Authorities say the car in which the actor was Fast and Furious, apparently, yes was speeding, but I was not competing. There is only one video of the moment of impact.
Los Angeles – Although the neighborhood where the star of “Fast & Furious” Paul Walker died in a car accident is known to attract racers, authorities do not believe the Porsche in which he and a friend were traveling ran a race against another car.
The accident investigators “received witness statements to the effect that the car involved was traveling at high speed only,” said Police Department Los Angeles County in a statement Monday.
“No witness has contacted the (department) to say he had a second vehicle.”
Comment on this news.
Walker and his friend and racing enthusiast Roger Rhodes died Saturday when the 2005 Porsche GT Rhodes hit a light pole and a tree and caught fire. The speed limit was 72 kph (45 mph).
They took what was supposed to be a short drive to get out of a charity event in Valencia, about 48 kilometers (30 miles) northwest of Los Angeles. Walker’s publicist said the action star was a passenger in the car.
The accident occurred on a street that curves about 1.6 kilometers (one mile) in the middle of commercial buildings. It is bordered by hills and relatively isolated from traffic, especially on weekends, when businesses are closed.
