As previously reported, the Fast & Furious actor was killed on Nov. 30, when the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT in which he was a passenger crashed into a lamp post and burst into flames. An autopsy completed earlier this month indicated that the cause of death was a combination of "traumatic and thermal injuries" from both the impact of the accident and the resulting fire.

The actor's friend Roger Rodas -- believed to be the driver -- was also killed in the crash; he died upon impact. Both deaths were ruled an accident by the medical examiner. See more stars we lost in 2013.
