Paul Walker


Traumatic & Thermal Injuries

12/16/2013 5:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

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.

Does TMZ know what rest in peace means? How about we dig the guy up and take a picture of the corpse! Would tmz like that? We could douse him in lighter fluid and burn him the rest of the way and harvey could film it! Would you like that harvey? I bet you would!

150 MB?? Really TMZ? Thanks for nothing. Think your "tech" staff can figure out how to reduce a 3-page do***ent so it's not the size of a small movie?

He was assassinated by a car bomb. The little sapling that he allegedly hit didn't even get knocked over. There are no skid marks in the road like the y alleged, in any of the pictures. There was no room for them to be turning figure eights in the street with traffic in both directions steady and going the speed limit.

I heard that he knew about the vaccines that were being givien to the Filipino women that had a sterilization agent in them. I heard that some groups were also putting this agent in the relief supplies.

Here is another question. How did his socalled freinds from the car shop get to the scene before the fire department? How did they attempt a rescue from a burning car without even getting their shirts rumpled or dirty? These questions were brought up in a video by policestateradio on youtube.

They want people to believe that little light reflectors in the road made an experienced race car driver lose control of a high end car causing it to veer onto the curb and not even knock over the tree it was wrapped around and allegedly hit. This is really really stupid.

So time of accident is 1525 and time of death is 1538. The coroner estimates that both Roger and Paul were alive for 13 minutes after the accident?
