    I am saddened by this news and haven't seen Fast and Furious 6 yet.

    Though I did not know him,
    may he rest in peace.

    The driver was Roger Rodas.

    Roger Rodas has been named as the driver

    The driver of the car involved in Saturday's fatal crash, which killed Hollywood actor Paul Walker, has been named as former race car driver Roger Rodas - according to a Santa Clarita radio station.
    The pair met when they raced cars together at various events, and Rodas later became Paul's business partner and financial adviser in 2007.Rodas, 38, was the CEO of Always Evolving, a car customisation shop, where Saturday's charity event was being held.Paul leaves behind his 15-year-old daughter Meadow, and former pro racer Rodas leaves behind his wife and two children.
    Tragic actor Paul was pictured just hours before his fatal final journey - alongside the car he died in.
    The eerie photo shows the late 40-year-old alongside his friend's bright red Porsche GT just hours before his death.
    Walker was in the passenger seat of a friend's red Porsche GT on his way to a charity event when the driver lost control.
    The Los Angeles County Sheriff's department confirmed when officers arrived at the scene, they found the vehicle had gone up in flames and two people were pronounced dead.
    Roger was the CEO of Always Evolving, a car customisation shop, where Saturday's charity event was being held.

    Can't believe how utterly destroyed the car is... i wonder how fast they were going.
    I thought you guys were only allowed to drive 70 or something in the US?!

    Shame really

    That is the max speed limit but not all abide by it.

    Justin beiber was doing over 100 in a residential neighborhood where the speed limit is 25.

    Some people think they are bulletproof. Lots of people die on the interstate here. Everyone is in a hurry and don't realize they are driving to 3 to 5 thousand pound missiles.

    I did my share of speeding when I was younger but wised up. Now I drive an f150 and obey all speed limits.

    This is indeed very sad. Although one thing I don't understand is that no one has mentioned how bad this could've been if they had not struck a tree (or whatever they did) and instead another car (and however many people inside) as it's fairly obvious by looking at the pictures that the car was likely going over 100mph+, being a porche and all. they could've easily killed a few people with them.

    It sucks that he wasn't even the driver but he was with a driver that he should have "trusted" so that's his own fault. I'm sorry to say this but we are just witnessing the natural selection. we should be glad it wasn't another car they had struck. i have a difficult time feeling bad for people that die due to driving fast cars, fast.

    EDIT: nvm, wife tells me they were practicing in a closed off area...still, guy was on a cell phone, we don't know if they were safer on the road...natural selection.

    F&F7 update - He was apparently going to film key scenes this week and the movie is on hold now until everything is figured out. The movie basically has 3 options now.
    1 - Recast the character
    2 - Rewrite most of the movie
    3 - Can the movie

    never heard of him personally, but this is the first question that went through my mind when I saw what was left of the car.

    a car doesn't get obliterated like that by driving within statutory speed limits
    Don't waste your words I don't need anything from you.
    I don't care where you've been or what you plan to do.
    I am the resurrection and I am the light.
    I couldn't ever bring myself to hate you as I'd like.

    Don't forget the fire fighters will have cut it to pieces to get the bodies out. Still taking that into account is not a speed limit crash.

    Coroners report says he died within seconds. Authorities say the car was going over 90mph.

    The problem is that this car was also made with magnesium, which is known to burn far hotter than regular fires.
