Paul Walker Crash Caused By Unsafe Driving, Not Mechanical Problems

The Associated Press reported this afternoon that the crash that killed actor Paul Walker in November was caused by speeds in excess of 90 mph, and not a mechanical problem with the Porsche Carrera GT he was riding in.


Walker was killed Nov. 30 along with driver Roger Rodas in California when the Porsche hit a telephone pole. The AP cites someone who has reviewed the investigation and says Rodas was going between 81 mph and 94 mph when his 2005 Porsche Carrera GT began to drift as it lost control after coming out of a curve."

So far neither the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department or California Highway Patrol have commented on this report.
