And here’s another “NOOOOOOOOOO” from me to echo along with all the other “NOOOOOOs” you’ve already heard about this shitty, shitty news. TMZ and everybody else reported and confirmed that Paul Walker and his friend both died in a car crash this afternoon in Santa Clarita, CA. Paul was only 40.
TMZ’s sources say that Paul’s friend was driving a Porsche Carrera GT at around 3:30 this afternoon when the driver lost control of the car and hit a tree or light post. The car burst into flames immediately. When firefighters and deputies arrived, the car was a fire ball and after they put it out, they found Paul and his friend inside. Paul’s Facebook confirmed the news:
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
TMZ originally said that Paul just bought the Porsche GT and was letting his friend take it for a ride, but they later heard that the car didn’t belong to Paul. Paul was in production for the 7th Fast & Furious movie.
Paul is survived by his 15-year-old daughter Meadow.
Well, this is just a whole lot of sad and I really didn’t know what to say, so I went to Michelle Rodriguez’s Twitter to see what she had to say since most of my thoughts are best expressed through hers, but she’s silent.
Rest in peace, Paul Walker.
