Video Captures Paul Walker Crash And Its Explosive Aftermath
The crash that killed Paul Walker and his friend Roger Rodas—and its explosive aftermath—was captured on security video.
TMZ got a copy of the video taken from a nearby rooftop camera in the industrial area in Valencia. It's not an up-close video, but you can make out the moment of the crash through some trees. Moments later, there's a huge explosion, causing an inferno that could be seen for miles around.
There doesn't seem to be any cars directly in front of or behind the Porsche. That could help investigators rule out the theory that the pair had been drag-racing before they crashed. Authorities, however, have said that speed was a likely factor.
