Autopsy results for Fast & Furious star Walker may come on Tuesday
LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Autopsy results for Fast & Furious actor Paul Walker could be released as early as Tuesday as medical examiners wait on dental records to identify the actor's body, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Coroner said on Monday.
Walker, 40, who became a symbol of street-racing and car culture in his roles in the Fast & Furious franchise, was a passenger in a fiery one-car crash on Saturday in Santa Clarita, California, about 30 miles northwest of Los Angeles.
"We're waiting for dental records," Los Angeles County Coroner spokesman Edward Winter said. "The bodies are unidentifiable."
Media reports identified the driver of the red 2005 Porsche Carrera GT that crashed into a utility pole and burst into flames as Roger Rodas, 38, a friend of Walker's who owned Always Evolving, an auto dealership and racing services company in Santa Clarita.
