Autopsy results released Wednesday reveal that Paul Walker died from combined effects of the impact of the car crash and fire that followed.

His friend Roger Rodas, who witnesses say was driving the vehicle that crashed and killed both men on Saturday, died from multiple traumatic injuries.

The Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner conducted an autopsy on both bodies on Tuesday. Both deaths were ruled accidents. A toxicology analysis is still pending and could take weeks to complete.

Walker and Rodas died after a special-edition Porsche crashed into a light pole, two trees and a sign noting the street’s 45 m.p.h. speed limit.

An investigator says their car was going at least 90 m.p.h. when it crashed.
