Hearne: The Verdict is in on Paul Walker Death Crash

need-for-speed-trailer-starring-aaron-paul-looks-like-the-sixth-season-of-breaking-badMost mainstream media continue to tiptoe around the subject but…

It’s now clear that a wildly-illegal, over-the-top joyride is to blame for the deaths of “Fast & Furious” star Paul Walker and his race car driving pal late last year.

Put another way, it was no one’s fault but their own, just like local race car driver Brian Haupt of Carriage Motor & Works stated here shortly after the grisly, November 30 accident in Santa Clarita, Calif.

Walker’s Porsche was traveling at more than 100 miles per hour when it spun out of control and crashed, according to a report by the Los Angeles County Coroner.

That’s the bad news…

The good news is neither Walker nor the driver had alcohol, cocaine, marijuana or other impairing drugs in their systems, the report says.

Meaning their ridiculously dangerous and illegal, life threatening in-town cruise was premeditated by two men in full control of their faculties. And that their utter disregard for the safety of others – and themselves – went down in the sober light of day.

And for that, a petition is being circulated to rename the 45 mile-per-hour street after the two? Go figure.

According to the coroner, the car was driving at an “unsafe speed”  when the driver lost control “for unknown reasons.”

The Porsche split in half after crashing into a tree and a lamp post before erupting in flames.

‘Fast-and-Furious-7’-to-Cast-Cody-Walker-not-Finalized-650x458USA Today describes the injuries to Walker as “horrific” with all but remnants of his clothes burned completely off his body. According to the coroner Walker died in what is described as “pugilistic stance.”

For those who didn’t take Latin, the word pugil, means fighter or boxer, indicating Walker likely saw the crash coming and raised his arms in a defensive position.

No mechanical issues with the car were found, nor debris on the road that might have contributed to the crash, the report says. Setting aside the weak excuses offered up by Walker’s friends and associates, who undoubtedly knew full well that the pair were driving at speeds well above the posted limits.

article-2516303-19BF938300000578-301_964x704So what if anything did we learn from this lightly reported incident?

Apparently not much.

Because Fast & Furious 7 will come out in April of 2015, having been delayed from this summer, to allow filmmakers time to dream up a discreet way to “retire” Walker’s character without killing him off in a car crash.

Meanwhile it’s full steam ahead for Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul‘s new movie Need for Speed.

“Is it too soon for a new film featuring high speed stunts?” asked The Insider‘s Thea Andrews in reporting on Walker’s crash, juxtaposed with scenes from the Paul’s movie that features a McLaren P1 and a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport (with a top speed of over 400 miles-per-hour) traveling at breakneck speeds through city streets.

Talk about glorifying dangerous driving…

“We’re about to go really, really, really fast,” Paul says, looking into the camera with a sly smile as he takes off in what appears to be a souped up Shelby Mustang. “Looking (out) and realizing I’m going 125 miles-per-hour, weaving through traffic and they’re allowing me to do that, is a dream come true.”

    The was never a doubt in my mind that the cause of death was yet another violation of U.S. Code 00001: Felony Stupid.

    Men like to do risky things. Why? Because they’re fun and we’re wired that way. That’s how Everest got climbed, the west got settled and civilization built. I read this the other day and thought it apropos: “We took risks. We knew we took them. Things have come out against us. We have no cause for complaint.” It’s unfortunate that someone died taking a needless risk but on the other hand he knew the risk and did it anyway.

      I wouldn’t put driving 100 mph on a city street in the same category as westward migration.

      Rodas and Walker are two of the latest Darwin Award winners.

      Check out numerous YouTube videos in the general category of “Supercars, Stupid Drivers”. There are plenty of examples of grossly negligent driving. The main problem: these idiots think that they are invincible. They also put others at risk, which not only makes them stupid but negligent as well.

    You would think that someone who stars in stupid movies about cars going furiously fast and defying the laws of physics would know that it’s fantasy, but I guess he was a method actor.

