|Paul Walker's Death: Investigators Recover 3 Black Boxes From Porsche To Be Used by teebiggs: 12:55pm On Dec 20, 2013|
Investigators have recovered all three black boxes from the Porsche in which Paul Walker died and all three are “viable" despite the car bursting into flames, a law enforcement source told the Daily News. Investigators with the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department are now in talks with Porsche to have engineers meet them in mid-January to plug the boxes into another Porsche Carrera GT model for data recovery, the source said
"One module should be able to tell the last speed recorded and whether the airbags deployed", the source explained. The other two should give information on the throttle and how much gas was going into the engine.Investigators are working with Porsche’s lawyers to arrange the assistance and that the automaker is covering all of the costs", the source said.
“We’re going to have to discuss how we’ll do this when we meet with them. We will bring the modules to them and work out what we do from there. We would like to keep things under our control. We discussed possibly renting another GT to plug them in,” the source said.
“I’m not really sure about the level of encryption in this case, but in other cases, we’ve been able to download and get the data in 10 minutes,” the source added. Walker, 40, died Nov. 30 when his friend and business partner Roger Rodas lost control of the exotic 2005 Porsche Carrera GT in which they were riding near their car shop in Santa Clarita, Calif.
