Paul Walker

Final Moments Before Fatal Ride [Photo]

Moments before Paul Walker took what turned out to be a fatal ride -- he posed proudly next to the exotic car that exploded on impact in the deadly accident.

Paul was photographed with the red 2005 Porsche Carrera GT that belonged to his friend Roger Rodas. They were attending a fundraiser in Santa Clarita, CA.

We're told the photos and video were taken about 30 minutes before the accident.



As TMZ first reported ... Paul had put together the charitable event -- through his Reach Out Worldwide organization -- to support typhoon relief efforts in the Philippines.

Paul was the passenger in the Porsche when Rodas lost control and slammed into a tree. The car exploded, and the Sheriff's Department says speed was a factor.

That car must've been going at an unbelievable speed to create an impact like that . Hard to imagine anyone surviving that accident .

Speed was a factor? No ****. So sorry that this tragedy occurred, way too young. Rest in peace.

Jeez. Based on that picture of the car after the accident and how demolished it is, there was just no chance for him. Surviving that would have been a miracle. What a damn shame.

This is so crazy...I photographed his brother's wedding a couple of weeks ago here in Orange County and he was the bestman. Totally a nice and really funny guy. Super down-to-earth. So sad to hear about this tonight :(

That car looks like a crumpled roasting pan at the bottom of a bonfire. From hitting a tree in a parking lot? No way does that add up. Then his 8 friends got locked in a squad car for trying to cut Paul out of the burning car, while the firemen just stood there with a hose and did not attempt an extraction. This is looking very suspect.

Why are there firemen there with such tiny hoses? Couldn't they come with the big truck and use that hose? I am sure they drove over in the regular fire truck and that there was a hydrant in that office park. It seems like they are squirting at it when the whole fire could have been put out before the car melted like a thermite reaction. A couple of hoses from the truck seem like they could put out a car fire.

Too fast... too furious... Is there a tree in the MIDDLE of the car ? Looks like the car crashed with a rediculously high speed...
