I think there was a fatal failure.

From my study of the location, pics and videos gathered on the Net, it is quite possible that the accident is due to tearing of the right rear tire:

We see the right rear tire shredded, a black mark on the road to the base of the lamppost characteristic drift of one wheel, the two left wheels are marked by the shock of rising pavement.

The violent shock on the lampost by the left side of the car who drift had generated a rotation ending in the tree with a second shock on the right side and fuel explosion.

The tire may have been cut by a catadioptric floor pad

No luck., no time to react, SHRACK ! PIM ! PAM ! BLANG !

RIP men…

Paul walkers death is going to remain in the news for a while longer and sadly no doubt sooner or later some one will start blaming the driver for the deaths. Lindsey lawers are wasting their time for one that lady in the game could be any one and two the makers of the game could just claim parody .
