A photo captured Fast and Furious star Paul Walker in the passenger seat, before the doomed Porsche Carrera pulled away.
Just a few fast and furious moments after the photo was taken, the fire rescue dispatch from the accident scene released the heartbreaking news that Paul Walker and his friend had been killed, “We have confirmed two D.O.A.. Again, confirmed two fatalities.”
The flat bed truck carrying the mangled wreckage stopped at a traffic light about a mile and a half from the scene of the crash. Police say a car pulled up behind it, from which a man jumped out, grabbed a piece of the wreckage, and then drove off at high speed.
Eighteen-year-old Jameson Witty was arrested after he posted pictures of a section of the roof on his Instagram page with the foolhardy caption “Piece of Paul Walkers car, took it off a tow truck at a stop light.”
Witty is charged with felony grand theft and tampering with evidence.
At the crash site, INSIDE EDITION found more fans searching an embankment for pieces of wreckage.
