SHOW ME HOW
Walker died Saturday afternoon when the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT he was riding in crashed into a pole, hit a tree and went up in flames.
The L.A. County Department of Coroner stated today that the Fast and the Furious actor died of "multiple traumatic injuries." Driver Roger Rodas, a sometime racer and friend of the actor's, also died.
