Paul Walker’s final moments before fatal ride | Celebrities pay tribute to the actor

2Few minutes before Fast & Furious actor Paul Walker died in a car accident yesterday, he posed next to the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT that exploded on impact in the deadly accident. TMZ reports that this picture above was taken just 30 minutes before the accident.

Paul had put together a car show charity event in Santa Clarita, CA. through his ReachOut Worldwide organization, to support typhoon relief efforts in the Philippines and was leaving the event in the red Porsche car when his friend lost control and slammed into a tree. The car exploded on impact. The police say speed was a factor. See more photos after the cut…

    Its really eerie that he died in a car accident according to Mario Lopez. I can’t help feeling that he was jinxed having been the star of the Fast n Furious franchise, but that’s just me spewing rubbish cos its a real disheartening news. RIP Paul Walker. How can a person be sooo hot and kind, humble and grounded. A rare gem’s gone way too soon. *sighs deeply*.

      @Nik. He died in the worst way imaginable, beyond identification. You’d expect that a person with such glowing tributes will have a blissful and peaceful end but as you pointed out, the irony of life.
