[Confirmed] Paul Walker killed in Porsche crash.

Recommended Posts

Paul Walker -- best known for his role in "The Fast and the Furious" movies -- died Saturday afternoon after a single-car accident and explosion in Southern California ... TMZ has learned.

 

The accident happened in Santa Clarita -- north of Los Angeles -- and according to multiple sources connected to Paul ... the actor was in a Porsche when the driver somehow lost control and slammed into a post or a tree ... and then the car burst into flames.

 

Several of our sources -- some who are still at the scene of the accident -- tell us Paul and another person in the car were killed. Law enforcement is still on the scene, and we're told the L.A. County Coroner's Office is on the way.

Paul was 40 years old.

I got an aunt in Santa Clarita that confirms that it was indeed a Porsche involved in the wreck.

Just read the article. It seems kinda silly how the fact he was in the Fast & Furious and he happens to die in a fiery car wreck. I don't think cars just randomly explode whenever they hit poles/trees, though, so there might be some fishy stuff.

Yesterday there was a Facebook page filled with condolences for him, a day later he really dies. So sad.. I still hope this is some sick HOAX to be honest.

If its a hoax, why would they destroy a real Porsche Carrera GT for it? I'm convinced its real, unfortunately. :cry: R.I.P

I don't think it's a fake. I'm looking at his Facebook page now and there was confirmation made a few minutes ago.

It can be true. Remember, the same thing happened to Ryan Dunn. He hit a tree at over 80 mph and it bursted into flames instantly. Oddly enough, he was driving a Porsche as well.

This is the actual news article regarding the car crash: http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2013/11/30/2-dead-in-santa-clarita-fiery-car-crash/

 

It says that the victims are unidentified, so no one really knows who died yet. Besides, there was a hoax about his death yesterday as well so I think it's fake but if not, then rest in peace Mr. Walker.

 

edit- Never mind, just saw his facebook page to see that it is in fact confirmed. Absolutely tragic (and also ironic) way to go. Rest in peace.

You know its like an exaggeration, they always say that. What really happens is it crashes and instantly bursts into flames, not literally explodes. I've seen it happen numerous times in videos.

Do Porches have a history of this, like what Toyota did with those break things a few years ago?

Thread title changed. Now we know it's true this is such sad news and a terribly ironic way to die after all he's done with the Fast & the Furious movies.

His website seems to be down as well. There's probably a homage being added to it. :cry:

Killed during a charity event whilst in the passenger seat of a friend's car. This keeps getting sadder by the minute.

This is really sad, he has definitely been one of my favourite actors of recent times. He didn't deserve to die, it is so terrible that people like this are taken from the world in such stupid accidents.

 

R.I.P. Paul Walker and my condolences to his family and any other fans he had out there.

The car, or at least what's left of it.

Doubt it, filming a movie with a lot of special effects and the likes usually takes around 6 months if not longer. So he will probably also die in the movie. Can't imagine what that must be like for his wife/girlfriend and his kid..

Even if the car didn't lit on fire, the crash would have been fatal, the Carrera GT is only fitted with dual stage frontal airbags. The blow to the head from the tree is an instant death.

 

I hope it wasn't a painful way to go, as bad as it may sound, no one deserves this fate.
