Everyone was completely shocked about the tragic death of actor Paul Walker over the weekend. He was only 40 years old and is reportedly the victim of a fiery car crash. Of course, in the days following his death, more and more details about what happened have been released. And it's all the more sad as it seems that this accident could have been avoided.
TMZ is reporting that cops now believe that Walker was in the middle of a high-speed street race with another car at the time of his death. Apparently they've received tips that Walker and the man who was driving, Roger Rodas, who also lost his life, had been racing before the crash. The area where the accident occurred is a popular street racing location.
So far, no one knows if another car was involved, and police are looking for footage and witnesses, but still ... how devastating would it be if racing were the cause that ended these two men's young lives?
