Attached Image Actor Paul Walker — a self-styled adrenaline junkie best known for his role in “The Fast and the Furious” movies — was killed Saturday in a fiery single-car wreck in Southern California.
 
A statement on the actor’s Facebook page said he was a passenger in a friend’s car, and that Walker was in the area to attend a charity event for his organisation Reach Out Worldwide.

According to fire officials, the single vehicle crash happened at around 3:30 p.m. local time in the Rye Canyon Business Park.
A red Porsche struck a light pole and a tree. Two occupants were pronounced dead at the scene.
 
A message posted late Saturday on Walker’s official Facebook page read: ”We too are stunned and saddened beyond belief by this news. Thank you for keeping his family and friends in your prayers during this very difficult time.”
The L.A. County Sheriff’s Traffic Services Detail and County Coroner are investigating the cause of the accident.
