Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has officially determined that Paul Walker died in a car crash caused by "unsafe speed for the roadway conditions," ruling out mechanical failure and drug overdose.

Officials said that Walker's 2005 Porsche Carrera GT was traveling between 80 and 93 mph when it crashed in Santa Clarita, Calif., on November 30, killing Walker and his friend Roger Rodas.

Rodas was driving the car at such speeds in a 45 mph zone.

Walker was on a short break from shooting Fast & Furious 7 when he died. Filming resumed last week, with Walker's leftover scenes to be shot using CGI and body doubles.
