Default R.I.P. Paul Walker!

R.I.P. Paul. The Fast & Furious star is no more.

Quote:
Fast And Furious star Paul Walker died earlier this evening after a car accident in Santa Clarita, California. Multiple reports indicate Walker, 40, was a passenger in a Porsche Carrera GT that collided with a pole and caused a fire. Walker and the driver were both pronounced dead at the scene.

Walker's management team - 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. - #TeamPW

Default ‘Fast and Furious’ Star Paul Walker Reported Dead in Car Crash :(

Woke up to read this saddening news:

Quote:
The “Fast and Furious” actor Paul Walker was reported to have died on Saturday after his Porsche crashed and exploded. TMZ cited “multiple sources connected to Paul” that the 40-year-old star lost control of the car and slammed into a post or tree, with the car bursting into flames after the impact. Walker is 40, and best known for starring multiple times in the “Fast and Furious” franchise.

Default RIP Paul Walker

Today afternoon, Fast and the Furious series start, Paul Walker (Brian O' Connor) passed away in a car crash in his red Porsche Carrera GT.
He was returning back home from an charity event of his association called Reach Out Worldwide.

The Fast and the Furious series will never be the same, he was one of the reasons why I started enjoying car related movies.
May God give strength to his family and friends to cope up with these difficult times.

Sad news, the man who fueled my passion for mods. is no more!
May god give him all support and he rests in peace. What an oxymoron though? Him dying in a car accident.

Yes, he will be replaced but it won't be the same when Vin Diesel will say "O'Conner" and that smile on Paul's face..
The 6'2 handsome bloke was my favourite followed by Hobbs in FNF.
RIP O'Conner.

Terribly shocking news. What a star he had been. Most complimentary partner ever for Vin Diesel. And his Solo of FF3 was also unforgettable. May his soul Be With God. While typing this, my heavy heart sinks down.
