That Facebook post alone shows some serious love for the actor, and deservingly so. It seems that he was the passenger when a car lost control and struck a tree, resulting in a fire and the deaths of both Walker and the driver. More details are expected to come in the following days. As fans of Walker’s work, the Fast & Furious franchise, and as movie fans in general, out thoughts go out to Walkers family and friends.
