Fast and Furious star killed in car accident

Tragedy struck Hollywood when actor Paul Walker and a friend were killed in a fiery car accident. According to an ABC report, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies found a car engulfed in flames as they responded to calls about a crash in Valencia, a community 30 minutes northeast of Los Angeles. The Porsche they were riding in lost control and hit a tree and a pole before bursting into flames

Walker was best known as one of the main characters in the “Fast and Furious” movies, which featured many death-defying stunts and car chases. He starred in all six films that comprise the franchise, which has become one of the most successful series of movies since the first movie was released in 2001. The latest film that was released last summer (“Fast and Furious 6”) grossed more than $788 million worldwide. 

Walker was in the midst of filming “Fast and Furious 7.”

While the crash is still under investigation, authorities believe that excessive speed was a factor in causing the crash.

Car accident deaths naturally bring about strong emotions and real-life implications. There are also legal questions that come about, that center on the cause of the crash. Depending on the findings investigators make, a number of people (and entities) could be held liable. For instance, if the crash is linked to mechanical failings, the automaker could be held responsible through a wrongful death lawsuit. Right now, rumors abound about how difficult the car was to handle; but it remains to be seen what the full crash investigation will reveal.
