update_graphic_red_bar10:45 PM PT -- Vin Diesel just spoke to fans at the crash site. Right after the private memorial ended, fans were allowed back to the area ... and Walker's co-star and friend got on a patrol car loudspeaker to say, "Thank you for coming down here and showing that angel up in heaven how much you appreciated him."

Cops just cleared Paul Walker's fans and all media from the crash site ... in order to prepare for a private family memorial ... TMZ has learned.

Thousands of Walker's fans have been gathering on the site since Saturday afternoon to pay their respects -- but moments ago sheriff's deputies dispersed the crowd ... as well as all reporters and photographers.

A source close to Paul and Roger Rodas tells us the families just wanted some private time to mourn while visiting the site of the tragedy.

The family deserves some closure. Visiting the crash site is the first step. I wish them well and may Paul RIP.

If it was one of us that died in that spot, I seriously doubt they would close the road down just so our family and friends can mourn in peace.

Two men lost their lives, but the trolls are quick to make crapppy comments. I hope when you haters lose someone you love, someone doesn't take a crap on their graves.

TMZ is focused exclusively on Paul Walker's death so Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan, this is your chance to snort coke and make all the porn tapes your little hearts desire.

It does seem kinda morbid to gather there. I mean it certainly wasnt pauls favorite spot for gods sake. I dont get that but then again if it was my loved one maybe i would feel different.

They've hired a production company to film the memorial. That tells me they weren't clearing away the media for the sake of "privacy". They want exclusive rights to the footage so they can sell it at a higher price.
