Paul Walker
died from "combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries"... this according to the death certificate obtained by TMZ.

The official cause of death is significant ... it means Walker wasn't killed from the impact alone. He also burned to death after the crash.

The L.A. County Coroner released Paul's cause of death earlier this month. The man who was driving the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, Roger Rodas, also died from "multiple traumatic injuries," but the Coroner did NOT list burns as a factor in his death.

Both death certificates reveal the men died quickly ... according to the doc, the time interval between the impact and their deaths was "rapid."

Both Walker and Rodas were killed in the November 30th crash in Santa Clarita, CA. The cause of the accident is still under investigation, but as we reported, officials suspect plastic bumps in the road may have caused Rodas to lose control.

I feel very sorry for this guy but what I do not understand is this. Paul was speeding (not a little bit) and he brought other people in danger. He could have hit another car and kill a child (even you child). Why is everybody feeling so sorry for this guy?

Give this guy and his family a break, he died end of story. Does TMZ somehow profit from these types of stories? That has to be the only reason they are continuing to report all the senseless details.

I guess Peter O'Toole 6 decade career doesn't add up to much! Maybe if Lawrence of Arabe had cars instead of horses.

Please stop with the details TMZ. This man had a family & friends who are already devastated by his loss. Let him rest on peace & allow his loved ones to grieve without your interference.

TMZ you should have blacked out all the addresses before you published I don't think it's right that you should tell the world where the family is, shame on you, I hope no crazy people out there start stalking the family or worse cos it will be your fault. Rogers is available with no addresses so why not Paul's???? Terrible TMZ

If you Google Earth 5160... earl drive CA, his place of final disposition as the record says, you will see there are tombstones on the front lawn of his house, and other decorations from Halloween. Very eerie coincidence.

I celebrate you and Roger.

Toast you and your legions of fans/friends/family.
