The 33-year-old Wheldon was pronounced dead at 1:54 pm [9:54 BST] on Sunday at University Medical Centre in Las Vegas, where he was flown by medical helicopter after the crash at the track about 19 kilometres (12 miles) away.
After an autopsy, Murphy ruled the death an accident, the result of blunt trauma to the head due to a motor vehicle collision, and offered condolences to friends and family of the married father of two from England.
"We'll be working with family and IndyCar officials and the attending physicians to fully review the case in an effort to improve safety for drivers," he told The Associated Press.
Three other drivers were injured in the fiery crash on lap 11, none seriously.
Pippa Mann, 28, had surgery on a burned right finger and was released yesterday, as was 23-year-old JR Hildebrand, who had a bruised sternum. Will Power, 30, was evaluated and released on Sunday.

You're welcome. There is a thread in death videos with some good pics, as well.
