We were shocked by the news Fast and Furious star Paul Walker died this weekend, but we were not terribly surprised at the tragic way it happened. Paul had an admitted love of cars his whole life and enjoyed racing hard in his spare time, even competing in the Pirelli World Challenge Series. We are just sad that Paul and his friend, fellow fast car lover Roger Rodas, did not keep their love of speed on the track where it belong, and not — allegedly — on the streets.
Paul Walker and Roger Rodas died together this past weekend when the car the Fast and Furious star was riding in struck a tree and exploded into flames. Although no official report on the accident has been issued yet, the Porsche Carrera GT driven by Roger Rodas was allegedly speeding at the time and tire burn marks were reportedly found nearby. According to police reports and photos from the scene, the car was completely demolished and the bodies burned beyond recognition.
