Investigators have determined that the Porsche “Fast & Furious” star Paul Walker was riding in was going approximately 90 mph when it crashed and killed the actor and his business partner last November, according to the Associated Press.

A person who reviewed the crash investigation report said it was unsafe driving, not mechanical problems, that caused the crash.

The report concluded that Roger Rodas was going between 81 mph and 94 mph when his 2005 Porsche Carrera GT began to drift on a California street before smashing into a light pole.

Walker was on break from shooting “Fast & Furious 7” in November when the crash occurred.
