Don't know how but I came across this video Caught On Cellphone: Aftermath Footage Of Car Accident That Actor "Paul Walker" Passed Away From

I don't know how this got posted, let alone why the guy ran instead of heading towards the car to try and help. Still seems like a lot of unanswered questions regarding what exactly happened...
Paul Walker wasn't the driver, he was a passenger. Roger Rodas, apparently a former or part-time race car driver, was driving the Porsche GT when it crashed.

The guy filming the video can't be faulted for running away "instead of heading towards the car to try and help." Did you not hear him say multiple times in the video that "it's gonna blow up?" Near the end of the video you can clearly hear something (maybe a tire?) explode. Whether the car would/could actually explode was unknown to the guy filming, he did nothing wrong. Not everyone is a first responder and not everyone is an expert in fire science, fire behavior, or how to respond to a burning vehicle.

Its a shame to see him go so young.

The local car community here in Queensland is organising a charity event for the foundation he started.

It will be a cruise up the highway prior to a meet we usually do.

So far there are 1,500 people that plan on attending.

Epic.

One man has been arrested and a second has agreed to surrender after authorities allege they stole parts from the Porsche that crashed in Santa Clarita on Saturday killing "Fast and Furious" star Paul Walker and another man.


The men allegedly stole parts of the vehicle as it was being towed away Saturday evening after the crash, Sheriff's Capt. Mike Parker said.

[Updated at 7:37 p.m.: In a press release, the Sheriff's Department said the alleged theft occurred while the Porsche was being towed away.

"A witness saw a male exit a vehicle that was following the tow truck. The male grabbed a piece of the wrecked Porsche off the tow truck bed. The male drove away with the stolen vehicle part. The tow truck driver reported the theft to the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station," the statement said.

Search warrants were served, and the Sheriff's Department found some of the parts at a home in Canyon Country. One suspect, 18-year old Jameson Witty, was arrested; a second man is expected to surrender.]

So on Sunday a local car group held a car event in memorial of Paul.

We had over 3,000 cars turn up.

It was incredible to see that many cars.
