The report says driver Roger Rodas was going between 81 mph and 94 mph when his 2005 Porsche Carrera GT began to drift as it lost control after coming out of a curve.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and California Highway Patrol did the investigation. Neither commented on report’s findings Tuesday.
