Walker's car 'may have done 100mph'

A coroner's report has said the Porsche carrying Fast & Furious star Paul Walker may have been going at 100mph or more before it crashed, killing both Walker and the driver.

The report released by the Los Angeles County coroner's office said that Roger Rodas, Walker's friend and financial adviser, was driving the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT at an unsafe speed, estimated by witnesses to be 100mph or more.

The report also said no alcohol or drugs were detected in the system of either man on the day of the fiery one-car crash.

It says the deaths on November 30 have been ruled accidental and were due to combined traumatic and thermal injuries.

Investigators found no mechanical problems with the Porsche or problems with the roadway.
