‘Fast & Furious’ actor Paul dies in car crash

DHAKA: US actor Paul Walker, who starred in the ‘Fast & Furious’ series of action films, has been killed in a car crash in California.

Walker, 40, was a passenger in a Porsche sports car driven by a friend, who also died, when it crashed north of Los Angeles, reports the BBC.

Walker was said to be attending a charity event at the time.

He starred in all but one of the films in the ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise, the sixth of which opened in May.

Walker also starred in the suspense drama ‘Hours’, a movie that is set for release this month.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department said the crash happened in the community of Valencia.

It said deputies found a car engulfed in flames when they responded to a report of a collision. Two people found in the car were pronounced dead at the scene.

Images showed the burned-out wreckage of a red Porsche by the side of the road.

‘It is with a truly heavy heart that we must confirm that Paul Walker passed away today in a tragic car accident while attending a charity event for his organisation Reach Out Worldwide,’ the statement on the actor’s Facebook page said.
