According to a new report, accident reconstruction experts believe that reflective plastic markers caused the horrific car accident on Nov. 30 in which Paul Walker died. They claim that the car went hydroplaning after it hit roadbumps, called Botts’ dots, causing Roger to lose control of the Porsche, reports TMZ.
The Porsche’s racing tires have very little tread, so it’s just like driving the vehicle on ice which results in the crash – told the outlet. People reported that Paul and Roger were heading almost 90 miles per hour in their car, however the law enforcement hasn’t yet confirmed anything official about what caused the fatal crash.
In an earlier report, TMZ also stated that a steering wheel fluid leakage could have been the cause of the accident.
According to the New York Daily News, Paul’s family made arrangements for his funeral at Forest Lawn Memorial Park on Dec. 10. The funeral will be private concerning Paul’s 15-year-old daughter, Meadow. She is understandably having a difficult time, and the family doesn’t want strangers surrounding the girl as she needs to feel comfortable when saying her final goodbye to her beloved father, sources connected with Paul’s family told TMZ.
However, they’ve invited Fast & Furious’ crew to the funeral because the family is aware of their closeness with Paul. Family sources also told that there will be a larger memorial after the funeral, but it will also be by invitation only.
