Paul Walker Crash

The Moment Of Impact & Massive Inferno

[VIDEO]

12/2/2013 6:07 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The high speed crash that killed Paul Walker and Roger Rodas caused a huge explosion and fireball that could be seen for miles ... and it was all recorded on a security camera that captured the precise moment of impact.

The footage was recorded from a rooftop camera in an industrial park next to the crash site. It shows the initial collision (on the right of the screen) which caused the Porsche to explode in flames ... moments before another, larger blast sends a fireball high into the sky.

What's also interesting -- there appears to be no other cars either immediately in front of or behind the Porsche at the time of the crash.

As we reported, police were investigating whether Rodas had been involved in a high-speed street race before the accident.

Heathens don't want to mention it. But it's a good thing he's a Christian. Jesus, don't leave home without him.

Did anyone notice the car come drifting into a parking spot, quick reverse and ran to the wreck? That looks like a professional driver or stunt driver to me! awfully big coincidence it pulls in seconds afterwards.

It was a very tragic accident and nothing more so lets stop saying sht like his chared remains and all the other negative trash you have been saying and try to find a little compassion for him , his family ,. And his fans . Rest in peace Paul walker you will be missed by so many . :(

This looks like a bomb to me. Just cause your power steering goes doesn't mean you suddenly swerve going 35 mph on a straight road and hit a tree. Just because you hit a tree doesn't mean your car explodes in a huge fireball. I have never heard of any accident causing this.


People crash race cars all the time. There is not this much damage due to fire and explosions on a race track. This looks like an access road to strip malls or an office park, not even a high speed race track.


This explosion is very suspicious. These two men were saving the orphans of the Philippines. Maybe the NWO resented that, cause they needed more children they could traffic in the billion dollar a year sexual slavery industry.


This is like a scene from a Fast and Furious movie, international criminals rigging up elaborate crimes to cover their illicit activities. I wish there really was a Fast and Furious team to stop them.

I agree with Amy, BLUE CAR!!!!!!!!!!! Ok u see the 1st car on the scene drifting, these guys posted a video on youtube in real time seconds after the accident. They sound totally freaked out, listen to second :31, one of the males says "don't givem up" IMO meaning don't nark out to cops the fact they were racing with blue car. I find it hard to believe the cops haven't seen this video CHECK OUT THE VIDEO IN REAL TIME. tell me what you think. http://youtu.be/sf53NFFX45g

Sad, but SO STUPID.

Worst way to die is an unnecessary death, and to be doing 150 mph or wtf speed that day - just stupid on public roads.

People already drive like idiots, then movies like these certainly don't help things.

We had to put up with Hulk Hogan's kid doing all his road racing on Tampa Bay roads, and if you recall, that didn't end well, either.

And still, people defended him. 'Drift' racing was something we didn't 'get' and we couldn't seem to make these stupid drivers to understand that public roads are NOT the place for that crap.

Wouldn't know that from any of the movies, it glorified just the opposite and it is make believe and most of us can discern that - but YOLO!!

How many times have stunts in these movies been replicated and caused deaths that NO ONE cares about, like they seem to care here.

Stupid and senseless death, we should learn that much from it all....

Now where is the REAL video? UK news is reporting a couple thought they were watching a movie being filmed. They taped the car actually crashing (street view). It is also being reported by many places that they saw someone trying to get out. This is before his friends showed up like right after it crashed.

who cares    

Oh Paul walker got a tree up his ass and got roasted like the white marshmallow he is, I betcha if they also killed a mother and her child you would still have his groupies saying poor Paul.... Paul didn't get in that car to go the speed limit he himself ignores speed limits. Paul is no different then you or me, it is you that put him on a pedestal for no reason... You got girls defending him because he was fine and male fans defending him because they do the same thing in their cars.. Grow up and how about idolizing someone you actually know. Like a parent, uncle, aunt teacher, Because none of you knew this reckless idiot who had no problem putting innocent people in danger... Again he didn't get in that car to drive 55 he got in that car to go 110 on city streets. You got idiots saying oh it was a malfunction. No it was speed and a total disregard for life and the safety of other motorist on the road that killed them...

And you know Paul Walker was down for driving that fast how? He's never been in the news for any antics. You ever been in a car with a friend who's driving stupid?

After the conclusion of the results in the morgue may be that the driver was a completely different person with no experience in managing a supercar ...
