Fast and Furious Star Dies in Fast and Furious Car Accident
How unfortunate to die an ironic death: all the buzz is in how you died, not in that you died. With the case of Paul Walker, the actor famous for his movies about the underground racing scene, “The Fast in the Furious” series, that he died fast and furious in a Porsche driven by his friend, which lost control and crashed into a fireball, it seems the old adage “live by the sword, die by the sword” was true.
And that’s unfortunate, because Walker was only 40 years old and leaves behind a 15-year-old daughter. And considering that he is leaving Fast and Furious 7 unfinished, and also that his considerable work with charities helping such natural disasters as those Reach Out Worldwide has reached since 2010, the untimely accident must be felt as a sore loss to all who knew and cared for Walker.
“I am absolutely speechless,” said co-star Vin Diesel, who also sent out an Instragram of the two arm-in-arm.
Paul’s last words were ‘Hey, I’ll be back in five minutes. All right?’ as Jim Torp a witness to the crash, explained.
Walker definitely was a car-lover, as was his friend, the driver of the 2005 red Porsche Carrera GT, Roger Rodas, car company owner and former race car driver.
The crash burned the two so entirely that dental records have been pulled to verify their identities. Speeding was definitely a factor in the accident.Fast and Furious Star Dies in Fast and Furious Car Accident by Daniel June
