Paul Walker was officially killed by the combined effect of “traumatic injuries” sustained on impact and “thermal injuries” from fire during his fatal car crash over the weekend.

The Los Angeles County Coroner announced the late actor’s autopsy results on Wednesday.

Walker died as the passenger in a car driven by friend Roger Rodas, who crashed the Porsche into a light pole in Los Angeles on Saturday.

Rodas died on impact and the fire did not contribute to his death, according to the coroner’s report.

Both men were positively identified by dental records.

Their deaths have been ruled an accident.

A toxicology report is expected in six to eight weeks.

Investigators are still trying to piece together what caused the high-speed single vehicle accident.
