Original Article:

Paul Walker died in a car accident on Saturday, according to a report from TMZ. So far, the site is the only confirmation of the Fast and Furious actor’s death, causing many Twitter users to wonder whether the Walker death report is a hoax.

According to the gossip site, the accident happened in Santa Clarita, California, north of Los Angeles, when Paul Walker lost control of his Porsche and slammed into a post or tree. The car apparently burst into flames, killing Walker and another person in the car. Per the report, law enforcement responded to the scene and the LA County Coroner’s office was on the way.

Several other sites are running with the story as well, but all avenues point back to TMZ. Twitter users mostly accepted the news, though some called the news a hoax, wanting to wait for additional confirmation.

If proven true, the news of Paul Walker’s death is certainly tragic. This is a developing story, and we will update as more information is available.
