The crash is still being investigated, though police have ruled out the possibility that another vehicle was involved. They do believe speed was a factor.

Although according to some reports, Walker and his friend Roger Rodas, who was driving, had taken the car out for a test drive because they thought something was wrong with it. (Via The Hollywood Reporter)

Walker is survived by his family and friends, including his father and 15-year-old daughter.
