Paul Walker’s family and accident reconstruction experts now believe that his tragic Nov. 30 death was caused by the car hydroplaning after hitting roadbumps in the street, according to a new report.
Did reflective plastic markers cause the horrific car accident in which Paul Walker, 40, and Roger Rodas, 38, died? That’s what stunt experts are claiming, after visiting the crash site and saying that the car hit plastic roadbumps, called Botts’ dots, causing Roger to lose control of the Porsche, reports TMZ.
Paul Walker’s Family Believes Roadbumps Killed Him In Crash
After examining the crash site, stunt experts reportedly told Paul’s loved ones that when a speeding car hits a series of Botts’ dots, the vehicle will hydroplane, causing the driver to lose control.
This type of crash is similar to driving on ice, and the Porsche’s racing tires also have very little tread, according to the outlet. Paul and Roger’s car was going 90 miles per hour, according to People, but nothing official has been determined yet by law enforcement about what caused the fatal crash.
Paul Walker’s Private Family Funeral – ’Fast & Furious’ Crew Invited
Paul’s family made arrangements for his private funeral at Forest Lawn Memorial Park on Dec. 10, the New York Daily News reported. Paul’s family doesn’t want his daughter, Meadow Walker, to be surrounded by strangers when she says her final goodbye to her beloved father, sources connected to the Walkers tell TMZ.
But Paul’s Fast and the Furious friends have also been invited to the funeral because his family knows how close he was with them. Family sources tell the site that the funeral will be followed by a bigger memorial, which will also be by invitation only.
We hope that Paul’s daughter and the rest of his family will find some peace once they finally lay him to rest.
