Apparently let his unidentified buddy drive his new Porsche GT around 3:30 PM on 11/30 and they lost control (presumably at a very high speed) and crashed into a tree. The car exploded and both were dead when the authorities arrived.

Sad story. RIP Paul Walker :angel2:

Wow! :eek:

Never saw any of the F&F movies.

What a shame. Just goes to show you that you've GOT to respect those exotics, or any car for that matter. They'll kill you in a heartbeat if not driven sanely (safely).

Live fast ... die young ... :zdunno:

Yes, I realize he wasn't the one driving. Damn shame for him ...

My sister told me about it this afternoon. It sucks.

Years ago I remember seeing a TV show where James Dean's accident was modeled on a computer.

They found out he was going 55 MPH in the Porsche when the other driver ran the stop sign IIRC.

I am glad it was a tree they hit instead of an innocent pedestrian or vehicle.

I saw more coverage of this on the news tonight. It showed a 45 MPH speed limit sign laying flat in the median that they took out on their way to the tree.

Hard to get the third part of that old saying when:

My God are you sure that was a car?
...Happens on the way to part 2. (Dying young...)

This will be a closed casket service, for sure; there was no "Good-looking-Corpse" in this case.

A bit To fast & To Furious there on city streets.
That's the sad part. On the good side, at least there wasn't an innocent bystander dead.

He was somewhat entertaining in the F&F movies. It is acting after all. Bastard got to make out with Eva Mendez!!!!

How could you not be jealous of Paul, he got to feel this up in one of them, Part II I think it was

Lol you got that right! I'll quote this image so everyone can see it again... :D


I saw a quote by Paul Walker saying, "If one day the speed kills me do not cry because I was smiling." Seems like I've heard that before.. but still cool.

Nice body on her.

You know, I feel bad for the guy. He was just the passenger and the driver was probably speeding where he shouldn't have been. Hope it’s a lesson for a lot of speedsters and all drivers. If you want to go fast take it to the track and not in a school zone, residential street or highway. Could have been a lot worse with a bystander killed.

Mid-engined Porsche too. So much for the rear-engined 911s being the deadliest layout.

Hey if I could make that awful Point Break knockoff and be successful I'd be happy to end it all at 40:tongue:

From what I've heard, Paul Walker was an excellent driver and enthusiast. If he were driving the car he likely would be alive and well. It's a horrible situation all around. Just last night a young kid from my town and his girlfriend died when he flipped his Mustang into the woods. People need to start respecting their vehicles.

Fixed.

The guy driving was supposed to be a professional driver as well. Driving skill doesn't win against obstacles on and along public roads.
Absolutely I agree. Had his friend been on a track he'd probably be alive too. I'm saying walker probably has the skill to know not to drive like that on the street in the first place.
