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.

Is it me or does anyone see in the photo of the crash there is an Orb to the left of the tree in the black smoke? It can't be glare off the camera because glare can't reflect in smoke.

Is it just me or does anyone else see the Orb floating in the blackest smoke to the left of the tree? Just to the left and above the right passenger side front head light. It can't be glare from the lense because glare can't reflect off of smoke.

Does anyone else see the "image" on the last pic that looks like a person leaning into the passenger window? Just above the hood?

How many times are you going to post something about this crash? I mean there is only so many times you can try to catch headlines before it becomes really trashy and disgusting. Let the family and friends grieve in peace and stop reminding everyone of the tragedy that happened. I know violence and bad news is what sells but maybe you should focus more on the good that is happening out there. Less about Paris Hilton and Lindsey lohan!

There is a difference between TMZ "doing their job" informing the fans and covering things gratuitously and disrespectfully. Any information fans need to know can be conveyed in a somewhat sensitive manner. I'm not saying it's all rainbows and roses cuz obviously this is a horrific situation. But pictures of him smiling and laughing immediately juxtaposed with pictures of the fire engulfing the car and it's occupants? When they have already released sufficient pictures of the car fire? Such poor poor taste. Not that I'm surprised. Officially done with TMZ...

so sad. This should remind people life is short and it can change in a matter of seconds, no matter who or how old you are.
