Report: Paul Walker & Roger Rodas’ Cause of Death Released

Posted Wednesday December 4, 2013 2:29 PM GMT

They perished in a tragic auto accident on Saturday (November 30) and Paul Walker and Roger Rodas’ cause of death has reportedly been determined.

The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office released information to TMZ that the “Varsity Blues” hunk was killed due to “the combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries.”

Such news may serve to further grieve Walker’s family and friends, given that he essentially burned to death as the initial impact didn’t kill him instantly.

Rodas, on the other hand, died instantly upon hitting the tree and pole, as thermal injuries were not included on his coroner’s report.
Additionally, the crash has been ruled as accidental.
