Paul Walker: Video Shows Car Engulfed in Flames After Deadly Crash

Paul Walker Video Shows Car Engulfed

A video taken moments after a car crash that killed “Fast and Furious” actor Paul Walker and another man shows their red Porsche in flames along a quiet street in Santa Clarita.

Walker was apparently the passenger in the Porsche, which killed the actor and business partner Roger Rodas, soon after the duo attended a local charity event.

Sheriff’s officials said speed may have been a factor in the single-car crash.

The video, posted to YouTube, shows the red Porsche Carrera GT engulfed in flames with debris scattered on the road.

“The car is in half. I can’t tell if there is someone in there,” one person on the video is heard saying.

“Yes, there is someone in there,” a voice later confirms in the one-minute video.

The single-vehicle crash occurred around 3:30 p.m. on Saturday in the 28300 block of Rye Canyon Loop.

Walker, from Glendale, CA, had been expected to return to Atlanta next week to begin filming the seventh installment in the “Fast & Furious” franchise.

“Paul was truly one of the most beloved and respected members of our studio family for 14 years,” Universal Pictures said in a statement. “We send our deepest and most sincere condolences to Paul’s family.”
