CNN had reported earlier on Monday that officials were looking into a phone tip suggesting that drag racing may have been involved in the crash that killed “Fast and Furious” actor Paul Walker, but according to the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept., the investigation is focusing on the speed of the Porsche Gt.
“Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station traffic investigators are continuing to document the investigation and have received eyewitness statements that the car involved was traveling alone at a high rate of speed,” the spokesman said Monday.
“No eyewitness has contacted the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Dept. to say there was a second vehicle. The posted speed limit in the area of the collision is 45 Mph.
