Pictured is the general view of the accident scene where actor Paul Walker and a friend lost their lives while test driving a new Porsche Carrera GT. The 'Fast & Furious' star died Saturday afternoon while riding as a passenger in the friends car as the two took a sports car on a test run on Rye Canyon Road in Santa Clarita, CA. Reports indicate that the friend lost control, hit a tree resulting in the car bursting into flames, burning both men alive. Though reports indicate it was a test drive, witness accounts say the actor and the friend were racing another car. Police have yet to confirm that version of the story. The scene where the actor died was surrounded by fans, news vans, police and fire fighters. The Los Angeles County Coroner arrived at about 8 pm. They assessed the situation, then took the actor's body away in a gurney, followed by his friend.
