The Internet and news outlets were filled with stories about "Fast and Furious" co-star Paul Walker's tragic death on Nov. 30. New evidence regarding the car crash may point to mechanical failure as a cause of the accident. According to reports from sources with connections to an auto shop owned by Walker and a friend, evidence at the accident scene indicates the driver might not have had control of the car just before impact.
Reports indicate that Walker came to the auto shop as his friend and co-owner was attempting to trouble shoot a Porsche with known, but unidentified, issues. The actor joined his friend for a test drive of the vehicle, electing to ride in the passenger seat. According to reports, the duo was returning from the test drive when the accident occurred. The sight of the fatal explosion was approximately 500 yards from the actor's auto shop.
