I know the title reads like a hoax, but it's real. Paul Walker was riding in his friend's new car when his friend lost control and crashed, killing both men. It's a shame. While I haven't seen any of his other works, I like the Fast and Furious series, and past 2 have been 2 of the best action movies of recent memory(also a rare example of a movie series that has gotten better and better, with 5 and 6 being better than the prior installments). Part 7 was still in production, wonder if his parts had finished filming...

Yeah, somebody posted that on my other forum.

The driver was probably driving like an idiot.

Brand new Porsche.

Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Forget general decency, and propriety, but when someone who's main career is starring in movies that promote reckless driving, car-worship, and gratuitous explosions dies as a result of reckless driving, car-worship, and an over-the-top explosive end....I'm sorry, but you have to at least chuckle.
 
Still, rest in peace to both of them.

Actor Paul Walker — a self-styled adrenaline junkie.

Yea, right. "Professionally trained"?
 
Irresponsible driving in public and risking the safety of others? I'm not impressed or surprised. Even though he was a passenger I will bet he didn't beg his buddy to slow down - now they both get to wake up dead and everyone is screwed - car down the tubes, no useable parts for resale. 
 
Firefighters spray water on the wreckage of the Porsche that crashed in Valencia, Calif., on Saturday.

I never saw any of the Fast and Furious movies. I only know him from "Joy Ride" and "She's All That."

I didn't follow the series...even if there was no fire, I doubt it was surviveable. What a mess!

If they're just putting out the flames in the above pic, does that mean the bodies are still somewhere in that mess we're looking at?

It looks like there is a greenish tarp covering possibly remains. With damage like that even a person that is strapped in could be ejected.

^  I don't see that, but in some homemade video I watched, the amateur videographer does mention a blanket on the ground.

You don't see what looks like a tarp covering part of the wreckage?

Do a Google image search of the crash photos & you'll see one where it's more obvious.

They usually use yellow ones, though.

I can't tell a lot of what I'm looking at in that mess.  At a quick glance, I thought that red thing (the hood) sticking up, was a surfboard.

Okay, there we go.  In the other pic, I thought that might've been the convertible top torn off the car.
 
One report said there were donut marks near the scene.  I can't imagine they would've been doing donuts there, though.  It happened feet from the site of the car show.

Some of the youtube comments bust on these guys for not trying to help, but they were already beyond help.

Right now, people are putting him in the same category as James Dean and Marilyn Monroe and legendary actors who died young.  I'm not going for it.  When I heard of his death, I didn't even recognize his name.  He's probably mainly recognized by fans of Fast & Furious.  Besides, he didn't have much of a persona.  Was he even a celebrity?  Granted, I don't know all the celebrities-of-the-moment, but he's been around long enough that I shouldn't have had to look him up on the 'net just to see what he looked like.

^ Exactly.

People nowadays are so afflicted with celebrity worship, they'll jump at the opportunity to hoist anyone up on a pedestal, no matter how little they've done to merit it.

James Dean, thru the roles he played, was on the cutting edge of an entirely new era in film making, not to mention the coming social revolution that was about to explode.

This whatsizname guy just made a bunch of cheesey fast car stunt films.

People are so easily impressed nowadays.

I wonder how long it will be before they start doing the same with the Kardashians....

"Whatsizname" is right.  My neighbor, who'd actually seen a few of the F&F movies, referred to him yesterday as "Chris Walker".  His girlfriend had to correct him.  Granted, "Paul Walker" is a pretty forgettable name.

Apparently, it shoulda been Paul Walking.

Cause if he'd been walking, he'd still be alive today.

The speed limit was 45 in an area with buildings all around. I'd guess they were going at least 70.
Two grown men in a performance vehicle, the driver should have known better. They are supposed to be skilled beyond any of us. Be careful who you get into a car with.
