Cops are investigating the possibility that Paul Walker was in the middle of a high-speed street race with another car at the time he crashed and died this weekend ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... investigators have received tips that Walker and the man driving the Porsche, Roger Rodas, had been racing prior to the crash ... and the high speed may have contributed to the wreck that killed both men.

Sources say ... the area where the crash occurred has a history of being a popular street racing location.

We're told cops are on the hunt for video and witnesses that could prove another car was involved.

Story developing ...

i believe it...just like i believe that this guy knew who he was....he was known for street racing on the screen and off. of course he pulled up on some kids showed his face and punched it,... and it wouldn't be the first time.... it is very sad he died...but when you live on the edge this might happen...its a risk we all take..... what they should be doing is looking at the sky blue m3 who was first film of burning car,,,,,the footage was so fresh that the paints red was still buring red... they were most likely racing them ...when they pulled up the first reaction of driver was to ''go, go'' .... its on youtube...please look at it...as i believe these guys know more about what happened.

If it was street racing, which I doubt it was, what the fock were they thinking????? And no offense, if it was street racing, my bet is the driver is to blame.

A truly sad loss.

God, why didn't Paul just try and jump out when he thought things were going wrong. Or why didn't he tell roger not to be a dumbazz. Sad loss

I hate when someone dies - accidentally - at someone else's hands. That is truly f*cked up!

CNN is also reporting --

"Investigators got a phone call tip Sunday suggesting that another car was at the scene when the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, driven by Walker's racing team partner, slammed into a light pole and burst into flames, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Sgt. Richard Cohen told CNN."

So if turns out it was a street race and they happen to find the other car & driver, then what? blame that guy for the deaths?
Not something that should happen but in this age of the blame game I can see that happening.

If this story is true it shouldn't be that hard to find someone who was in the other car. The Carrera GT is too fast for most cars to even have a chance. It would take another exotic car like an Enzo or something. Hopefully they weren't racing though.

I feel sorry for their families, but if this really was due to a street race they got what they deserved. Luckily nobody else was hurt. This guy had tons of money. If he wanted to race, he could afford to do it on a track.

There is no way that is a haven for racing -- there are a lot of family/children facilities, a church and various other businesses up there. The businesses go in a loop, there are only two ways in and out of there, and it dead ends at the businesses at the top of Kelly Pkwy. It goes in a circle like a racetrack, I suppose, but it's pretty small. Nobody would be that stupid to be racing in that area.

They should locate and investigate the 2 guys that were immediately on the scene and filmed the fireball. Wouldn't be surprised if they were driving the other car or knew something about it.
