Paul Walker

Dead at 40

In Fiery Car Crash

11/30/2013 5:50 PM PST UPDATED: 11/30/2013 9:48 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Paul Walker -- best known for his role in "The Fast and the Furious" movies -- died Saturday afternoon after a single-car accident and explosion in Southern California ... TMZ has learned.

The accident happened in Santa Clarita -- north of Los Angeles -- and Paul was the passenger in the two-seater Porsche Carrera GT when the driver somehow lost control and slammed into a post or a tree ... and the car burst into flames.

Several of our sources -- some of whom were at the scene of the accident -- tell us a friend of Paul's was driving and was also killed in the fiery wreck.

Cops say speed clearly played a major factor in the accident, but an exact cause has not been determined yet.

Paul was 40 years old. He leaves behind a 15-year-old daughter named Meadow.

Paul's rep tells us he was in Santa Clarita for a car show -- organized by Paul and his charitable organization Reach Out Worldwide -- to support the Philippines typhoon relief effort.

Several of his friends were attending the event ... which was very near to where the deadly accident happened.

One of Paul's friends talked to a TMZ photographer ... describing the scene ... and his efforts to save Paul from the burning car.

Paul took a pic with a fan at the event earlier on Saturday, and the guy posted it ... noting how happy Walker was just hours before the crash.

The fan added, "The world lost an angel in Paul. He dedicated so much of his life to helping disadvantaged kids and people who are in need. I'm gonna do whatever I can to keep Paul's goals for the charity alive."

I never saw his movies, and I don't really know who he was. but this is still very sad. He was way too young to die and my thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Knowing that he was about to attend a charity event, make me think he was a good guy. I really hope this was not another case of the paparazzi chasing someone to their death.

He was always doing good, helping kids in charities and acting as a Hollywood role model, and then some test drive car at his charity event hits a pole and blows up. Sounds like Andrew Breitbart in his Mercedes that blew up. Maybe Paul was a threat to the Illuminati plans in Hollywood, so they arranged for him to be in a car that would lose control and somehow blow up.

Did you notice that at the end of Fast and Furious Four, all the characters who were the protagonists sat down together and said grace and thanks to God before having their meal? Those Fast and Furious movies had a positive message of redemption and sticking to your guns to do the right thing. I think he paid a cop who was willing to work with ex cons in order to beat the system when it turned evil.

Maybe this is not the type of message the Illuminati wants out there. I don't see how a brand new Porsche would just explode from hitting a pole in a parking lot. There must have been a detonation device that went off on impact when the car went out of control. Maybe the car was remote controlled to malfunction electronically and then that caused it to hit the pole and blow up.

All cars are run on microchips now. Those can likely be accessed remotely by whoever has the keys and knowledge to their operation.

So it was reported on Friday night that Paul died in a crash and than his PR called it a hoax, now its being reported that he got into a car accident tonight, almost 24 hours later??? Sounds suspicious and needs to be investigated. More than a coinicidence
