If I remember rightly the Carrera has a carbon fibre construction, with engine and fuel tank located together. My guess is it spun and hit the tree/post mid car - it's amazing how often performance cars split apart in accidents.

I've seen a video that seems to have been taken not long after the accident; no emergency services yet. The car was already well ablaze. There is a lot of debris on the road - don't know if it's from the Porsche - but LE should be able to reconstruct what happened.

Found it


‘Fast & Furious’ Star Paul Walker Killed In Car Crash

http://www.deadline.com/2013/11/acto...-fast-furious/

According to sources, the man behind the wheel was Roger Rodas, a friend of Walker’s and owner of Always Evolving, a Valencia-based performance shop for high-end vehicles, who listed Porsche Carrera GT as one of his top 3 favorite cars of all time on the company’s web site.

By the look of what is left of the car they would not have known what hit them. Were probably dead instantly. If the car was so destroyed I cannot see the human body surviving such trauma.

Hopefully they died instantly before the car caught on fire.

R.I.P. to both of them. Condolences to both their families.

I was looking at the road too, what looked like skid marks and debris. From my semi-trained eye it looks like the driver lost control and the car flipped and rolled into it's final resting place. I also think speed was a factor resulting in lost traction.

A shame and at such a young age. Although, I agree that the driver must have been speeding. RIP.

Sheesh, they had to be going awfully fast. The car isn't even recognizable.

RIP to Paul and his friend.

Horrid. The driver's son tried to save his dad. Many friends and family were at the scene immediately after the crash it was that close to the Charity event.


One witness, Jim Tort, who was at the event told the NY Daily News, Rodas' eight-year-old son tried to save his dad.

'I ran over afterwards, I was trying to find Roger's son.
'I found out his son had jumped the fence and gone over. He was trying to get his dad out.

Paul Walker was also in a movie with Reese Witherspoon, called Pleasantville.
That's where I remember him from. He is in the car talking to Reese Witherspoon around the minute
5 second mark in the Youtube video below.

Paul Walker

Body Unidentifiable

... Autopsy Delayed


Paul Walker's body was burned so badly the coroner needs his dental records to identify the body ... TMZ has learned.

A rep for the L.A. County Coroner tells us ... the bodies of Paul and his friend/business partner Roger Rodas are currently unidentifiable and their autopsies will be delayed until later this week.

We're told the coroner is waiting on both sets of dental records before proceeding.

This video shows pulling the car away. Just nothing left of it. There is a speed limit sign that says 45. They had to be going very, very fast.

The movie I associate him with is Joy Ride.

It will be easy to tell if he died instantly or not. Just gotta see if he inhaled some smoke. If there's smoke in his lungs... he was alive for a short while.

Reminded me of the guy from Jackass that died a couple years ago in a fiery car crash.

POLICE are investigating claims of dangerous driving after figure 8 patterns were reportedly found on the ground near the scene of the fiery wreck that took Hollywood star Paul Walker's life.

The Sheriff's Department said that speed was a factor in the crash. There was also a suggestion that the men may have been doing some dangerous driving in the minutes before the crash.

TMZ is reporting that actor Paul Walker has died in a car crash.
Actor Paul Walker has been killed in car crash north of Los Angeles, his publicist has confirmed.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the road near the site featured heavy track marks in "figure 8" patterns.

A representative from the county sheriff's office said he was unsure if the tracks were related to the crash.

I first noticed Paul walker in the movie "Into the Blue". I have always believed he was one of the most handsome men I have ever seen. Have not seen any of the fast and furious movies though. I really want to know how fast these guys were going to result in that much damage. Such a tragedy.

So sad..while not a fan of the FF franchise, I did however enjoy many of his other movies.. Namely Varsity Blues, for one.. **correction about the mother of his daughter**

Sad, sad news and so very eerie as I, too had earlier this week heard about the whole "Paul Walker is dead HOAX"..I mean WoW! What are the chances and then of all things to kill him it being a fast driving sports car..unbelievable..Tho, it was NOT Paul Walker who was driving the Porsche..Paul was a passenger in the vehicle when the deadly crash occurred.

**Please forgive the limitations that come w/my posting via mobile ATM**

Look at the amount of debris all over the road, it looks to me like the car must have rolled a few times as there are parts of car the full width of the road. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cg0jzXCDxpg

I'm so guessing .. but there is a move in a car called a figure-8 drift, basically it is what it sounds like, at top and bottom of the figure 8 the car drifts, you need a high performance car to achieve it because a normal car would not have the power to sustain the motion.
