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."

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 ;)

It's been a month now and I still can't believe he's gone forever. He was a great Actor and Person, I just watch his latest movie F&F 6. It made me sad to know I'll never see him in movies again, He will be missed greatly. R.I.P Paul and know your in my heart and mind always.

THATS THE TRIPPY THING ABOUT LIFE("TRIPPY", QUOTE FROM PULP FICTION), YOU REALLY HAVE NO CLUE WHEN THE END COMES OR IS COMING THAT IS JUST LIKE NONE OF US HAD NO CLUE WHEN OUR BEGINNING, WOULD BEGIN. IN BETWEEN, TRULY MATTERS. I MEAN, IT REALLY DOES. SO, IF SAD, TRY TO FIND SOME SENSE OF HAPPINESS OR SOMETHING TO BE HAPPY ABOUT BECAUSE, MONEY DOESNT SAVE US, NONE OF US FROM THE GRIM REAPER, SIMILAR TO THE MOVIE "FINAL DESTINATION" THE DAY BEFORE OUR LAST BREATH IS THE NEXT DAY, THE SECOND BEFORE OUR LAST BREATH IS THE NEXT SECOND AND WE CANT CONTROL IT. SEEING PAUL AND OTHERS WHO ARE GONE JUST REMINDS ME THAT, EVERYDAY IS A GIFT!!!! R.I.P PAUL AND TO ALL THOSE WHO ARE NO LONGER ALIVE AND TO THOSE WITH LIFE IN YOU, STOP STRESSING ON THINGS AND FIND SOME RAINBOW IN THE CLOUDS OF YOUR MIND AND PUSH FOR EVERYDAY SUNSHINE!!!! LGNM(LOVE.GOD.NOT.MONEY)
