Paul Walker, best known for his role in the Fast and Furious movies, died in a car accident this morning. He was 40 years old.
The crash happened while Walker and his friend, who was the driver, were coming back from a charity event in Los Angeles. His friend apparently somehow lost control of his Porsche Carrera GT and slammed into a tree. The car immediately burst into flames according to witnesses. They were both killed at the fiery wreck.
This video was taken just seconds after the crash, showing the car wrapped around a tree and engulfed in flames.
Walker was attending a charity event for his organisation ‘Reach Out Worldwide’ to support the Philippines typhoon relief effort that morning.
The latest installment of the Fast and Furious franchise is currently in production. A part of the movie is even planned to be filmed in Abu Dhabi next year.
This video was posted as a graphic reminder of what could happen as a result of reckless driving. Just because a celebrity was involved does not mean everybody should forget about how this happened in the first place.
