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 ...

So which is it? The car malfunctioned or it was a street race??

Has anyone seen Hercules Street?? It's a circular road that goes around a business park. A dream road for people who want to run their cars. Right before the spot where they crashed is a blind curve, so you know when they were speeding around that curve they lost control.

We all know the car didn't malfunction. Come on.

Truth Must be Told    

Roger Rodas was part of the crush too. Why is Paul Walker getting all he attention but non for Roger? Don't they all have goals, dreams, families, etc? Aren't they all human? Why value one more than the other?

If they both knew something was up with the car and was checking it out then I very seriously doubt they would have been speeding, nor racing, there is a blue car shows up right when that big explosion happens and is first there???? Think they should be investigated and guy who failed to park it like wrote in one article I read and didn't;not trying to judge or point fingers but something don't feel right about this at all.
