Shocked to read that Paul Walker met with fatal crash. May his soul rest in peace. The crash images are horrible, to say the least.

Rip Brian!
The good do die young, especially in show biz.


So now we'll probably see statham killing off the character in the franchise.

Ironic to see a character who portrayed a street boy-racer for more than half of his movies died like a real one. More so ironic is the fact that he wasn't even driving that car!

RIP.

Any idea what speed was the guy behind the wheel of that Porsche doing? The car it seems caught fire almost immediately.

R.I.P. Paul Walker. You will be missed.

The following video shows what looks like parts of car scattered across the road before it crashed into the pole. God only knows how it all happened.



Shocking & heartbreaking!!

The driver of the car was a racing car driver Roger Rodas who owns the tuning shop Always Evolving. Paul had a stake in that firm.

Goes to show even the best of drivers can get it wrong.

Yeah, the show biz will go on...
Sad news indeed, his character in Fast and furious is irreplaceable and so is he.
May God give his family strength to overcome.

RIP Paul Walker.
Was a fan of his effortless style. Hell! I got sneakers in blue and white to complete the look. Lived in the fast lane. Too bad he was called up on one ......

Very shocking news. At first I thought its hoax but when I saw its on his official fan page that's when I had to believe it. Fast and furious will never be the same without O'conner.

Looks like the car hit the pole sideways and split in half and the sparks from the pole might have ignited the fuel tank and caused the fire. No chance of survival for occupants :-(

R.I.P Paul Walker

Sad sad news. As an actor he was quite terrible but still FnF will never be the same without him.

Granny shiftin and not double clutchin like he should. Wish he lived his life a quarter of a mile at a time as Torreto said.

Oh man I loved that series, hope we can move on with Walkers absence.

I think he was awesome in She's all that and some of his other non FnF movies.

And that Team BHP is right in advocating to keep a rein on the accelerator and avoid driving/riding in a manner which will jeopardize one's own & others using the street as well.

RIP Brian O' Connor.
