The supercar that actor Paul Walker was in when he died may have been racing another vehicle when the fatal crash occurred. Police are investigating tip-offs from possible witnesses that the Porsche driver Roger Rodas, who was photographed getting into the car moments before the accident (bottom right), was in the middle of a street race at the time. Detectives are now appealing for anyone who may have video of the car to come forward as sources close to the investigation reveal high speed may have caused the crash.
