Paul Walker, Fast and the Furious star, dies in car crash

Paul Walker, best known for his role in the The Fast and the Furious movies, is dead at 40.

His publicist Ame Van Iden said Walker died on Saturday afternoon.

The actor's representatives released a statement on his official Facebook Page:

"It is with a truly heavy heart that we must confirm that Paul Walker passed away today in a tragic car accident while attending a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide. He was a passenger in a friend's car, in which both lost their lives. We appreciate your patience as we too are stunned and saddened beyond belief by this news. Thank you for keeping his family and friends in your prayers during this very difficult time. We will do our best to keep you apprised on where to send condolences."

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department reported that both victims were pronounced dead at the scene.

Walker played Brian O'Conner in the popular Fast & Furious franchise. The seventh installment was currently in the process of filming at the time of the crash, according to IMDB.

He also starred in the suspense drama, Hours, which is due for release this month.

The actor reportedly died after a single-car accident and explosion in Santa Clarita, California, the website TMZ reported.

RIP Paul Walker.


I know he was popular for the Fast and Furious movies, but I thought he was great in Eight Below.

Very sad. Its pretty ironic that he dies in a car crash.

I guess Porsche and actors don't mix well.

Not trying to read too much into it but it does seem to appear that both cars that are involved in that video (other than his) are soupped up vehicles that sortof look like street racers..

RIP. From what I've read, he was a big-hearted guy who did a lot of hands-on work for charity. The photos of the burnt-out car wreck are damn nightmarish. I can't begin to imagine what it must be like for next-of-kin to have to see what was left of their loved ones.

The car Walker was riding in was a 610 horsepower $450k supercar, the other vehicle in the video looks like a $45k ricer (that's if its heavily modded, half that $ if its not). Also the Porsche Carerra GT's owner was a professional race car driver, which makes this all the more ironic.

Of course im only speculating and don't really know about the other car, or what happened. Despite what the movies tell us I highly doubt that Walker and his friend would waste their time racing a supercar against some average street guys, if that's what they were. Likely they just happened upon the scene after impact..business parks or industrial parks are race bait on weekends when nobody is around.

Probably just a very tragic and ironic accident.

not to be anymore gory.. I read they had to delay the autopsy because both bodies were unidentifiable.

Paul leaves behind a teenage daughter and the other guy left behind a 8 yr old son.

Asshole question, but Fast and Furious 7 wasn't quite finished shooting, right?
