Crash investigators have determined that the Porsche carrying Fast & Furious star Paul Walker was travelling at approximately 90mph when it lost control on a California street and smashed into a lamppost, killing the actor and his friend.

A person who has reviewed the investigators' report said that it concluded unsafe driving, not mechanical problems, caused the crash.

The report says driver Roger Rodas was going between 81mph and 94mph when his 2005 Porsche Carrera GT began to drift as it lost control after coming out of a curve.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and California Highway Patrol carried out the investigation.
