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.

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 ...

Okay, seriously it's enough already with all these meaningless updates TMZ. We know what happened - a very sad, unfortunate tragedy. No need to keep adding to the sadness - What if this happened to your father or your family? Again, enough already.

I was a little surprised to see the small size of the tree trunk. I assumed they hit something large since the car burst into flames. Disturbing photo. Tragic.

I'd say that they may have been racing another car and that car is the blue one that appears to the left on the video, just as the video starts. In another video you can see a blue car pull over right ahead of where the crash happened and the occupants get out and run back. They say they dont see a car either just before or after the crash but if they were indeed racing they very likely blew away from the other car quickly and then crashed and the other car then catches up and pulls over just a head of the crash.

We all watch natural disasters happen on TV and the carnage that it brings to people. This was an unfortunate accident, not a murder.

If you dont like it or are offended by it then dont click to come here.

I guarantee, there is better video of this out there..this wasn't the only camera trained on the area at the time...That boulevard is covered by security cameras and you know the cops are pouring over all of it. If it wasn't racing, it was just some other STUPID antic that cost them. Professional driver? Not a chance. A pro would never have taken that car out on a public street. A moron with a drivers license maybe, but never a professional driver. Stewart, Johnson, Gordon, Foyt, Petty...not one of those VERY professional drivers would have been caught dead in that car, on that street, doing what these guys were doing. Screwin' around with a performance car on a public street. These two guys? Yeah, got caught dead in it....

The car sliding to a stop 4-5 sec behind appeared to be moving pretty fast . If they were not involved, they had to have seen what was going on before the wreck.

That was an awfully busy street to be going so fast on, good thing the driver didn't kill anyone but his passenger.
