Sad news about paul walker, always a shock when it's out of the blue like that. Not really a big fan of his or the fast series but i did enjoy joyride and the first fast and the furious film very much.

Such a shame. Liked him as an actor and he seemed to be a really nice bloke into the bargain. R.I.P. Paul.

Let's presume it's safe to say speed probably played a part.Porsche.Telegraph pole.
Fast and furious indeed.

Someone up there really has a sense of Irony don't they? The star of the films 'The Fast and The Furious' and 'Road Kill' killed in a Car Crash.

It is awful, poor lad.

Was shocked when I saw this in the metro this morning :(

As much as Fast and the Furious films were technically pretty awful, I actually enjoyed them quite a lot. Real shame, he must have been absolutely flying in that Porsche though and this is the potential outcome of taking risks like that unfortunately.

Fast And Furious 7 is mostly in the can.Apparently Walker was at charity event then went with mate to a car shop.Apparently the road where they crashed is known for speeding.
Who knows?Maybe they swerved but an official has stated speed was a factor.
The limit on said road was 45mph.
Never the less any death is sad.A daughter has lost her father.
It's pretty dark when they are using just dental records.
What I was trying to get at is that people die on the roads.
Driving is not a computer game,driving is not Fast And Furious.
Enjoy the movies for what they are.....escapist entertainment.I remember years ago being in cars driven by supposed "boy racers",mad really.
You are not only risking your life but others as well.
For lordy's sake buckle up!Be safe.Be boring.

I wasn't aware of that Fox, I only read the blurb in the metro before getting off the train.

I think they had to use dental records because of the fire, here's hoping they both died on impact rather than by immolation :( poor daughter - just awful.

Apparently Fast and Furious 7 is still to go ahead but will only be delayed. As this is what Paul would've wanted.

And without a doubt when it is released, the Modified Car Scene will make a presence but on a large scale in tribute to the man himself..

"Hate to say it, but an eye witness to the car engulfed in flames said he could see someone trying to get out of the passenger side of the burning vehicle. They wanted to help but couldn't get anywhere near."

Ugh :( there is no worse way to go as far as I'm concerned. That makes it an even more horrible tragedy!

It's a decent way of looking at his death Fox, but his daughter is (IIRC) in her teens(?) and whilst it is obviously never a good age for something like this to happen, I think teenage years are probably the worst as they're obviously old enough to understand what's happened, let's face it there's already a lot going on in teenage years at school/development etc. It's just a clusterF.

RIP Paul Walker

he wasnt even the driver of the car. at the end of the day, we dont know all the details, but they were speeding, breaking the law, could easily of killed innocent pedestrians of other motorists. the stupid, inconsiderate, no respect for life people in this world serve as a lesson to the rest of us that, driving like a maniac and risking yours and others lives deserves the kind of death they suffer. thanks god no one else was injured or killed because of them.

its certainly a shame that anyone should lose their life in such a way. but if you have no respect for life then you dont deserve one.

also mr joe, it should be mentioned to those in the chopper crash. we shouldnt over focus on a couple people who decided to be stupid and died. these people were just minding their own business. quite literally wrong place wrong time, i feel far more sorry for the scottish ones then mr walker and pal. any loss of life is sad in itself, but lets save our thoughts to those who actually deserve it.

I have just seen the crash on Sky News from submitted CCTV, there was no other traffic on the road, apparently it is quiet & well known for racing... I have just read that he died of traumatic & thermal injuries, the driver multiple traumatic & thermal injuries.. " horrible" R.I.P

In reply to an earlier post on 5 Dec 2013 09:01:51 GMT
I heard they raced another car from a set of lights, but smells like BS to me.

so because its quiet, that makes road racing ok?
yea its not a pretty way to go thats for sure, very sad, but ultimatley life goes on for the rest of us who are smart and dont drive like llunatics.

I kinda agree with comments from both sides. Paul death, whilst tragic should show as an example to others who may try to emulate these films and agreed also that the sad loss of the Helicopter crash was a greater tragedy especially considering it was a mechanical fault that caused the crash rather than foolish risk taking.
That said however no loss of life is good. RIP Paul Walker
