It’s been such an emotional week for Paul Walker‘s family members and friends. After learning that his Dec. 4 autopsy report revealed that he died from traumatic and thermal injuries after his horrific Nov. 30 car crash, this touching video is a wonderful tribute to his memory that shows his most powerful moments in the Fast & Furious films.
Paul Walker Loving Memory Tribute Video Released By ‘Fast & Furious’ Team
In the video, a montage of Paul’s most poignant moments in the film’s franchise flash onscreen, including him smiling and laughing with his beloved co-stars, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson and Vin Diesel.
A clip of Vin one of the films also appears, showing that the cast was truly a family, on and off-screen. He gives a toast and says, “The most important thing in life will always be the people in this room, right here, right now. Salut, mi familia.”
The song in the tribute, “Coming Home,” sung by J. Cole and Skylar Grey, has beautiful and fitting lyrics:
I’m coming home
I’m coming home,
Tell the world I’m coming home
Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday
I know my kingdom awaits and they’ve forgiven my mistakes.
The last image of the video is of Paul leaning against a car, looking into the distance, with the words “In Loving Memory” shown above him.
While the cast and crew mourn the loss of Paul, production of Fast & Furious 7 has shut down, Universal Studios said in a statement Dec. 4.
Right now, all of us at Universal are dedicated to providing support to Paul’s immediate family and our extended Fast & Furious family of cast, crew and filmmakers. At this time we feel it is our responsibility to shut down production on Fast & Furious 7 for a period of time so we can assess all options available to move forward with the franchise.
Paul Walker’s Autopsy Results Revealed
The autopsy conducted by Los Angeles County Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner revealed that the driver of the car, Roger Rodas, 38, died of multiple traumatic injuries. Paul, 40, died of the “combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries,” according to the report.
“What thermal injuries basically means is that the bodies were SEVERELY burned. When we say traumatic injuries, these injuries are consistent with injuries that typically occur in traffic accidents,” Captain Kades with the LA County Coroner’s Department told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “They were SEVERELY burned.”
The injuries occurred when the automobile hit fixed objects — the trees and the light pole. Both deaths have been ruled an accident. Toxicology reports on both Paul and Roger will be available in six to eight weeks.
We’re so glad that such a lovely video was released to pay tribute to Paul’s memory. Our hearts continue to go out to everyone affected by Paul and Roger’s deaths.
