What were your reactions when you guys found out that Paul Walker died?
Walker and a companion were driving in Valencia, Santa Clarita, California, when the red Porsche sports car they were in swung out of control and crashed into a light pole and tree. The car immediately exploded and burst into flames. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department declared two deceased at the scene.
Just saw this on Yahoo News. I shrugged and said "Well, that sucks"
Real life ain't a movie. Lesson learned here is that we should not play with our lives. Cars were invented to serve as conveyance; not to show-off or impress someone.
Who is this? I just knew this man and this news from you. He must be a bad driver, even he was in the guest seat, undoubtedly. I hope there were no any other innocent victims. I hate irresponsible drivers!
He's the guy who starred in the "Fast & The Furious" film series
I hate irresponsible drivers too.
he must have been a bad driver even being in the passenger seat? i must be a bad football player because packers keep losing, even though i dont play or make decisions for them
He was the passenger and not the driver!
doesn't matter who drove the car. I am sure the tree would have been equally merciless had Paul driven the car.
i dont understand. sure hitting the tree would have the same result. wouldn't changing the driver make the outcome of hitting the tree possibly different? in a sense, it does matter who drove. im just askin, how is he at fault as the passenger?
Sure doesn't matter who drove the car!!! If the passenger is a conscious responsible mature people, let a smart celebrity unsaid, s/he would've definitely done something in advance to avoid such stupid incident. He must've been happy such a drive.
Agree with you Hui.
And even if Paul was the passanger, he should have told his partner to slow down.
Sadness of course. I think every human being is saddened by someone's passing. Especially at such a young age. Tragic!
Tragic indeed. Hopefully some other day, some other driver will remember this incident and drive responsibly.
shahkar-khan, He was the passenger and not the driver of the car.
Having said that it's doubtful it will have an affect on other drivers. People still drive under the influence and text while driving despite the number of deaths on the road.
It doesn't matter who the driver was. 'Irresponsible driving leads to tragic incidents like these'. And if it will have no effect on other drivers, such incidents are bound to recur.
Shahkar. Your sentiment is appreciated but unfortunately by tomorrow it will be forgotten. People much more famous than him have died this way and no one learned. Remember Princess Di?
Agreed with you IDONO. And yeah you are right, it is very unfortunate.
You can't say "no one learned". Someone learned, you just don't know. "Di" was totally different situation. She was trying to escape from the catching up of stupid journalists.
ironic. the fast and furious star dies in a fiery car wreck? all i can think is very ironic.
Lesson to be learned by teenagers.
True...lessons to be learned. But we all know that they don't learn from this.
I felt truly sad. Appreciated all of his work in the Fast and Furious franchise. He was also an enthusiast. Someone that wasn't just an actor and starred in movies about cars. He walked the walk. From what I've heard was that he was super chill and down to earth. Humble is the word used to describe him.
I've never met him, but if I ever did, I'd say I'm a big fan and would want his autograph.
That will be a reminder for us to DRIVE SAFELY. I like him in the show Fast and Furious ... though cars are racing like hell. It is always about SAFETY when comes to real life for everything you do. Even if you do not think of yourself, you should think of others. It's sad to lose a life but a lesson to be learnt.

As the move towards driver-less cars plows forward, one philosophical question raises the ante.In a collision scenario where someone will die; a pedestrian or a passenger in the car, what action should the driver-less car take; swerve and kill the passenger, or stay on course and kill the...

What do you call a driver who hits a bicyclist and leaves without finding out if they are hurt?If you hit a bicyclist while driving up Auto Mall Parkway, on Friday afternoon, and didn't stop, you will always wonder if you killed the bicyclist. Your total disregard for common courtesy put you in a...

I wrote about it. I am completely against it and my father died because of a drunk driver. I have forgiven the driver but our family member cannot be replaced. If people are going to drink they should be responsible and have a designated driver or drink at home. Never ever get behind the wheel of a...
