A witness to the car crash that killed actor Paul Walker and his friend, Roger Rodas, last November has put up the sunglasses the Fast & Furious star was allegedly wearing when he died for up for auction.
On the auction site BidAMI, the seller says he happened upon the sunglasses "in the ivy" near the scene of the crash, after initially assisting to put out the fire. He also found some residual debris which he kept "for memorandum." He provides pictures of the "soiled Maui Jim sunglasses," which appear to match the pair Walker was spotted wearing in a fan photo the actor took shortly before the crash.
He claims that at the time, he didn't know whom the glasses belonged to.
BidAMI says it is donating a portion of the proceeds to SavingAmericasMustangs.org, in "acknowledgement of Paul Walker's immeasurable charitable contributions."
Bidding for the sunglasses is now up to $1,729.
Walker and Rodas died last November 30 when the Porsche Rodas was driving lost control and hit a light post and a tree.
