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."

THIS IS ABSURD! STOP CELEBRATING AND "SOUPING" UP PAUL WALKER!! HE WAS A LATTER-DAY SAINT WHO, UNFORTUNATELY LIKE MANY OF THE MEN THAT GROW UP IN LDS CHURCHES, HAD PURSUED, ESTABLISHED AND MAINTAINED A ROMANTIC AND SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH AN UNDERAGE GIRL, A 16-YEAR OLD JASMINE PILCHARD-GOSNELL. PAUL WAS 33 WHEN THEY BEGAN THEIR RELATIONSHIP. JASMINE SECRETLY LIVED WITH HIM, AND WAS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE HILL, BELOW FROM WHERE THE WRECK TOOK PLACE. SHE WAS THERE WAITING WITH ERIC & NUTE, & ROGER'S SON. MANY LATTER DAY SAINTS MEN HAVE THIS FIXATION WITH BEING WITH A YOUNG, PURE, UNEXPERIENCED GIRL. THAT WAY, THEY CAN CONTROL & USE THEM FOR THEIR OWN ANIMALISTIC & ILLICIT SEXUAL FANTASIES & EXPERIMENTATIONS. JUST SICK!

This is for all the people who have been posting such despicable, disgusting and just hateful things. You should be ashamed of yourselves! The man is gone who cares if he was a great looking guy and a great actor. He's was a HUMAN BEING!!! How do you say such disgusting things about anybody after they're Gone. He has a daughter that I pray to God doesn't read any of those posts or have anyone read it to her. I could just imagine how it would make her feel to hear people saying such things. I don't know any of you and probably never will but if you died tomorrow I would be just as disgusted if someone had wrote the same type of cruel comments about you. At the very least if you don't care about the fact that he's gone at least care about the fact that his daughter is not have some RESPECT and some DECENCY.

Life is a test my father always said. On his death bed he asked me if he was a good father. I said yes of course. He said that he's passed his test. You passed yours Paul. Your devotion to your family and daughter has said it all. You left your mark here and it'll be passed through generations. Have a safe trip Paul and we'll all miss you. Thank you by the way ;)
