LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – No drugs or alcohol were found in the bodies of “Fast & Furious” actor Paul Walker and his friend Roger Rodas after the fiery car crash that killed them in November, a coroner’s report released on Friday said.

Both Walker, 40, and Rodas, 38, tested negative for alcohol, and drugs including cocaine, opiates and marijuana were not detected, said the report from the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.
