Too Fast and Furious?

Jayden Lewis, Journalist

Paul Walker, the famous actor of the franchise “Fast & Furious”, was recently killed in a car accident.

November 30th, 2013 Paul Walker was in the passenger seat of a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT. It was driven by a racing team partner and slammed into a light pole as well as bursting into flames in an office park in the community of Valencia in Santa Clarita, about 30 miles north of Hollywood. The driver was identified as Rogers Rodas, who also died in the crash. Speed was a factor in the crash. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office said. “A 45 mph speed limit sign was attached to the light pole knocked down by the Porsche.” His death was confirmed and spread across the viral world through Facebook and Twitter within minutes.

Tears were surely spread from Walker’s friends, family, and fans. Curious onlookers and media surrounded the crash site for hours, watching as investigators and firefighters worked to extract the bodies from the wreckage. A memorial of flowers, left by fans, remained on the charred roadside Sunday.

What most people are wondering of Walker, besides mourning over his death, is the continuation of “the Fast & the Furious 7”. Before his death, Paul Walker, as well as the rest of the F&F crew, was filming a new sequel to Fast & Furious. They were not able to complete the film with the death of Paul Walker, causing some confusion in the media industries. It is not yet told if they plan to over come this or simply cancel the project.

RIP Paul Walker
