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.

Leave the man rest in peace already,the continuous coverage of every little detail of this man's life per second is ridiculous! Making news off the dead is one thing but enough already!

Wouldn't it be nice if the media could just let things go with the report of his death? Do you really think it makes his family feel better to have pictures of his final seconds broadcast online and on tv? Was it really necessary to publicize that he may have been conscious and flailing around in the car 40 seconds before it caught on fire. You've planted horrific images in his daugher, parents and girlfriends minds that will last forever. Was it worth the money you made off the story?

And I hope the same for anyone pinned in a car after an accident
