Paul Walker: 1973-2013. RIP.
As we wrap up the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, we unfortunately bring you some very sad news: actor Paul Walker, 40, star of the “Fast and Furious” film series, was killed yesterday in a car crash in California. Exact details are still coming in, but apparently Walker was a passenger in a Porsche Carrera GT being driven by a friend, who was also killed. The two were attending a charity event for Walker’s organization, Reach Out Worldwide, which has aided victims from the earthquake in Haiti to the recent typhoon in the Philippines.
Reports indicate that the driver of the Carrera GT somehow lost control and crashed into a pole. Below is video taken from the scene of the crash.
A fire immediately broke out and by the time rescue crews arrived, it was already too late. Details on the nature of the crash are still unknown, but a full investigation is already underway. Walker was currently filming "Fast and Furious 7" and the status of that movie is also likely up in the air. Our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of the victims.
