With heavy hearts, CollegeCandy sadly reports that ‘Fast and the Furious’ actor Paul Walker died Saturday afternoon in a tragic car accident. Walker was 40 years old. This is the kind of news we hate to report and for some that grew up with The Fast and Furious movies, this news is nothing short of tragic and shocking.
According to TMZ, “The accident happened in Santa Clarita — north of Los Angeles — and according to multiple sources connected to Paul … the actor was in a Porsche when the driver somehow lost control and slammed into a post or a tree … and then the car burst into flames. Several of our sources — some who are still at the scene of the accident — tell us Paul and another person in the car were killed. Law enforcement is still on the scene, and we’re told the L.A. County Coroner’s Office is on the way.”
As the reports are updated, we here at College Candy will keep you all posted. Our thoughts are with Paul’s family and friends at this difficult time.
