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.

If someone got that close to take that photo, he would have been close enough to toss something like gravel or oil at the tires and cause the car to go wonky. When are people gonna realize this might be MURDER?

Which is a better way to go - smiling and loving your final moments on the earth and dying quickly or through a nasty long term illness. He died happy - as many of us would like to do. They did not hurt anyone but themselves in the accident that occurred. Hindsight is ALWAYS 20/20.

BTW, who pays for the car when in comes out that speeding was the cause?

I'm sure he was laughing and smiling, after all he was finally riding in his dream car. Any normal person would have had the same reaction. On the other hand, TMZ, I'm sure his family doesn't want a blow by blow, "these are the intricate details" of how he died. Time to let him rest.

to all of you high and mighty folks who routinely blast tmz about the paul walker situation:
if it truly offends you so damn much- QUIT READING THE ARTICLES!!!!!!
you jerks just want to feel good atop your soapbox of righteousness pretending you are standing up for decency. tmz is a paparazzi site.
i tell ya what, why do you go down the a homeless shelter and start yelling at all the people there to get a job too!!!

So? What is the point of this? It isn't like he knew he was going to die in a horrible crash shortly thereafter.

TMZ will not let this go until they get footage of his ghost at the crash site. As others have said, enough is enough.

Come on guys. You are beating this to death. Don't be like the major networks. You gonna show us him pissing just before he gets in the car? Leave it alone.

In good taste, TMZ, I wouldn't have posted this photo. It's cruel to Paul and Roger's family.

This was just a way for TMZ to get to post the fiery car picture and rerun a story that should be over by now.
