The Thanksgiving holiday weekend has taken a tragic turn in Hollywood. TMZ is reporting movie star Paul Walker is dead following a fiery car crash. He was 40.

From the report:

The accident happened in Santa Clarita -- north of Los Angeles -- and according to multiple sources connected to Paul ... the actor was in a Porsche when the driver somehow lost control and slammed into a post or a tree ... and then the car burst into flames.

Walker, famous for starring in the high-grossing The Fast and The Furious franchise, appeared on CBS Daytime's The Young and the Restless as Brandon Collins in 1992. Walker leaves behind one daughter, Meadow, born in 1998.

So sad. I feel sorry for his daughter, being a teenager and having to lose a parent so unexpectedly and suddenly. That has to be the worst. God bless his soul and his loved ones who have to go on without him. Sad

I just saw it here before I saw it anywhere else! So sad, he seemed like a good, classy, nice guy too. And so very handsome, those blue eyes!

Sorry to hear this story. Car accidents is not new to us. Annual reports for car crashes increases tremendously. This is why NHTSA proposed rules that would mandate Event Data Recorders (EDR) in all new cars and light trucks.
