He was at a charity event when he and he friend were test driving a Porsche Carrera GT after he had repaired it. Only 500 yards away from the charity event held at his friends shop, his friend lost control and crashed into a utility pole. A minute later the car burst into flames. He was in the passenger seat. His friend died upon impact, but Paul was trapped and burned to death. The bodies were so severely burned that they were unidentifiable so they used dental records that confirmed the death. It's terrible. He was a great man, R.I.P Paul Walker.
