Paul Walker

Laughing & Smiling

Minutes Before Fatal Crash [PHOTOS]

12/10/2013 12:32 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1210_paul_walker_before_car_crash_launch_v2Paul Walker was in a great mood just moments before his fatal Porsche accident -- laughing and smiling in the passenger seat of the car that killed him.

The photos were shot as Paul and driver Roger Rodas were leaving the Santa Clarita charity car show that Walker had organized.

It's a jarring look into the final moments of the actor's life -- especially the juxtaposition of the gleaming red sports car ... and the fiery wreck it became just minutes later.

This truly tells you how precious life really is....
One moment you are smiling and having a good time and before the day is over you are now just a memory to to the world and to some you are still head line news.
We can't blame the media for what they write about after all you see a head line and you click on it to read it for yourself then you get offended. This is like being stuck in traffic trying to figure out why traffic is not moving, you wait and wait then you get to the location that it all started at and realize it was really nothing more than a cop giving someone a ticket but yet as you pass by you look over as long as possible to see what is going on as well, then proceed to complain about the traffic failing to realize YOU are the problem too! Negative attention and Negative feedback go hand and hand.....

Why is everybody glorifying a PEDOFILE? What was 33 old doing with a 16 year old? Would he let his 15 daughter date somebody in his thirties ? Yeah right. I don't respect this s*** of a man!!!

Anyone remember Nelson Mandela? Paul Walkers death is sad and tragic; condolences to all. But Nelson Mandela also died. Why is there no mention of this rock star?

I don't know if they did something to the photo to look like there is a face in the smoke,or didn't realize that it really looks like,and may be possible that it's roger Rodas holding the fire extinguisher on the ground..if so you should take this photo down,because if I noticed it,I'm sure tons and tons of other people noticed it to..I have seen some pretty disturbing things this past week on the internet..people taking photos from the accident and adding stupid stuff in them,like drawings of where their body's would have been..it's pretty disgusting and I think you guys should just let them R.I.P and let their family's mourn ...

Clearly an orb in the bottom picture. Possible the driver since he died first??? Maybe it is Paul or it could just be a spirit there to welcome them to cross over.

enough with the Walker feast
yes it was horrible
yes it was unexpected
yes he was famous
yes you can't get him out of your mind
but stop gorging on his death already TMZ
go take more pictures of amanda bynes, so we can see she is still crazy, she probably threw away her pills the minute she got out

Yes It's sad that Paul died it's even sadder that Paul's friend that was driving the car has not been wrote about or talked about he mattered to people also so let Paul RIP and think about the other person in the car and his family and friends

A definite cautionary tale. If you're going to be inside a vehicle traveling over 100 mph, at least make sure you're DRIVING the vehicle and not putting your life directly into someone else's hands.
