Paul Walker's Cause of Death: Trauma & Burn Injuries

Paul Walker's Cause of Death: Trauma & Burn Injuries

Paul Walker‘s autopsy has been completed and his cause of death has been revealed to be both trauma and thermal injuries, according to TMZ.

The 40-year-old actor was involved in a deadly car accident this past weekend on Saturday (November 30) while he and his friend Roger Rodas crashed into a pole at a charity event.

According to the coroner, Roger, who was also in the car, died from multiple traumatic injuries, but burns were not listed as a factor for his death. Burns were listed as a factor in Paul‘s death.

The cause of the actual car crash is still under investigation.

Our continued thoughts go out to Paul and Roger‘s family and friends during this difficult time.

Jared did you read your own thread? The header says he died of trauma and burn injuries yet in the body you say “but burns were not listed as a factor for his death.”

What does it matter anyhow? A loving father, actor and great philanthropic man is dead.

I hope it was a quick one, that he didn’t suffer. Too sad!

Didn’t think this could get any worse but it just did. Heartbreaking.

I wish some of your media outlets like JustJard & TMZ would have some respect and stop posting every single damnn detail.
You reported he died.. that should be that!
The public does not have to know every single little detail.
Allow the decease and his family some privacy!!

I hope this doesn’t sound too insensitive but if he had to die, I’m happy knowing he was unconscious when the car was on fire. Burning alive must be one of the most horrific ways to die.

I believe that dying by burning is the worst kind of death possible. I’d personally rather die in water (even though yeah, I’ve heard suffocating under water is….like burning from the inside but whatever it’s still less painful imo)…. Ugh… Anything that involves fire scares me like Hell.

I still can’t get over the fact that he is gone, those blue eyes he was so good! RIP you will never be forgotten ! :-(

Heath Ledger, Britney Murphy,Aaliyah, Corey Monteith, and now Paul Walker. It’s sad to see young people die at the peak of their careers. RIP.

I think the report means he was dead before the flames touched him. Well, I pray that’s what it means.

@Northman: burns were not listed as cause of death for Roger.
R.I.P Paul and Roger

he’s burning alive I don’t believe this he doesn’t deserve to die this way it’s really horrible please don’t publish this stuff I’m really heartbroken

@CutTheBS: I completely agree. It’s morbid and doesn’t need to be reported, it’s not our business.

When i heard the cause of death i went to my mother, told her and started crying. Never wanted to cry in front of her because i didnt knew him, but i did. I told her that i think he would be still alive, if there were no flames. and that i am scared he felt the pain. Mommys are the best, she told me he didnt felt the pain cuz of the crash and all the toxic gas. She seemed to be confident and now i am feeling a litte bit better. I am still deeply sad cuz he was my fav actor, kind of my hero…. I am trying to think bout something else but then there is this one moment and i am back on. It sucks! My mommy gave me a hug and sad: If he would be still alive u dont know how he and his body would survived a carcrash like this, maybe surviving this carcrash would be worse than to be an angel in heaven. I dont believe in god, i never did but yes i think he can feel all the love around the globe. Wherever Paul is i guess he’s happy. My mommy might be wrong but she make me feel better. Sammy from northgermany.

I feel so sick about this. Paul didn’t deserve to go like that. My heart is broken.


No……you didn’t read it. Roger’s death was not due to burns. Just traumatic injury. Paul was traumatic injury and BURNS.

But what I want to know is…was it the impact that killed him or the fire? He could have died prior to the fire from the impact. It seems unclear to me. I’m not trying to be stupid here but he easily could have died FROM the impact and the fire was just the after effect or just a combination of both… anyone???

This is so, so sad, he was a good guy, why he had to die this way?, i don´t get it.
a real tragedy

this is so heart wrenching. stop reporting this JJ, this is bad enough as is. a very beautiful man with a very big heart. god bless paul and roger :(

@Oscar: Being unconscious means your still alive so he did burn alive…

My heart is hurting so bad all over again. I cant imagine what Paul’s family and especially his daughter is feeling right now, I feel sooo sick to my stomach, this would not give me any type of closure whatsoever knowing my own father died burning to death… with no body to identify, no ashes?? Will this shock ever wear off?? May these 2 angels always rest in peace.
