(RIP) Actor Paul Walker Dead in Car Accident (1973-2013)

Paul Walker was great in Joy Ride. He was even better – arguably – in Running Scared, two really dark films that featured the versatile performer in a leading, or co-leading role. While those were quality pictures, most likely recognize the blonde haired, blue-eyed actor as Brian O’Conner from the immensely popular Fast & Furious franchise. There are a number of enjoyable flicks on Walker’s résumé.

Sadly, his days of making movies are done, as are his days on earth. Walker died in a wild car accident in California today. He was 40 years old.

Here’re a few details courtesy of yahoo.

According to witnesses, the red Porsche Carrera GT carrying Walker and his friend lost control and slammed into a tree and then a light pole. Walker, an unapologetic car lover, had been participating in the “Winter Drive” for Reach Out Worldwide, a toy drive and car meet charity event for disadvantaged children. Walker was also involved in humanitarian efforts in Chile and Haiti after the devastating earthquakes in both countries.

“Speed was a factor in the solo vehicle collision,” the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department said in a updated statement late Saturday.

Earlier, the sheriff’s department and county coroner confirmed that two people were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash in Santa Clarita, north of Los Angeles, around 3:30 p.m. PT.

Paul Walker leaves behind 15-year old daughter, Meadow.

We issue our condolences. We lost a good one tonight, one capable of bending to fit the persona of countless characters and making a difference in lives. He had a lot left to offer fans of action, horror and, well, film in general, but fate dealt the man an ugly hand, and it won’t go overlooked by those who value the man’s work and charitable contributions.

A damn shame.
