Authorities are continuing to investigate the circumstances around the car crash that took the lives of Paul Walker and his friend, Roger Rodas on November 30, but it could be 90 days before they have any answers to what caused the crash in the first place.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jeff Maag, a detective on the case says that the speed the car was going when it crashed is only speculation at this point, and more work needs to be done before they can determine anything for sure.
“We’re creating a factual diagram — mapping the scene,” Jeff says. “To the extent that we can, we need to rule out mechanical failure. But the car is a mess.”
As the investigation continues, Jeff wants to spend more time examining evidence like skid marks and lane widths. As far as examining the car itself, that’s up to the California Highway Patrol.
What Jeff does know for sure is that both Paul and Roger were wearing their seatbelts and were still in the car when it caught fire. He’s also confident in confirming that the car was going at least 45 miles an hour when it crashed.
Funeral services for Paul will be held this weekend and is open only to Paul’s family and friends — and the cast and crew of The Fast and the Furious.
