Absolutely Gutted about Paul Walker! Still can't believe it.

"Walker, 40, had been attending a charity event in Los Angeles on Saturday to aid Filipino victims of Typhoon Haiyan for his organisation Reach Out Worldwide. Walker was a passenger in a friend’s Porsche when the driver lost control and the car crashed into a light pole and burst into flames."

Always was a fan of his, and the Fast&Furious franchise. May he rest in peace.

RIP. As the cliché goes, at least he died doing something that he loved doing.

I'm withholding sympathy at the moment as I had a quick peek at the road the driver crashed on .. it's wide, flat and looks great, so I think they must have been going at a hell of a rate to cause the car to burst into flames and render the occupants unable to get out, makes me wonder how much alcohol/drugs/stupidity was involved.
