Paul Walker Crash Video: Does it Show Escape Attempt?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

A close examination of the fatal Paul Walker crash video showing the Porsche engulfed in flames reveals a shadowy image appearing to flail.

As a result, speculation is swirling the image, seen roughly 23 seconds into the video, is the actor trying in vain to escape the motorized death trap.

But does the video really show that? Or anything conclusive?

Law enforcement sources investigating Paul Walker's cause of death say that the actor and his friend Roger Rodas never got out of their seats.

Investigators are confident that driver Roger absolutely didn't move and was killed on impact, whereas Paul died of thermal and traumatic injuries.

Thus, the rumor that he's still trying to get out in the video.

Upon further examination, however, police sources say the image seen in video shot right after the crash is not Walker and not an escape attempt.

As for what the image really is? Officials have watched the video, and based on evidence from the site, it appears to be a part of the car's roof burning.

Sources say that based on photos of the wreck, Paul's body was pinned in an area of the car that makes it clear he couldn't have been flailing outside it.

Also, based on the injuries he suffered, investigators think Paul died very quickly after impact, and therefore it's impossible that this is Walker.

It's not clear how long after impact the crash video starts, but clearly more than a few seconds, which is likely all it took for Walker to pass away.

That's fortunate in the sense that at least the 40-year-old star didn't suffer as he might have had he survived half a minute in that towering inferno.

His fans, family and colleagues, of course, suffered an immeasurable loss. Vin Diesel, Tyrese and Paul's father have all given touching tributes.

I don't want to sound like a dick, but this accident was not inevitable. Speeding results in an accident like this, even if you are a skilled driver and know what the fuck you're doing. I hate ANYONE had to die of something like this. Ryan Dunn died in a similar way but only he was drinking and speeding. Shit happens. People die like this almost everyday in America due to speeding and uncontrollable driving. Some mistakes are just not worth your life. Let that be a lesson learned for everyone. R.I.P. Paul Walker.
