Officials: Speed a factor in Paul Walker crash

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Details continue to emerge about the fiery car crash that killed "Fast & Furious" star Paul Walker and one other person.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says speed was a factor in the one-car crash in the community of Valencia. Deputies found a red Porsche engulfed in flames when they arrived Saturday afternoon.

Walker's publicist said Sunday the other person in the car was Roger Rodas, a friend of Walker's who owned a sport car dealership.

Walker's publicist said the actor was the passenger, though the sheriff's department did not confirm that.

The Porsche crashed into a light pole and tree and burst into flames. The downed light pole had a speed limit sign of 45 mph.

Walker was in Valencia for a fundraiser benefiting victims of the recent typhoon in the Philippines.

Very Sad to hear about Paul Walker, I really liked his movies and he genuinely seemed like a great guy who was so well liked by his peers in the Hollywood community. What a tragic end to something so avoidable. May God rest his soul !

I liked his style in the F&F movies,but thats hollywood...RIP.A lot of people nowadays with all the enhancements that automotive technology has brought the last few decades drive way to fast thinking they're invincible.It's still a car piloted by a human and no matter how good the safety features are it still needs to be driven responsibly and wisely not like he did in the movies.Just glad a innocent bystander or responsible motorist wasn't killed or had a life changing injury.Condolences to his family.
