According to initial reports, the Fast and the Furious actor was in a Porsche when the driver somehow lost control and then slammed into a post or a tree. The car then burst into flames. It is unclear who was driving the vehicle, but sources tell TMZ another person was also killed in the wreck.
The accident occurred in Santa Clarita, an area north of Los Angeles. Walker was reportedly at a car show in support of the Philippines typhoon relief effort and was taking pals out for drives in the new Porsche GT. Apparently the crash happened during one of those runs.
Our thoughts go out to Walker’s family, friends, and fans. Walker has a 15-year-old daughter named Meadow with an ex-girlfriend named Rebecca McBrain. Meadow reportedly moved from Hawaii to California a few years ago to be closer to him.
