An investigation continues into the fiery car crash that killed “Fast and Furious” movie star Paul Walker and another man in the Santa Clarita Valley.

The LA County coroner’s office has not yet officially identified the bodies of Walker and 38-year-old Roger Rodas, who was reportedly behind the wheel Saturday when the car slammed into a light pole and a tree in Valencia.

Spectators say they were unable to rescue the men because flames from the wreck jumped 15 to 20 feet high.

Meanwhile, executives at the studio behind the collection of movies are trying to move forward in their films without Paul Walker. It’s something that studios have had to do in the past.
