Paul Walker Dead at 40 - 'Fast & Furious' Star Dies in Car Crash

Paul Walker has died at the age of 40 after he was involved in a single-car accident and explosion on Saturday (November 30) in Southern California, according to TMZ.

The Fast and the Furious actor was in a Porsche when the driver lost control and slammed into a post or tree in Santa Clarita. The car then burst into flames. Paul and another person who was in the car were both killed.

It is not clear right now what caused the accident or who was behind the wheel.

Paul was in town to attend a car show to support the Philippines typhoon relief effort and he was taking friends out for drives in his new Porsche GT car. The crash happened during one of the test drives that afternoon.

Paul is survived by his 15-year-old daughter Meadow, who he had with a former girlfriend.

We send our condolences out to all of Paul‘s loved ones during this difficult time.

UPDATE: Read the statement released by Paul Walker‘s team confirming his death.

    PAUL WALKER IS ALIVE READ THIS SITE http://en.mediamass.net/people/paul-walker/deathhoax.html Paul Walker Death Hoax Dismissed Since Actor Is ‘Alive And Well’

    On Saturday (November 30) the actor’s reps officially confirmed that Paul Walker is not dead. “He joins the long list of celebrities who have been victimized by this hoax. He’s still alive and well, stop believing what you see on the Internet,” they said.

    Some fans have expressed anger at the fake report saying it was reckless, distressing and hurtful to fans of the much loved actor. Others say this shows his extreme popularity across the globe.

    Actor Paul Walker, the 40-year-old star of Universal Pictures’ “Fast and Furious” movie franchise, was killed in a single-car crash in California Saturday, according to a post on his official Facebook page.
    Walker was a passenger in a friend’s car while attending a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide, the post read. Both lost their lives.
    “Sadly I must confirm that Paul did pass away today in a car accident,” Walker’s representative Ame Van Iden told NBC News.

    @sowhat55: Can you be anymore stupid?
    I highly doubt that his 15 year old daughter, his family and friends have a great day today. This man was not only an actor he was also a normal man, a father, he had a family and also friends who are more than sad today. He was someone who cared about the people who needed help, he was a role model.

    Think about it when someone dies from YOUR family.

    He was a beautiful guy, amazing actor and he has a LOT of fans all around the world, which is a proof of his talent.
    God takes the best…
    My prayers go to his family, such a hard time for them now…
    It breaks my heart.

    Fruitfly Says:

    I love this guy in the Fast and Furious series (I’ve seen every one) so perhaps that’s why I’m suspicious of who was driving and wondering if this person “accidentally” ran into a tree or whether this person decided to check out and bring Paul along with him.

    It just seems surreal and unlikely/odd that he should die as a passenger in a single car accident with a tree.

    This is so shocking and sad. Fast and Furious won’t be the same without Paul. Sad for the F&F family. Sad for his beautiful daughter, family and friends. A guy with good heart, charitable, pays it forward, talented and a good father. Gone too soon.

    Anyone ever saw Eight Below? That’s where I first saw his acting. Amazing movie. People should rent it.

    I am always sad... Says:

    When a person dies too young and/or by something unnatural like a car crash and/or other tragedy. I didn’t get start watching any of his F&F movies until last year. Then I watched them all and have been looking forward to the next one. Walker really seemed like such a beautiful person with a kind spirit. He was an actor, but he was also more like a regular guy. He didn’t seem to take himself too seriously. Prayers go out for his family and friends. God’s comfort and peace.
