Burnt rubber and figure "8s" found near the scene. Too bad about the car.
Sad that anybody has passed. But Im much sadder about the everyday people who give their life for this country, rather than a movie star acting like a idiot showing off.

If any of us decide to do wheelies and high speed sliders we may get hurt or worse! :eek:

They pushed it and it went really bad! :thumbdown:

Sad deal, but living hi-risk! :eek:

Paul Walker was a passenger in a friend's 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, in which both lost their lives... He was attending a charity event in Valencia, California, to aid Filipino victims of Typhoon Haiyan for his organization Reach Out Worldwide, formed in 2010 as a quick response first-aid organization.

I am sick and tired hearing about the sad story of how Mr Celebrity dies in a car crash. Nobody mentions how the 2 people in the car were doing donuts and driving like assholes on a public roads, putting others at danger(and obviously themselves).

Ever day there are people a hole lot more worthy, of being looked at as heros, getting hurt and killed, but there is no sadness for them.

I would suggest that his comment was showing HIS perspective on what happened....
No, that is what the police were reporting. High speed was a factor, and burnouts and donuts were left on the road right up the street.
When you're driving safely at normal rate of speed cars don't usually crash into poles and burst into flames...

Roger Rodas, 38, and Walker, 40, co-owned an auto racing team named after Rodas' shop, Always Evolving. Rodas was a financial adviser as well as a professional driver who competed in 10 Pirelli World Challenge GTS races in 2013, his first year on the circuit. He finished second in rookie of the year standings, circuit spokesman Dave Drimmie said.
A 45 mph speed limit sign was attached to the light pole knocked down by the Porsche. The car, which sold for $450,000 when new, is a notoriously difficult vehicle to handle, even for professional drivers, according to Autoweek magazine. A top driver called it "scary," the magazine reported Sunday. It is powered by a V-10, 610-hp engine.
The street has a reputation for fast drivers, which spurred a crackdown by deputies two years ago... Torp thought he heard a blast in the distance before the car slammed into a light pole, he said. "What the first explosion was, I don't know if their tire blew up, because it sounded like a tire blew on the car," Torp told CNN that he looked closely at the skid marks and concluded they were left by a car with smaller tires.

And a U.S. military veteran will forever be grateful for a touching act of generosity.
