Paul Walker was tragically killed in a violent car accident and subsequent explosion and fire. This heartbreaking new video shows the horrifying and untimely accident.

Paul Walker’s Tragic Car Accident Shown In Video

The video of the accident shows black smoke pouring out of the car, which had already crashed on the side of the road by the time the witness started filming. The car then exploded into bright orange flames which immediately engulfed the vehicle. Debris was scattered all over the road in Santa Clarita, Calif., and passersby stopped to inspect the scene.

“I can’t tell if there is someone in there,” one witness says in the video. Another asks about the proximity of a fire hose nearby and a third says the car “might blow up.”

Paul Walker Autopsy Delayed, Body Unidentifiable

Paul and Roger Rodas, 38, took a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT for a drive during a fundraising event for the Philippines held by Paul’s foundation, Reach Out Worldwide, and Paul said they would be back in five minutes. During the drive, Roger, who was behind the wheel, may have lost control of the car and struck several trees.

“[The car] was engulfed in flames,” eyewitness and friend Antonio Holmes said. “There was nothing. They were trapped. Employees, friends of the shop. We tried. We tried.”

Paul and Roger, Paul’s friend and the CEO of Always Evolving, were both pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Paul was reportedly unable to escape the Porsche as it violently burst into flames. As a result, the 40-year-old actor’s body was rendered nearly unidentifiable, according to TMZ. Roger’s body is reportedly also unrecognizable.

It’s just heartbreaking to have lost two young men so suddenly, and to see the severity of the accident in the video only makes things worse.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Paul and Roger’s friends and family during this difficult time.

No, don’t keep filming and try and help. No one wants to see a human being burnt to death. By the time that car arrived and filmed, Paul was dead.
