According to TMZ, the report revealed Walker sustained multiple fractures from the crash throughout his body, including his jaw, arm, ribs and pelvis.  Walker's body was burned so badly that his organs could not be donated.

Walker's official cause of death was from "combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries", TMZ reports.  Walker's body was positioned as if he were "bracing himself for impact."

The driver of the car, Roger Rodas, reportedly suffered a skull fracture exposing a portion of his brain.  Neither Rodas nor Walker had alcohol or drugs in their system. 

Both men reportedly died almost immediately after the accident.  However, the report states Walker's body could not be positively verified due to his extensive burns. 

"According to a witness' statement, the Porsche that the pair was traveling in, Rodas lost control of the vehicle, which partially spun around before hitting a curb and struck a tree, then a light post, on the driver's side. The collisions caused the car to spin again, striking a tree on the passenger's side before bursting into flames," The Wrap reports.

The car was reportedly driving more than 100 mph before the vehicle spun 180 degrees.  The reason why Rodas lost control of the vehicle remains unconfirmed.

Walker's "Fast & Furious" costar Vin Diesel posted a photo of the pair together on his Facebook page as the actor remembered 2013 on Jan. 1.

"There was always moments of child-like laughter," Diesel wrote.  "We had accomplished so much by 2013.  P.S. The complexities of Brotherhood, and the painful void of it's absence."

Walker died before completing filming on the upcoming "Fast & Furious 7".  The film was delayed for an April 10, 2015 release.
