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 really enjoyed many of Paul Walker's movies, especially "The Fast and the Furious" series. I'll admit one of my biggest movie wishes was for him to co-star in a movie with Anne Hathaway. I really believe they would've made a great pair: two fun-loving, free-spirited, adventurous personalities. Sad to say that it won't happen now. With that aside, Paul was a well-liked and respected actor and person. My condolences go out to Paul's family and loved ones.

Meme pas envie d'écrire en anglais, vous me dégoutez, les infos suffisent non? vous avez besoin de faire les vautours de l'info? de montrer ce film? ce n'est pas de l'info, du voyeurisme, et ces minables avec leurs téléphones devraient être punis.

It is hard to beleive and so sad to receive such a bad news! More than an actor, he was a man with so much love to give and near of those with difficulties. I used to see him in the movie. but his dead touches me from the bottom of my heart ! Rest in peace Paul Walker! I'll be missing you in Fast in furious!
