He was the passenger in the Porsche being driven by friend and financial adviser Roger Rodas who also died on November 30 2013 when Rodas' 2005 Porsche Carrera GT crashed. The sports car exploded into flames.

AUTOPSY RELEASED

Rodas was killed on impact alone, according to the autopsy released by the Los Angeles County coroner's office. Results of toxicology testing will take another six to eight weeks.

Sheriff's investigators were still trying to determine what caused Rodas to lose control of the Porsche. They said speed was a factor.

Universal Pictures has since announced that it has shut down production of 'Fast & Furious 7', the next movie in the series.
