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.

Sad that you look at him there, not knowing he only has 30 minutes to live. Sends chills down my spine.

I guess showing up to a charity event for typhoon victims in a ridiculously obnoxiously expensive car wasn't a great idea.

Condolences to both families. So sad. This was such a senseless way to die . Time to add a new license class for these cars. People are getting behind the wheel of these cars and don't know how to handle the power behind them. This is happening far too often.

Some are saying that this unfortunate event, may have been another fiery sacrifice from that secret society that everyone knows about. Think about the fire was just two intense. The people who found this scene, actually video taped, wreckage at the street level and you can see circular skid marks in the road. So either donuts were being done, drifting or they may have been racing someone. RIP Paul Walker and Roger Rodas.

Also, I feel that Paul Walker was actually driving and not Roger Roda.

It's a horrible thing - but what professional driver loses control of a car in a 45 mph zone? Maybe the car was defective?

I think the police or fire department and Porsche have to explain how and why the vehicle burst into flames moments after the crash. Cars don't just explode on impact like in the movies.

I just pray to Heavenly Father that they BOTH died quickly and their spirits departed before the FIRE consumed their earthly bodies. Unfortunately, I FEAR that they did suffer terribly for a few moments before passing. My most earnest prayers go out to both men's family and children who now must live the reminder of their own lives without their loving and giving fathers. May Heavenly Father grant them peace and serenity as time goes by and acceptance of this terrible event that many young people will see this for what it was......a terrible accident caused by a high performance vehicle that very unforgiving and can cause the death of an unsuspecting person or persons at a moment's notice. There is NO 'saving grace' for any of us who choose a dangerous path.
