Paul Walker was a passenger in the car accident that took his life…
Paul Walker Was Passenger In Porsche Accident
Via TMZ reports:
Paul’s rep just released a statement about his death, and says “He was a passenger in a friend’s car, in which both lost their lives.” Witnesses on the scene originally said they thought the car was Paul’s … but have since confirmed it was not.
The rep added that Paul was “attending a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide.”
Paul Walker — best known for his role in “The Fast and the Furious” movies — died Saturday afternoon after a single-car accident and explosion in Southern California … TMZ has learned.
The accident happened in Santa Clarita — north of Los Angeles — and Paul was the passenger in the two-seater Porsche Carrera GT when the driver somehow lost control and slammed into a post or a tree … and the car burst into flames.
Several of our sources — some of whom were at the scene of the accident — tell us a friend of Paul’s was driving and was also killed in the fiery wreck.
At this point, it’s unclear what caused the accident, but cops have said it appears speed played a major factor.
Paul was 40 years old. He leaves behind a 15-year-old daughter named Meadow.
Sources close to Paul tell us he was in Santa Clarita for a car show to support the Philippines typhoon relief effort — and several of his friends were at the event … and the accident happened very near to the event.
A motivational speaker may have the last picture of Paul Walker alive.
When early word had spread that the star of Fast and Furious had died Saturday, Bill Townsend posted this picture on Facebook and this message:
Via Rumor Fix reports:
“The early news reports that Paul Walker has died. I was just with him no more than 2 or 3 hours ago. Talking cars, he was so happy seeing all his friends get together to look at the cars. I hope it wasn’t him in the wreck, but if it was, he would have passed doing something he loved, which is driving cars. The world lost an angel in Paul. He dedicated so much of his life to helping disadvantaged kids and people who are in need, with his charity recently assisting those in the tornadoes in the Midwest and the trauma in the Philippines. Just today we had hundreds of toys donated for kids, all apart of Paul’s charity. If this sad news indeed true I’m going to do whatever I can to keep Pauls goals for the charity alive.”
Please keep the entire Walker family in your prayers.
