had 10 percent, compared to the normal level of 2 percent.
On Nov. 30, Paul met his untimely death following a fundraising event for Typhoon Haiyan in Valencia, California. He left behind a long-term girlfriend, Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell, 23 and a 15-yaer-old daughter, Meadow.
