"When the police were here, I told them exactly what I saw and I gave them my story and they took it," eyewitness Abe Rodriguez said on camera. "They wrote it down and that was that."

But the police report clearly stated that no eyewitnesses saw a street race, and that security cameras at the nearby industrial park didn't capture it, either.

However, the report did state that cameras caught a parade of cars arriving at the crash site, which supported Rodriguez's account.

"Police picked two camera shots from security cameras that were no good," Rodriguez explained. "This industrial area has cameras everywhere. There are cameras all over. Nobody bothered pulling them out to see what happened." Adding, "I know what I saw!"

As previously reported, Walker and Roda were both killed after their Porsche slammed into a tree at 100 mph on Thanksgiving weekend in 2013.

Find out what else is being kept quiet when Paul Walker: Collision Course premieres on March 18 at 9 pm ET on Reelz.
