‘Fast and the Furious’ Actor Paul Walker DIED in Fatal Car Crash

Actor Paul Walker, 40, and another person were killed in a single car accident in Valencia.

Actor Paul Walker, who gained fame as an undercover detective in the hugely successful “The Fast and the Furious” franchise, was killed Saturday in a car accident in Valencia, his representatives confirmed.

The single vehicle crash occurred about 3:30 p.m. in the 28300 block of Rye Canyon Loop. Deputies from the Santa Clarita Valley sheriff’s station and the Los Angeles County Fire Department arrived to find a vehicle engulfed in flames. Two people in the vehicle were pronounced dead at the scene.

The cause of the accident is under investigation, said sheriff’s Deputy Kim Manatt.

According to a statement on his Twitter account, Walker, 40, was attending a charity event to aid Filipino victims of Typhoon Haiyan for his organization Reach Out Worldwide, formed in 2010 as a quick response first-aid organization.

“It is with a truly heavy heart that we must confirm that Paul Walker passed away today in a tragic car accident while attending a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide,” the statement read. “He was a passenger in a friend’s car, in which both lost their lives. We appreciate your patience as we too are stunned and saddened beyond belief by this news.”

Officials with the Los Angeles County coroner’s office said they were still at the scene and could not confirm the names of either victim.

Representatives with Universal Pictures confirmed Walker’s identity and released a statement:

“All of us at Universal are heartbroken. Paul was truly one of the most beloved and respected members of our studio family for 14 years, and this loss is devastating to us, to everyone involved with the ‘Fast and Furious’ films, and to countless fans. We send our deepest and most sincere condolences to Paul’s family.”

At the time of his death, Walker, who also starred in “Pleasantville” and “Varsity Blues,” was working on the seventh film of the “Fast and Furious” franchise.

NEWS: Paris Jackson Rushed To Hospital After Suicide Attempt

According to reports, Paris Jackson was rushed to the hospital late last night after a suicide attempt.  Just before she was wheeled out of her home on a stretcher with two slits on her wrist, the 15 year old had posted cryptic tweets on Twitter that read, “Wonder why tears are salty? Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away now it looks as though they’re here to stay.

A source revealed to US Magazine:

She has major depression issues, a lot of it stemming from her dad’s death. It’s very real and very sad. She has been extremely depressed and not been able to sleep lately, staying up all night.

Earlier today, her mom  confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that Paris slit her wrists while telling the site that Paris has had a lot going on lately. She was also upset that she wasn’t allowed to go to a Marilyn Manson concert.

It’s hard to say what her current relationship is like with her father’s side of the family (after the highly publicized fallout with Janet last year), but over the last few months, she has reunited with her mother Debbie Rowe and has begun forming a closer relationship with her mother’s side of the family.

It hurts my heart to see a young girl going threw this type of pain. I don’t think a lot of people understand the pain that this girl must be feeling. I pray that she looks within herself and sees that she is worth all of what has to offer. Also I hope the relationship with her mother works out for the best.
