The special edition 2005 Porsche Carrera GT that Fast & Furious star Paul Walker was riding in was traveling at over 100 mph when it swerved out of control, crashed and burst into flames, according to a new report.

The report, issued Friday by the Los Angeles County Coroner just over a month after the Nov. 30 wreck claimed Walker, 40, and the driver, Roger Rodas, 38, confirms earlier, unofficial reports that speed was the main cause of the wreck on public streets in Santa Clarita, Calif.

It also provides a detailed description of the crash. The report says the bodies were so badly burned that Rodas had to be identified through dental records, while Walker "cannot be positively identified visually."

Paul Walker Car Crash: Officials Find No Mechanical Issues

Originally posted 12/18/2013 06:30PM

Investigators have found no evidence that the Porsche carrying actor Paul Walker had mechanical problems before it crashed, killing the Fast & Furious star.

The investigation also has ruled out debris or other roadway conditions as causing the car in which Walker was a passenger to slam into a light pole and tree.

The car, a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, is notoriously hard to handle.

"We're looking at speed and speed alone," a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation told The Associated Press. The official was not authorized to speak publicly about the ongoing investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The Rock Raked It In in 2013 – He's This Year's Top-Earning Star

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Named 2013's Top-Earning Movie Star

Originally posted 12/17/2013 04:15PM

Robert Downey Jr. is no longer the highest-earning actor in Hollywood. That honor now belongs to a different man of steel – Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

Topping Forbes's new list of the top-grossing actors of 2013, Johnson's star vehicles – which included the action flicks Snitch, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Pain & Gain and Fast & Furious 6 – took in a combined $1.3 billion in global ticket sales and cemented his place as this year's most bankable movie star.

Downey Jr. – who topped last year's list of highest-grossing movie stars thanks to the hugely successful The Avengers – came in a close second to Johnson this year, despite starring in Iron Man 3, the top-earning movie of 2013, which raked in $1.2 billion.
