Paul Walker

The production team behind the Fast & Furious movie franchise released a moving tribute to actor Paul Walker, 40, who was incinerated along with a friend in a single car accident in California last weekend.

Predictably, the coroner's report listed the cause of Walker's death as "combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries" from the high speed impact and the fire that engulfed the $450,000 Porsche Carrera GT that Walker was riding in.

According to the coroner's report, Walker initially survived the violent impact, but he died "within seconds" after the crash.

Paul Walker and Roger Rodas

The entertainment world was shaken to its core by the news of the tragic death of 'Fast & Furious' franchise star Paul Walker over the weekend.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says excessive speed was a factor in the death of Walker, 40, and his financial adviser, Roger Rodas, 38.

Rodas was at the wheel of a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT when it hit a light pole and wrapped itself around a tree near the site of a fundraiser that Walker attended on Saturday in Valencia, CA.

Emergency responders found the mens' bodies nearly incinerated inside the mangled wreckage of the half million dollar sports car.

Walker's death was a freakish footnote to the underground racing movie franchise that made him a household name.

Cop shooting at minivan

CBS News aired a shocking video showing a New Mexico cop firing gunshots at a minivan full of children.

The incident took place last month during a traffic cop, when police pulled over a minivan driven by Orianna Ferrel. Ferrel, 39, was stopped for speeding at a blistering 71 in a 55 mph zone, according to the cops.

Ferrel was ordered out of the vehicle, but she sped off instead. Cops gave chase and Ferrel eventually pulled over. The soccer mom was dragged out of the vehicle and taken behind the van, where the cop attempted to cuff her in view of her hysterical children. For some reason, she ran back around to the driver side door with the cop in pursuit.