    • Thomas says:

      Delusions of grandeur? I knew plenty of people who imagine themselves race car drivers. Some even mod their cars and participate in amateur races, and they also drive incredibly negligently on public roadways. Future Darwin Award winners, and they might end up taking out a few other people in the process. But until they have a crash or kill someone, they’re convinced that they are totally in control and are the best drivers on the planet.

    Look Hearne no doubt they were speeding, it was a bit wild, they were in an exotic sports car…guess what, that’s what ‘boys’ do…you say over 100 like it was 1000…I’m sure you have gone fast before, I have…100 today is not that crazy…yes in a neighborhood it can be, true…when in LA I had a new big engine Vette…went on a sidestreet to check it out…floored it..got up to like 130 or more…nobody was around…just to feel the impact…that’s why you have those cars…it was wrong, nothing happened but yes it could have…I still think its all very sad…the man’s dead and he was a good guy…that’s all I see out of it…the person who was punished to the full extent didn’t get a ticket, he got killed…enough said…and I felt bad about it for him and his family.

    • the dude says:

      Exactly, like Hearne hasn’t had the little hamster on the wheel spin a little faster on the Fiat every now and then.

    • Thomas says:

      CG, is it really worth risking your life (or someone else’s life) for the temporary thrill of driving 130mph on a public roadway? Let’s say the next-to-worst thing happened and you crashed and were permanently paralyzed from the waist down. Would you regret having driven so fast?

    To you hearne….after you ran several stories trying to run down
    Charlie…here’s something that’s pretty interesting. From those of us
    who know and love this guy here’s a real story to replace some b.s.
    about a phony actor dying in a car crash!!!!

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. – At 87 years old, a Kansas City icon is still devoted to helping and serving others. Former mayor, Dr. Charles Wheeler, was in the right place at the right time Monday afternoon and didn’t hesitate to help a woman in need.

    Dr. Wheeler was leaving a St. Luke’s medical building when he saw a group of people gathered around a woman on the ground having a seizure.

    “When I have a seizure I usually know when it’s going to happen, so I just told my son to sit down and I sat down,” explained Jamie Struss.

    Struss has epilepsy. She was leaving a doctor’s appointment when it happened. Her husband went to get the car and she went down.

    The seizure attracted a lot of attention, but it was the hand of Dr. Wheeler that touched Struss the most.

    “He was just very calming and he made sure I was on my side, covered my hand with his and asking me questions to keep me alert, letting me know my son was okay,” said Struss.

    Dr. Wheeler said he was doing what’s been in his blood his whole life, helping someone in need. For Struss, it meant a great deal ‘how’ he helped.

    “He got on the floor for me, knowing he would need help getting back up, and he did that to help me and that is just something that means a lot to sacrifice that type of thing,” said Struss.

    She sent an e-mail to FOX 4 hoping to get in touch with Dr. Wheeler. When we reached out to him, he agreed to meet with Struss in person.

    “It was very nice what you did for us what you did for me, very much wanted to say, ‘Thank you,’” Struss said to Wheeler.

    Dr. Wheeler said the lobby was full of people and he came in at the end. He got down on the ground and grabbed her hand.

    “I wanted to feel if it was warm, what her pulse was.” said Wheeler.

    Little did he know that gesture would have such a huge impact.

    “Doctors are trained to do that, they say do no harm, great motto for medical profession,” explained Wheeler.

    Struss and her husband had no idea who the older man in the bow tie was, but now, he’s someone they’ll never forget.

    “It’s now clear that a wildly-illegal, over-the-top joyride is to blame for the deaths of “Fast & Furious” star Paul Walker and his race car driving pal late last year.”

    Now clear? Didn’t we all know that the second that tuna can they were in burst into flames? Not sure what the news is here.

    • Thomas says:

      There are still plenty of Walker fans who refuse to acknowledge the apparent truth. At first it was bots dots, mechanical malfunction, nicked an exposed gas line, etc. Then when the offical report came out that Rodas was driving in excess of 100 mph some fans are now claiming that the gas pedal was stuck, as if caught under a floor mat. I guess they haven’t seen the Carrera GT pedals.
