Following the accident, police released a statement: "When they arrived, deputies found the vehicle engulfed in flames. The Los Angeles County Fire Department responded, extinguished the fire and subsequently located two victims inside the vehicle. The victims were pronounced dead at the scene."

Deputy Heischuber of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station told People magazine: "This is an ongoing investigation. A solo car crash occurred about 3:30 p.m. in the city of Santa Clarita, on the outskirts of Valencia. A 911 call came in from a bystander."

Meadow Rain Walker was the actor's only daughter, who was born after the "Fast and the Furious" star dated her mother, Rebecca McBrain in 1998, but they split not long after her birth.

Rebecca is reportedly consoling their teenage daughter: "Rebecca is being there for her daughter, who is naturally devastated," a source has told ShowBozSpy. "She and Paul had some good times together. She too is upset by his death."

Paul Walker was filming the 7th film in the hit car movie franchise, and it is unknown how filming will continue after the sudden death.

The tragedy happened as Walker was traveling in the passenger seat of a vehicle being driven by his friend. Their vehicle crashed into a tree in Santa Clarita and burst into flames killing both Walker and the driver.

Walker was attending an event for his charity, Reach Out Worldwide.
