Just when you think that things can’t possibly get anymore tragic, they do.

We’re still in complete shock over the loss of Paul Walker, but this bit of news put us over the top.

The actor and his race car driver friend Roger Rodas were together in the Porsche, when it slammed into a tree while Roger was driving.

They’d been at a charity event, and as soon as the car exploded, people came running over to the scene.

One of those people was Rodas’ eight-year-old son!

An eyewitness, Jim Torp, described the grisly scene as the boy tried to help:

“I ran over afterwards, I was trying to find Roger’s son. I found out his son had jumped the fence and gone over, he was trying to get his dad out. Paul Walker’s best friend was trying to get Paul out of the car while it was still on fire … he was trying to save his friend … there was nothing he could do… He lived his life and he died fast and furious today. He loved speed, he loved cars, and he had to die this way. He died in a very fast car with his friend.”

Tears!!! So many tears!!!

Another friend, Antonio Holmes, talked about what went on, and explained:

“It’s a little difficult to know what it was. Someone called it in and said it was a vehicle fire. We all ran around and jumped in cars and grabbed fire extinguishers and immediately went to the vehicle. It was engulfed in flames. There was nothing. They were trapped. Employees, friends of the shop. We tried. We tried. We went through fire extinguishers.”

It all happened so fast, that we’re sure there was not much anyone could do.

Walker also has a 15-year-old daughter, Meadow, but it doesn’t appear that she was there. Thank goodness!!!

Hopefully Rodas’ son is able to only focus on the happy memories with his dad, and not those last moments.

    Unless a bear was on the scene, it wasn't "grizzly."

    I'm quite sure it was grisly, however, and horrifying for the friends and family.

    Do you think we could not pull the kids into this? It's horrible enough without exposing the victim's kids to the media scrutiny!

    My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do,,,WWW.Rush64.ℂOM
