3 min before the crash

This accident is a important example that without proper tires even sports luxury cars aren't safe.
The Carrera GT is powered by a 5.7 litre V10 engine producing 612 hp (450 kW), whereas the original concept car featured a 5.5 litre version rated at 558 hp (416 kW).
Porsche claimed the car would accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.5 seconds with a maximum speed of 330 km/h (205 mph). A road test in June 2004 by Car and Driver showed that the car can accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.5 seconds.
Don't get us wrong, we will not steer this article in a direction that the luxury car is to blame or what could have or should of happened.
We all know that speed killed both drivers, not the Porsche sports car and both the driver and his companion are the only one to blame for this horrific car accident. But there is a much bigger issue here, concerning all of us.
Based on the reaction of the guys recording those last few moments of Paul Walker and his friend: us humans in general are really selfish and instead of doing a selfless act and helping a person burning from a crash, the first thing that comes to mind is "oh let's drive away, it might explode !" like WTF??!
Put yourself in that situation how would you feel if you were the one burning to death and someone just drove away to save their car..?!.. R.I.P to them both.

paul walker On the topic of cars exploding - Outside of Hollywood, cars never explode. They can catch fire, for the obvious reasons that they’re filled up with gasoline.
If the fuel tank or the fuel lines rupture, the gasoline can come into contact with the hot engine or other spark source, and ignite. But not explode.
At 1:33, it seems as if Paul, if not him it was his friend stumbling out the car. But that kid just watched and ran. What if you saw someone alive coming out of a car crash, would try to save them? Or at least go and see if something can be done.
Let that sink for a moment. Many say that the impact of the car was so severe they the both passengers died instantly upon impact.
It’s too late for Paul and his companion, lets think a bit abstract and steer away of Paul Walker's car accident but how would you react in such a situation, if you see a car wreck before you?
Would you try to help or just save yourself and run as far as possible and save your precious sports cars ?
