Final Pictures Of Paul Walker Before His Death

Images have emerged showing Paul Walker smiling in the passenger seat of his friend's Porsche just moments before they smashed into a post and perished in a fiery crash. The 40-year-old actor was photographed leaving a charity fundraiser in Santa Clarita, California on November 30 with the window of the bright red Porsche Carerra GT rolled down. But just moments after leaving for the short ride with his friend and financial adviser, Roger Rodas, the vehicle crashed into a pole and tree before coming to a stop. Less than a minute later, the vehicle burst into flames - killing the beloved actor.

Destroyed: Just moments later, it smashed into a pole and after less than a minute, it burst into flames

The pictures emerged the day after Walker's remains were removed from the L.A. County Coroner's Office and taken to a local mortuary.Authorities say speed had been a factor in the crash and toxicology test results are still pending. They could take as long as six weeks. An autopsy concluded that Walker was killed by injuries from both the impact and the subsequent fire, and dispatch recordings revealed that firefighters noted he was 'DOA' when they got there. Rodas, 38, died from ‘multiple traumatic injuries’ before the car exploded in flames, according to the autopsy released by the Los Angeles County coroner's office.

Ahead of the crash, Walker was in Santa Clarita for a fundraiser his charity, Reach Out Worldwide, organized for victims of the recent Philippines typhoon. The event took place at Rodas' shop, and two stepped away for what was supposed to be a short drive in Rodas' car.

The limited-edition Porsche was previously owned by IndyCar driver Graham Rahal, who has said it could be difficult to drive.
Walker, the star of five of the six 'Fast & Furious' movies, was the face of the franchise and he was making the seventh film in the series when he died.

On Sunday, fans gathered near to the crash site for a massive memorial, which had been planned through social media, for the actor. Thousands came to pay their respects, placing flowers, candles and other tributes at the scene. Many arrived in cars built for speed, and the sounds of engines revving echoed close to where Walker and his friend died in the crash.

The memorial also coincided with news that the actor had planned to give up his life as a Hollywood actor to spend more time with his 15-year-old daughter, Meadow.
Meadow had recently moved from her home in Hawaii to live with Walker in Santa Barbara.

So sad!!!
