Paul Walker

Crash Investigation Ongoing

Report Blaming Speed Alone Is Bogus

A new report blaming Paul Walker's fatal car accident on excess speed alone is false -- multiple informed law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

The Associated Press is running a story that investigators have already concluded there was NO EVIDENCE Paul's Porsche had mechanical problems at the time of the crash.

According to the report, investigators believe Paul's friend Roger Rodas was simply driving way too fast ... and that's what led to the November 30 crash in Santa Clarita, which killed both Walker and Rodas. The report says the investigation also ruled out debris in the road as a possible cause for the car losing control.

But we've learned that's not true -- multiple law enforcement sources familiar with the investigation tell us, the investigation is ongoing and NO determinations have been made regarding the cause.

We broke the story ... the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. has summoned Porsche engineers from Germany to come here and examine what's left of the engine, brakes and tires in an effort to determine the cause of the accident.

Didn't they also just recover 3 black boxes from the wreckage recently? But yeah, I'm glad you broke the story first, TMZ! You always seem to "break" news first. And sometimes, when you get really bored, you rewrite the same story over again and head it with "BREAKING NEWS".

Celebrity Whackers tossed down a bunch of rocks and other rubble in the road for the hit. Ask Randy Quaid, he knows.

I can see ambulance/litigation chasers are circling now -- smells like litigation right around the corner. Probably from Paul Walker's estate suing Roger Rodas or Always Evolving (depending what the insurance is under) to get the premiums for death caused. Mmmm, probably just like the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT accident at the track. Story gold, scratch that, story platinum for celebrity outlets.

They were. In a very overpriced piece of junk car that is very difficult to steer, crashed into a tree, and burned up. What more do we need to know?

Unfortunate that one of the great world leaders of modern times died and all we read about is a guy that was in incredibly bad movies.
