It just still hasn't sunk in that we've lost a great guy in Paul Walker. The 40-year-old actor, entertainer, humanitarian, friend and father passed away yesterday in a car crash in California.

The single vehicle car crash occurred yesterday around 3:30pm in Valencia, CA. By the time deputies from the Santa Clarita Valley sheriff's station and the Los Angeles County Fire Department arrived at the scene they found the vehicle engulfed in flames and pronounced two people dead at the scene. Paul was a passenger in the Porsche GT with his friend and business partner Roger Rodas when the car crashed into a tree or pole.
