Yesterday, millions across the world were taken aback by the sudden loss of ‘The Fast and Furious’ star, Paul Walker. He suffered an untimely death when he was killed in a single-car crash.

According to the Los Angeles Fire Department, his red Porsche Carrera GT crashed into a light standard on Hercules St. near Constellation Rd. in the Rye Canyon Business Park district of Santa Clarita, CA.

The driver lost control of the vehicle, and it immediately went up into flames and exploded.

Walker and an unidentified person were said to be taking the car out for a joyride. Fox News reports that the driver of the vehicle was Walker’s close friend, Roger Rodas. Rodas was a former race car driver and close friend to Walker. He was in town for a car show in support of the Typhoon Haiyan relief effort at the time of the accident.

While hearing and reading the story is tumultuous enough, now the video of the fiery crash has hit the Web. Late yesterday evening, ChiMotorTrend uploaded the grueling video. The 56-second starts right after the vehicle’s impact with the light standard. It goes on to capture vehicle gradually going up in flames.

A number of spectators weighed in with the Santa Clarita Valley Signal with their experiences during the fatal crash. “We all ran around and jumped in cars and grabbed fire extinguishers and immediately went to the vehicle,” Antonio Holmes, a friend of Walker, told the Valley Signal. “It was engulfed in flames. There was nothing. They were trapped. Employees, friends of the shop. We tried. We tried. We went through fire extinguishers.”

The LA County Coroner’s Department is currently investigating the cause of the accident. No further information has been released as of yet. However, an array of pictures have slowly begun to popular on the Web. Most of the images capture the unidentifiable Porsche in flames, and the minimal remains of it.

    So sad two wonderful fathers and both passionate about their charity. Hearing that the event was hugely successful and that Paul was so happy by everyone’s generosity is so nice to know. I hope his family and friends can find some peace knowing that his last day here was a very happy one surrounded by friends and loved ones. His was an angel on earth and now is one with God.

    This is incredibly sad. I hope all those who are calling for a DUI investigation are proven wrong. Paul Walker seemed liked a real person, not a spotlight addicted celebrity.

    Very sad. Very very sad. People that obey speed limits and the road are less likely to get into an “accident.” People who speed have higher risk of getting into motor vehicle collision. People who speed excessively may not even live the next day. The pictures tell all. This vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed that could not handle the the road. Let this be a reminder to obey road rules and speed.

      Wow are you more sad about their death or more concerned with peoples driving habits. Your post is sad.

      • Gentleone

        Both, but you cant’ grieve too much. You can only learn from it. Your post, needs to be about the article, not about me. How heartless are you?
