In the dispatch call they placed upon reaching the tragic scene, responders to Saturday's Paul Walker crash made it obvious that he was dead immediately.
The first firefighters arrived less than three minutes after a 911 call alerted them, and one of their first communications was "two fatalities" ... and "DOA."
The first responders on the scene also informed the dispatcher right away that Walker's death was a "Code N" incident, in other words, a newsworthy event.

Despite reports that Walker attempted to escape the car, firefighters had no doubt Paul and his friend Roger Rodas, who was driving, died immediately.
