Paul Walker suffered horrific burn injuries in the tragic car crash that killed him and his driver, and neither had alcohol or drugs in their systems, according to newly released autopsy reports obtained by the Daily News. 

Nearly all of Walker’s body was charred through the skin, and his hair color and eye color could not be determined upon visual examination, the gruesome report stated.

First responders gather evidence near the wreckage of a Porsche sports car that crashed into a light pole on Nov. 30, where Paul Walker and Rodas died.

Officials said the 40-year-old actor was found in a “pugilistic stance” with right wrist and left arm fractures, which suggested he had braced for impact.

The report also said Walker sustained jaw, collarbone, rib and pelvic fractures and had “scant soot” in his trachea, which suggested he at least partially inhaled some of the smoke.

According to Rodas’ autopsy report, police believe Rodas was driving approximately 100 mph or faster when he lost control for unknown reasons and partially spun around on a clean, well-lit and deserted street in Valencia, Calif.

The Porsche then struck a curb, and the driver’s side hit a tree and a light post before spinning a full 180 degrees, hitting another tree on the passenger side and bursting into flames, the report said.
