That looks like it must have been a pretty fast collision for the car to crash and burn like it did.

Anybody know what the car was that they were in?
All i read was red Porsche?

RIP to him and maybe a lesson to us boy racers who go a bit silly at times.
(including myself).

There is Video footage of the burning wreck filmed by some of the first on the scene.

I won't post it up the video but you can find it on liveleak.com if you desire to see it. Looks like there were high speeds involved as there are car parts everywhere.

The car is folded in half dude, the rear wheels are pointing 90 degrees away from the fronts and it looks like it impacted the pole/tree right in the pass door, hopefully instant for both of them.

The Driver his business partner was a "racing driver" apparently.Lets just be grateful he hit a telegraph pole and not a school bus.
Sad loss of young lives.Lets not forget I doubt they were adhering to the speed limit.Is it ok for clebs to act this way, without criticism?

It was a smallish tree they hit so I don't know why the car snapped in half, so much for a carbon fibre cell. Dont know Normally a tree of that size would of snapped.

There is debris all over the road so my guess is that the tree was the last thing it hit but not the first.

I thought that myself but then also thought if they'd hit something before it would of scrubbed enough speed of not to snap the car and the debris scattered could just of come from the tree impact anyway, there is also a high kerb that would of damaged the car before impact.

Modern "Hypercars" constructed with a carbon chassis are generally constructed in either 2 or 3 pieces, and are actually designed to break apart with a harsh impact, separating the driver and the cockpit survival cell from the engine block etc..
This is illustrated in the photo of the Enzo mentioned earlier in the post, the entire rear end of the car is separated from the cockpit section.
I could be totally wrong but I guess the Carrera GT is constructed in a similar sectional way.
The death of Paul Walker is a tragic loss, he seemed to be a genuinely nice guy.
Perhaps his untimely death and the tragic manner in which he died will act as a warning to the boy racer culture that his films promoted.

A orsche is a wonderful thing.As is a Smith & Wesson 45.In the wrong hands they can be lethal.
Im slighlty drunk, perterbed and irritated that the irresposible driver of this car, and his passenger, are being held up as some kind of heros, because they acted like idiots, with scant disregard for other road users.
Porsches dont kill People.Idiots with Porsches do.
