Nearly four months after Paul Walker's death in a car accident, an official police investigation has determined that speed was to blame for the November 30th collision.
“Investigators determined the cause of the fatal solo-vehicle collision was unsafe speed for the roadway conditions,” Commander Mike Parker of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department explained.
He also reported that official toxicology tests found no traces of drugs or alcohol in either Walker or driver Roger Rodas' systems and that there were no pre-existing mechanical conditions on the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT the men were traveling in.

Traffic collision experts ultimately determined the car was going "between 80 and 93 miles per hour" when Rodas, a friend of Walker's, lost control of the vehicle.
According to the autopsy, the 40-year-old's body was charred beyond recognition after the car burst into flames following the crash.
The coroner determined the actor's cause of death to be a result of "combined effects of traumatic thermal injuries."
