Paul Walker Crash Video: Security Camera Shows Massive Explosion

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The high speed car crash in which Roger Rodas and Paul Walker died Saturday caused a huge explosion and towering inferno that could be seen for miles.

A nearby security camera captured the precise moment of impact.

It's not particularly clear or close by, but the imagery is unmistakable.

The surveillance footage was recorded by a rooftop camera in an industrial park situated near the crash site in Santa Clarita, Calif., north of Los Angeles.

First posted by TMZ, the clip shows the initial collision (on the right of the screen) which caused the Porsche driven by Rodas to explode into flames.

Moments later, a second, larger blast extends outward and upward.

It does not appear that there are any cars either immediately in front of or behind the Porsche at the time of the crash that killed Walker and Rodas.

Police believe the Porsche may have been involved in a high-speed street race before the accident, but no other cars may suggest the opposite.

The investigation into the death of the 40-year-old actor is ongoing.
