  • sowhat55

    nice to finally see some good news about a celebrity.

  • Karin

    Not sure one way or another if this true., but do find it odd that they contradict themselves above. They report “He was a passenger in a friend’s car” and “his Porsche GT car crashed into either a pole or tree and then exploded. It is not known right now who was behind the wheel “. Any one else find this strange?

  • Mirna

    I am deep sadness, rest in peace,we will missed you a lot .great actor .the condolence goes with his family .God bless you for all you do .

  • Ricardo

    R.I.P Paul Walker may you be up in heaven and wishing your family God Bless!!!

  • T

    @Karin: n contradictions – just 2 statements by 2 different sources

  • Ashley

    Once I saw his picture on the front page of yahoo I knew he was dead. I had a huge crush and loved him ever since I was a kid watching the football movie he was in Varsity Blues. So Sad:(
    May he rest in lead

  • Ashley

    @Ashley: Peace I meant May he rest in Peace

  • KC :)

    I’m still shocked…can’t believe it. May he rest in peace. Best wishes to his family…and to the family of the other guy (don’t know his name). RIP Paul Walker.


  • oz

    My breaks for his daughter. Such a terrible loss of such a bright light. R.I.P Paul.

  • Blaze

    Yea it’s strange…

  • Julie


    I thought that was weird also. It’s got to be one or the other and if the car exploded at impact, they would roughly still be in the seats they were at the time of impact. Maybe it was Paul’s car, but his friend was seen driving it and that’s why they don’t know who was driving when the accident occurred?

  • Doris McGriff


    What matters is that two people loss their lives, and their families and friends are hurting. May they both R.I.P. And may God help them all get through this very painful and confusing time. God bless them all!
