Actor Paul Walker Dead in Car Crash-Truth!
Summary of eRumor:
Reports that Paul Walker, of Fast and Furious fame, died in fiery car crash on Saturday, November 30, 2013.
There have been a lot of bogus news reports of dead celebrities in 2013 but this one is true.
According to a December 2, 2013 article by the Los Angeles Times, “eyewitnesses so far have reported seeing only the red Porsche on the street when it hit a tree and a street lamp and burst into flames.” The article went on to say that Walker and his friend, Roger Rodas, “took a red Porsche out for a spin as a charity event held in support of Walker’s organization Reach Out Worldwide was winding down.”
The accident took place not far from the event as spectators heard it and could see the smoke rising from the incident. By the time witnesses could get to the scene with fire extinguishers it was too late.
L.A. County Sheriffs Department investigating told reporters, “Speed may have been a factor in the crash, which occurred about 3:30 p.m. on Hercules Street, a normally quiet road with a 45-mph speed limit.”
