Paul Walker dies: Car Crash photo shocking, unsettling

Paul Walker died Saturday and the car crash photo shows the violence of the death scene. Walker passed away in a horrific car accident after he and friend/business partner, Roger Rodas, went for a joyride in an exotic car in Valencia, Calif. Death photos on social media are said to be doctored and should be ignored, according to several news sources.

The Paul Walker car crash photo in circulation shows the "Fast and Furious" actor on a table with violent lacerations in his face and large chunks of flesh missing from his lower extremity. While the images bear a close resemblance to the late actor, it is not him, as evidenced from a Dec. 1 TMZ story, which said Walker's autopsy will be delayed.

Doctors say the bodies of Paul Walker and Roger Rodas were so badly burned that their corpses were "unidentifiable." Therefore, dental records and other means will be used to make proper identification. Further, this rules out the authenticity of one post-crash photo (Warning: Graphic) here, that is posted on the Internet.

Another Paul Walker car crash photo (in this image) shows the wreckage hours after the 2005 Porsche GT slammed into a tree at Rye Canyon Loop and Kelly Parkway and exploded.

Still, in this photo, just moments after the fiery car crash, it shows the chaos and raw emotion from friends and first responders trying to douse the burning inferno.

Sources say friends at a charity event nearby that Walker and Rodas hosted, arrived on the scene moments after the crash and tried frantically to assist. And at one point, as the picture shows, a police officer is shown wrestling away an unnamed friend. Reportedly, in the heat of the moment, one of Walker's friends punched a firefighter, but was not charged, all things considered.

Friends and fans from around the world have sent their condolences to Walker's family after his death. "Fast and Furious" co-star, Tyrese Gibson showed up at a makeshift memorial at the crash site and broke down. He and Walker were close friends off the set.
