Sadly I must confirm that Paul did pass away this afternoon.
A rep for Paul Walker has confirmed his death to ABC News. He was 40.
EDIT: Here’s a Facebook post from his official team offering more details.
Spectators gathered at the scene, and several said the driver was the star of “The Fast and the Furious” series of films. One witness at the scene said he tried to put the fire out and recognized Walker inside the vehicle.
Walker is said to have business ties to Always Evolving Performance Motors, located down Constellation from the scene of the crash. Always Evolving hosted an open house and car meet on Saturday.
