The special edition 2005 Porsche Carrera GT that Fast & Furious star Paul Walker was riding in was traveling at over 100 mph when it swerved out of control, crashed and burst into flames, according to a new report.

The report, issued Friday by the Los Angeles County Coroner just over a month after the Nov. 30 wreck claimed Walker, 40, and the driver, Roger Rodas, 38, confirms earlier, unofficial reports that speed was the main cause of the wreck on public streets in Santa Clarita, Calif.

It also provides a detailed description of the crash. The report says the bodies were so badly burned that Rodas had to be identified through dental records, while Walker “cannot be positively identified visually.”
