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.

How much longer is TMZ going to report on this tragedy? They're behaving like he's the most important person in the world that has ever died! Enough is enough, move on, it's like beating a dead horse over and over and over again. I never even knew who this guy was in the first place, never watched the kind of films he made, most people honestly didn't either!

Just because he had thermal injuries does not mean he was conscious when the car burned. Due to the traumatic injuries that happened first according to all reports, he was likely unconscious or brain dead and would never have experienced burning. Reports said that he died seconds after the crash.
