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.

    Terrible way for his rep team to spread the news. They should’ve been the first ones confirming/reporting the death. And I hate how reps confirm everything via twitter – their clients deserve better then that. RIP Paul. How very sad.

    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.

    @Mrs. Gaston:

    I love this man, I cant stop crying. I am praying for his soul, i know God has him in his glory. Sometimes you feel something for someone you never met, perhaps I knew him in another life who knows but the sadness I feel for him right now is unmesureable.

  • Pa

    Omg i´m so in shock i still can´t believe it. My prayers go out to his family and friends. We will miss you so much Paul .RIP

  • Sarah

    Gone so soon, may his soul rest in peace. It’s such a sad sad day.

  • BTGG

    @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.

  • Maya

    OMG – I can’t believe it!!! So horrible and so sad! :’(

  • Vicky

    Looks to suspicious to me. First the news of an hoax, then the real things happens

    BUT, he was such a nice guy.He was like other celebrities in which use PR stunts to promote their films. This guy was just genuine..

    He was one of a kind.

  • breezedash

    Such a terrible news. It’s very sad. I can’t express how shocked I am…
    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.
    Rest in peace Paul

    So sad!love and light to his family!

  • sad

    @Susan: I..dont..,!

  • maela

    Light a candle for him to find his way. It is the least we can do for someone who shared his light with us during his life.

  • maria

    So young. So tragic. My prayers and heart go out to his family and friends.

  • Fruitfly

    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.

  • Rachel

    This is so sad.
    Rest in peace, Paul. :(

  • Anastasia

    That’s just horrible… RIP Paul. :’(

  • what the..

    and over on twitter, morons are tweeting a photoshopped “death” pic of him…he died in a fiery car crash and the coroner has not even been able to definitively identify the bodies but the morons on twitter believe that pic is really him..SMH…..Rest in peace Paul.

  • jon inwood

    @Mrs. Gaston: It’s hard to believe that this is true. Mr Walker was such a talented actor and a very sexy man.

  • Maria

    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.

  • From Paris with Love

    I have no words :’(

  • Vloyalist
