The Jalopnik site has me questioning it now. The forum story seems too close. I'll wait for coroner report.

RIP Paul Walker

If this is actually true, it's very ironic. Rumors of his death were appearing last Wednesday, and Thursday, and then this really happened?

I hate for It to actually be true

Rip Paul walker

Perhaps you should stop responding. It's a no-win for you here. :dunno:

Just read it on jalopnik.com, must be true. He was a passenger, worst way to go.

I actually thought he was a decent actor and sucks he had to go that way. They're saying some racer Roger Rodas was driving.

RIP Paul Walker

I may be the outlier, yes it's sad, but are people really that shocked that a reckless driver was killed? Apparently he was driving when he left the show... It's in my area, that's just what some of my buddies said.

My internet research is saying this is true.

Live fast, die young?

Really sad.

People at the event are saying Roger Rodas driving Always Evolving Perfomance's CGT and Walker as passenger.

Im posting this with a throw away account because I dont want to profit from this tragedy, but here are some facts about the accident today that everyone needs to know:
I was at the event an hour before the crash and 3 of my close friends were first responders at the scene.
Paul was NOT driving the car, the car was being driven by Roger Rodas, his business partner at Always Evolving
They were NOT street racing There was no other car involved
The only car involved was a Porsche Carrera GT owned by Always Evolving, which is part owned by Paul Walker
The crash happened on a quiet industrial area, directly in front of the AE shop
Paul was there to support a Christmas Toy Drive This was NOT a racing event / underground street race / anything of the sort
Roger lost control of the car, spun, hit a pole and the car broke in half and burned
Paul was a very casual acquaintance of mine, I doubt if he even remembers who I was, but he was very close friends with a good friend of mine Paul was was very gracious to everyone he met and an overall nice guy.
Please help me dispel any rumors that could taint his memory Yes, he was the Fast and Furious guy, but street racing and endangering lives was not his thing.
Paul has done great work with his charity Reach Out WorldWide including sending medical teams and supplies to the Philippines recently.
Clarification: I was NOT at the scene and was not a witness, I left to go get some food and heard about the accident and the fire dept was already gone by the time I returned.
Edit this is where the crash happened. The AE shop is directly behind it. http://goo.gl/maps/J85LQ

Sucks to hear, pretty young too.
Saw him at a Starbucks in Pasadena a little bit after either the first or second F&F, was driving a white R34 Skyline.
