Hollywood has lost a great actor. Paul Walker, most famous for his role as Brian O'Conner in the "The Fast And The Furious" franchise, died on Saturday, Nov. 30 after he was involved in a car accident in Santa Clarita, California. He was a passenger in a Porsche when the driver lost control of the vehicle and slammed into a post. The car burst into flames, taking the lives of the actor and his friend, identified as Roger Rodas, the CEO of Always Evolving, a performance shop for high end vehicles owned by Walker, located in Valencia. The horrible news was confirmed by his team via the actor's official Twitter and Facebook accounts.
"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"
After the news broke, entrepreneur Bill Towsend, an attendee at the charity event, posted on his Facebook page one of the last pictures taken of Paul Walker. He captioned it with the following message: "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 wrote.
"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."
Not too long after, another photo of Paul about to get in his new Porsche Carrera GT, which Rodas was driving, surfaced online. It is believed that is the last picture taken of the actor before the tragic accident occurred. Some reports claim he had just bought the car and was allowing friends to test drive it. A video that shows the scene of the accident is also making rounds online. YouTube user Kyle Cox posted it before knowing Paul Walker was involved.
