How terrifying and horrific!
When Paul Walker and Roger Rodas’ car crashed on Saturday, people pulled over to see if they could help.
The footage once the firefighters got there was awful, but this is just shocking.
Two people stopped their vehicle and filmed the car on fire, then posted it on the internet.

If you were wondering who to thank for making the Fast film franchise continue for all of these years, that would be Universal Studios.
Since Paul Walker was in all but one of the flicks, they were deeply upset at his passing, like the rest of the world. Once it was confirmed that the blue-eyed actor was indeed in the fiery crash, the studio released a statement:
“All of us at Universal are heartbroken. Paul was truly one of the most beloved and respected members of our studio family for 14 years, and this loss is devastating to us, to everyone involved with the FAST AND FURIOUS films, and to countless fans. We send our deepest and most sincere condolences to Paul’s family.”
‘Heartbroken’ seems to be a word that everyone is using for how Walker’s passing has affected them, because he was just that special.
The studio was currently producing Fast & Furious 7, which was going to the United Arab Emirates in a month.

She’s such a studette!
Just a week after being photographed with her family for the first time, Adele is setting records.
As of last week, the singer’s album 21 became the first ever to sell 3 million digital copies! It’s sold 10,798,000 overall, making it the No. 13 best-selling album since 1991 on Nielsen SoundScan.
Adele is AH-Mayzing, so we’re thrilled that she’s getting this kind of recognition!
We're just waiting for that next album to drop now so she can shatter her own records!

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:
These are two guys who have been together since the beginning too!
Ludacris’ role in the Fast franchise has grown over the years, but he’s remembered Paul Walker from the start.
The actor slash rapper posted a pic of the iconic Fast cast (above), and said:
Before Roger Sterling was making advertisements, he was starring in them!
We’re sort of beside ourselves after watching Mad Men star John Slattery in an early acting gig from back in the day - a cheesy TV commercial for Sports Illustrated!
This 1980s blast from the past features John when he still had dark hair! He’s interested in getting a blooper VHS tape from a video rental store. So yeah, this is an old commercial!
Of course, in order to get this limited video, John is informed he just has to sign up for a subscription to SI! But if he orders today, he’ll also get an pin for the 1988 Seoul Olympics!

Even actors who hadn’t gotten a chance to work with Paul Walker for very long were touched by him in some way or another.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was one of these people! He joined the Fast family in 2011 with his role in Fast Five, which Walker was also in.
Since then, they made Fast & Furious 6, and were filming Fast & Furious 7.
In fact, the last pictures of the late actor on set were with The Rock (above)!
The actor was clearly upset over the tragic loss of Walker, and tweeted:
