On November 30, 2013, actor Paul Walker was the passenger in a red 2005 Porsche Carrera GT which crashed into a light pole and tree. The car erupted in flames. The car was driven by Paul's friend and business partner, Roger Rodas. Both men did not survive.
The two men were attending a nearby event held at Rodas' automotive business to raise money for the Philippines typhoon relief effort. They reportedly left the event to go for a joyride.
Walker was most famous for his role in the "Fast & Furious" movie franchise. The accident occurred during a break in filming "Fast & Furious 7".
