Paul Walker was killed in a horrific car accident on Saturday in Valencia, Calif., while in the passenger side of a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT. The famous actor was 40-years-old.
Police are still investigat– ing the exact speed of the vehicle upon crashing, but estimates show the car was exceeding the limit of 150 mph before hitting a tree. Grambling students expressed their thoughts about the tragic situation. “This is a sad case,” said Tyree Hollins.
“I hate that this happened to him. I loved to see him in the movies and I felt like I knew him as a person. I send my condolences to his family.”
“When I heard it I didn’t believe it until I looked on- line and seen it for myself,” said Jessica Tisdale. “He was a phenomenal actor who seemed like the sweetest person.”
“I really loved all of the “Fast & Furious,” movies said Taylor Smith.
“He was an incredible ac- tor. This is so sudden and he was so young. I loved his appearance on and off- screen. He will always be remembered not only for his work but also his character off-screen, and how he carried himself.” The police also stated
that the speed of the car was a factor in the crash because the car they were driving is a very difficult car to control at that level of speed. He was in the area to attend his charity event for his organization “Reach Out World-wide.”
