Video: Dramatic surveillance footage of Paul Walker crash

An amateur videographer took some footage after the crash, (shown at left) but it does not compares to the surveillance footage of the actual impact, even though it was shot from behind a stand of trees. The following surveillance footage, which shows the extreme violence of the crash, would seem to confirm the theory that speed was a factor.
