Plastic road markers known as Botts’ Dots could have contributed to the sudden death of “Fast & Furious” actor Paul Walker.
Stunt experts are theorizing that the speeding Porsche GT that Walker, 40, and Roger Rodas crashed in actually may have hydroplaned as a result of the road bumps — sources close to the Walker family reportedly told TMZ.
The plastic markers, combined with excessive speed, may have caused a reaction similar to hydroplaning on ice, the family reportedly learned.
The theory suggests that the action star and his business partner’s speed, which experts say likely approached or exceeded 90 mph, caused the car to lose traction after hitting the dots.
While the stunt experts’ theory may be possible, law enforcement officials told the gossip site that they have not found the exact cause of the accident on Nov. 30, while confirming speed was a factor.
Walker’s funeral arrangements were underway Tuesday at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in the Hollywood Hills, the Daily News learned.
His family picked up and moved the “Varsity Blues” actor’s remains to the famed cemetery on Monday after an autopsy was completed last week confirming he died of traumatic and thermal injuries, a source with the Los Angeles County coroner’s office said.
The invite-only memorial will only be open to Walker’s close friends and family, including his “Fast & Furious” castmates, The News learned.
