    Dead at 40, from a fiery car crash.  From TMZ:
    http://www.tmz.com#ixzz2mBh4SNI0

    Paul Walker, best known for his role
    in “The Fast and the Furious” movies, died Saturday
    afternoon after a single-car accident and explosion in Southern
    California, TMZ has learned.

    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.  
    At
    this point, it’s unclear what caused the accident, or who was behind
    the wheel when it happened.

    Paul was 40 years old.

    Sources close to Paul tell us he was in
    Santa Clarita for a car show to support the Philippines typhoon
    relief effort, and had been taking friends out for rides in his new
    Porsche GT. The accident happened during one of those test spins.

    Story developing …

    Friend of mine came up with a site saying it was a hoax. So far only TMZ is reporting. Could still be true but truly hope it isn’t

    These days with so many hoaxes, you never know.

    But I’m seeing many other media outlets reporting it from the TMZ story.

    Saw that (won’t repeat the crude joke my friend made), and apparently Variety is confirming as well. Odd how a random celeb such as Walker is uniting the internet. He had a legion of fans it seems. And Joyride is a great tense movie.

    So sad. I’m shocked. I love the Fast and Furious films so this is especially shocking. Wow.

    It appears that there was a death hoax earlier and then one site ran a confirmation today that he wasn’t dead (which they’ve now taken down). This is adding to massive confusion.

    In any case, the people who make up these hoaxes are scum.

    Never understood the completely & utter boredom or idiocy one must have to start a death hoax. What do they hope to gain? Just a glimmer of hope in their mother’s basement?

    His death has been confirmed on his Facebook page and by the AP.

    Some people get off on causing chaos or suffering. Look at some of the fake tweets during Hurricane Sandy as another example. Maybe these people crave attention or maybe it is a way to communicate their anger and misanthropy to the rest of the world.

    CNN just called me and asked me to come on TV on Sunday between 5 and 6 p.m. ET to talk about all this, but they’re still leery that this may be a hoax …
