Paul Walker’s Death: Porsche Was Speeding 100 + MPH
So sad. Sources close to RadarOnline.com say that the Porsche Paul was riding in was doing 100+ MPH before it wrapped around a pole in Santa Clarita, Calif., while the posted speed limit at Rye Canyon Loop and Kelly Johnson Parkway is only 45 MPH. The investigators believe that speeding was involved because the Porsche was split in half, and the pole in question was hit so hard that it fell over.
“Though the investigation is in its early stages, investigators from the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department believe the Porsche was going over 100 mph,” a source close to the investigation said. “Both men wore seat belts, [but] if the Porsche wouldn’t have hit the pole, Paul and Roger would likely still be alive today.”
