It has been revealed that the cause of the horrific car crash that took the lives of Paul Walker and Roger Rodas may have been due to a malfunction with the vehicle. Specifically, the problem is said to have been a “steering fluid leak,” as reported by TMZ. This information was provided by sources closely tied to the shop where the vehicle was stored and maintained.

Sources connected to Always Evolving — the shop co-owned by Walker and the Porsche driver Roger Rodas — tell TMZ they saw evidence of a fluid burst and subsequent fluid trail before the skid marks at the accident scene. The AE sources point to the fact there is a noticeable absence of skid marks until just before the point of impact. They say if Roger had lost control the skid marks would show swerving, but instead the marks were in a straight line. They feel this cements the theory the driver didn’t have steering control.

The sources also said that the fact that the fire spread so quickly in the front of the car was quite suspicious. They say flames would be expected in the rear where the engine is, but fire in the front reinforces their theory of a fluid leak.

TMZ later wrote:

We’re told the $500,000 Carrera GT was NOT modified and was driven rarely so they believe any failure must be a factory defect. As one source put it … “Roger was a world class driver” — and while he might have been speeding (as cops have said) … the notion he just lost control is preposterous.

Celeb Dirty Laundry also had some things to say about the steering issue, saying:

If Rodas had tried to swerve the marks would have curved and shown a fight to control the vehicle. Instead, early analysis seems to point to the strong possibility of the car malfunctioning in a way that prevented Rodas from being able to steer at all.
