A video showing the precise moment Paul Walker’s Porsche Carrera GT crashed into a tree and burst into flames has been released. The footage of the deadly crash was captured by CCTV cameras on the roof of an industrial park close to the crash site. The pic above was taken a few minutes after the accident on Saturday. It shows fire fighters and police physically wrestling one of Paul’s friends away from the scene.
Meanwhile a friend of Paul and Roger Rodas who was at the charity show on Saturday said the two friends took the Porsche out to check for a suspected mechanical issue and not for a joyride as is being reported.
‘As they were backing up the Carrera to put into the garage, it started stalling. I heard someone say, and I think it was Roger, “Why is the car stalling? Let’s take it around the block”, the friend told Hollywood Reporter. ‘Paul said, “Let me go with you really quickly. The whole premise of taking the car out for a drive was because something was wrong. These guys are business owners and Paul was a celebrity. They are responsible people. It was more like, “What the hell is wrong with this car? Let’s see what’s wrong and go for a drive”.’
