Did I mention holy shit? Paul Walker, best known as the star of The Fast and the Furious franchise, has died in a fiery car crash today at age 40.
Details are sparse but it seems
that he was driving that he and a friend were leaving an event in a Porsche in Valencia, California, and the driver lost control. The car struck a light pole and a tree and caught fire. Both Walker and a passenger were pronounced dead at the scene.
This was confirmed by his official Twitter:
