RIP Paul Walker, UPDATE 12/2/13

Here is TMZ's twitter page but I can't get onto their site.

Anyone know anything?

UPDATE- it's true

TMZ

From ABC's website


'Fast and Furious' Star Paul Walker Killed in Crash

Paul Walker, an actor perhaps best known for his roles in the "Fast and Furious" films died today in a car crash, his rep told ABC News. He was 40 years old.

"Sadly I must confirm that Paul did pass away this afternoon," Ame Van Iden said in an email.

Though the rep gave no more details, entertainment web site TMZ reported that Walker was in a Porsche when the driver lost control and crashed the vehicle into a tree.

The Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station confirmed in a statement to Us Weekly that there were two fatalities in a traffic collision at approximately 3:30 p.m. Saturday.

UPDATE

The exotic sports car in which Paul Walker violently died, crashed as a result of mechanical failure -- very possibly a steering fluid leak ... this according to sources closely tied to the auto shop where the vehicle was stored and maintained. 

Sources connected to Always Evolving -- the shop co-owned by Walker and the Porsche driver Roger Rodas -- tell TMZ they saw evidence of a fluid burst and subsequent fluid trail before the skid marks at the accident scene.

The AE sources point to the fact there is a noticeable absence of skid marks until just before the point of impact. They say if Roger had lost control the skid marks would show swerving, but instead the marks were in a straight line. They feel this cements the theory the driver didn't have steering control.

Also suspicious -- the fire spreading so quickly in the front of the car. The sources say flames would be expected in the rear where the engine is ... but fire in the front reinforces their theory of a fluid leak of some sort.

We're told the $500,000 Carrera GT was NOT modified and was driven rarely so they believe any failure must be a factory defect.

As one source put it ... "Roger was a world class driver" -- and while he might have been speeding (as cops have said) ... the notion he just lost control is preposterous.

The link on TMZ's Twitter page just keeps 'thinking' so I'm guessing too many people are looking this up.

I read that he was at a car show at his shop in Santa Clarita, Ca..about 45 minutes from me, and took a friend out for a drive is his new Porsche, wrapped it around a phone pole and exploded.

It's a hoax, or so the interwebz tells me. But who knows? All the celebrity sites seem to be not working to confirm or deny.

I finally got thru on TMZ, can't post the article but linked it in the op.

Appears to be true.

Interesting. I can't get to TMZ and no other site that I'd consider "reputable" for celebrity gossip (irony) is showing anything. I believe you though.

It it's a hoax, whoever is behind it is good. TMZ might be cheesy but it owned and run by an attorney and they rarely get it wrong.
