Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department investigators said early Sunday that “speed was a factor” in the single-car collision that took the life of actor Paul Walker and friend Roger Rodas over the weekend.

The pair's 2005 Porsche Carrera GT was "engulfed in flames" when deputies arrived at the scene in Valencia, Calif., at around 3:30 p.m. PT (6:30 p.m. ET). Two occupants were later pronounced dead.

Walker's representative Ame Van Iden and a law-enforcement source both confirmed to NBC News that the 40-year-old actor was among the victims. NBC Sports confirmed that the other victim was Rodas, 38, CEO of an auto-performance shop and a driver in the Pirelli World Challenge series.
