The film community is mourning the loss of one of their own today. Paul Walker, 40, most notable for his appearance in the film franchise Fast and Furious, died Saturday afternoon in a one-vehicle car crash.

Walker was a passenger in a red 2005 Porsche GT, which was owned and driven by Walker’s friend and Always Evolving Performance Motors owner Roger Rodas, 38, who also died in the crash.

“Speed was a factor in the solo vehicle collision,” the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.

Walker and Rodas were leaving a charity event for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. The Porsche crashed into a utility pole and burst into flames in Santa Clarita, Calif.

Considered a true car guy in the film industry, condolences poured from both the car and film industry.

“All my strength, love & faith to the Walker family during this heartbreaking time. We find our strength.. in his light. Love you brother,” tweeted fellow Fast and Furious actor Dwayne Johnson (The Rock).

Walker is survived by his 15-year-old daughter, Meadow. Rodas is survived by his wife Kristine and two children.
