Paul Walker's official cause of death was released by the Los Angeles County Coroner's office Friday.

According to the documents obtained by TMZ, Walker died from "combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries." The report went on to say that the Porsche he and Roger Rodas crashed in was going approximately 100 mph.

No traces of alcohol or drugs were found in either body.

Walker had "multiple fractures throughout his body, including his jaw, collarbone and left upper arm."

The report added that Walker's body was laying in a "pugilistic stance," as if he was bracing for impact.

There was also "scant soot in Walker's trachea," which suggests that he may have taken a breath after the crash.

The coroner found that there was 14 percent carbon monoxide saturation in Walker's blood stream, while Rodas had 10 percent. The normal level is 2 percent.

And while the report shed some more light into the fallen actor's death, producers are working around the clock to decide Walker's character's fate in Fast and the Furious 7.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, top executives have decided on how the main role, Brian O'Connor, will leave the successful films.

Apparently, O'Connor will retire and not be killed off of the action-packed franchise.

In another turn of events for the regarding Walker, two men accused with stealing from the crash site appeared in a Los Angeles County courtroom and agreed to return for a Feb. 25 preliminary hearing.
