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.

    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.
