Fast And Furious star Paul Walker died yesterday after a car accident in Santa Clarita, California. Walker, 40, was a passenger in a Porsche Carrera GT that collided with a pole and caused an explosion. Walker and the driver, Roger Rodas, were both pronounced dead at the scene.
Not only was Paul Walker a actor, he was a true automotive enthusiast, father, charitable celebrity, and an all-around down-to-earth guy. Prior to Saturday’s crash, Walker was taking part in a charity event just outside of Los Angeles for his organization to raise money for the Philippines typhoon relief effort.
He was loved by many.
