According to several press sources, the actor was in a Porsche when the driver of the car lost control and slammed into a post and the car bursted into flames.
Paul Walker was 40 years old at the time of his death.
Sources close to Paul confirmed that, he was in Santa Clarita for a car show to support the Philippines typhoon relief effort, and he had been taking friends out for rides in his new Porsche GT.
The accident happened during one of those test spins.
A rep for Paul confirmed that he was leaving the charity event at the time of the wreck.
My thoughts and prayers goes to his family and friends.
