Paul Walker Car Crash Autopsy Results Soon Available
Actor Paul Walker died on Saturday in a car crash. He and a friend were on their way to a car show in Santa Clarita, California, according to TMZ, when the car sped out of control. Police say the fiery accident was a result of the speeding two seater Porsche Carrera GT and even tied it to a bogus street race. Walker’s friend Roger Rodas was driving the car that they had posed with just thirty minutes before they headed out. The car show was part of Walker’s charity foundation Reach Out Worldwide, which was supporting the recent typhoon disaster in the Philippines. The car burst into flames after hitting a tree. Both the driver and passenger burned to death in the crash, but the coroner is waiting for dental records to make a positive I.D. on both men. The exact cause of death is waiting to be revealed by the autopsy results.
Walker was best known for “The Fast and the Furious” franchise but also starred with Jessica Alba in “Into the Blue.” Aside from acting he had a passion for oceanography, even tagging along on a Great White expedition on the Discovery Channel. Friends and fans have done nothing but bring prayers and love to each other as they try to accept his tragic fate. One fan said, “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.”
Co-star and close friend Vin Diesel thanked mourners for “showing that angel in heaven how much you appreciate him.” Showing a lack of concern for the human lives taken by the accident, a Hollywood gossip reporter asked Diesel about the future of the “Fast and Furious” franchise, to which Diesel respectfully replied, “I can’t even think about anything but the loss of a loved one.” Really people, there is a time and a place where certain superficial concerns simply don’t matter. My heart goes out to Walker and Rodas’s family, friends and fans.
