The fire that engulfed the Porsche carrying actor Paul Walker apparently did not erupt until a minute after the car clipped a light pole Saturday.
Based on security camera video obtained by CNN that shows black smoke starting to rise from the crash scene 60 seconds after it shows the light pole and a tree falling.
Could Walker and the other occupant in the car have made it out in those 60 seconds? That’s hard to tell.
The two may have died on impact when the car struck the light pole. The answer might be clearer when the coroner’s office releases its preliminary findings of the autopsies of the remains of two men.
