Paul Walker Crash

The Moment Of Impact & Massive Inferno


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.

Know what? I believe that the people who wrote about how we do not respect each other was true. That includes the people who wrote this piece and most of the commenter here. The two people you are talking about are dead. Respect that! Whatever caused the accident cannot be undone. Respect their families, and try to respect yourself by not being such jerks.

Time for Congress to ACT! Need to ban these high powered assault weapons! As NY Gov. Cuomo would say, 'You don't need to go 185 mph to drive a car!'

Hey TMZ wonder how famous those four that were accidentally killed by that NY commuter train crash that seems to have also been going a tad too fast were to their loved ones?! Guess we'll never know.

You will be missed Paul Walker. In the world of acting, you certainly seemed like a decent, kind, compassionate and giving person. One that did not become involved in drugs and thugs, but tried to make a difference in this world, by donating to different causes, truly helping others. This I do consdier a hero. You could have just squandered your money away, instead, you wanted to do something good fo help someone else less fortunate. I'm sure you are walking the streets of gold in heaven now. Your family and friends are in my prayers, as well as your friend who died, and his friends and family. God bless.

Wow to all the B.S. posts from people who view a video and come up with some sort of a conspiracy theory - without questioning witnesses, measuring skid marks, etc, viewing the actual damage to the vehicle, and autopsy reports. Obviously they're watching too many X-files re-runs...

Why is this news...good for the stuipid bastard. Just glad that no one else other than those in the car were killed. Hey did you know a few US soldiers were killed the same day, no reports about that. Those fighting to give that friggin idiot the freedom to drive wreckless get killed and nothing!

The car had a stalling problem, the mentioned this at the garage he was trying to back in and it stalled, my car is currently stalling while driving as well, there could have been a fuel leak or malfunction with the car that in fact caused the stalling and the 1st explosion, a fuel line leak, THE CAR WAS STALLING AT THE SHOP!
