SANTA CLARITA, California (AP) – Paul Walker, the star of the Fast & Furious movie series, died yesterday in a car crash that killed two people north of Los Angeles, his publicist said.
Ame Van Iden told the Associated Press that 40-year-old Walker died yesterday afternoon.
A statement on the actor’s facebook page said he was a passenger in a friend’s car, and that Walker was in the area to attend a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide.
“We … are stunned and saddened beyond belief by this news,” the statement said.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department said that deputies found a car engulfed in flames when they responded to a report of a collision in the community of Valencia. Two people who were found in the car were pronounced dead at the scene.
The Santa Clarita Signal reports a red Porsche crashed into a light pole and tree and burst into flames.
Walker was working on Fast & Furious 7 at the time of his death. He also starred in the suspense drama, Hours which is set for release this month.
