Paul Walker: May Have Tried Desperate Escape From Burning Car

The news on Paul Walker’s death just keeps getting more devastating. Paul may have tried to escape the Porsche he was trapped in before it exploded, since video footage of the crash detects an image in the car moving after the accident, according to TMZ. How terrible. Paul Walker‘s last moments after his car crashed in Santa Clarita, Calif. on Nov. 30 were captured by security cameras across the street and a passerby. The car didn’t show any smoke rising from it immediately after the accident in the security video, suggesting that Paul was burned alive. However, the video taken by a passerby may now reveal that Paul tried to escape the burning vehicle seconds before it burst into flames.

Investigators believe that Roger didn’t move when the car crashed, but were not certain about Paul. Law enforcement is looking closer at the video now, according to the outlet.

Paul Walker’s Autopsy Results Revealed

The autopsy conducted by Los Angeles County Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner revealed that Roger, the driver of the car, 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 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.

Our hearts continue to go out to everyone affected by Paul and Roger’s deaths.
