We just hate to write about things like that…
Paul Walker has passed away in a horrible car crash in Santa Clarita on November 30.
Paul has been passenger in a Porsche driven by his friend Roger Rodas (owner of a car customization shop in Santa Clarita) who also lost his life in the tragic accident.
Paul and Roger had raced cars together in the Pirelli World Challenge series already and took the race car leaving the Reach Out Worldwide charity event in Los Angeles.
Apparently Roger lost control over the Porsche Carrera GT at high speed and crashed into a light pole and tree which lead to the car burst into flames with the two men still inside.
Paul Walker‘s rep released following statement following the sad accident:
“It is with a truly heavy heart that we must confirm that Paul Walker passed away today in a tragic car accident while attending a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide. He was a passenger in a friend’s car, in which both lost their lives. We appreciate your patience as we too are stunned and saddened beyond belief by this news. Thank you for keeping his family and friends in your prayers during this very difficult time. We will do our best to keep you apprised on where to send condolences. – #TeamPW”
The Fast And The Furious actor was only 40 years old and what makes matters worse, he’s leaving behind his 15-year-old-daughter Meadow Rain Walker.
The news of Paul’s tragic passing made fellow celebrity friends expressing their sadness on Twitter:
