The accident occurred in Santa Clarita — outside of Los Angeles — when Walker’s Porsche apparently lost control and crashed into a tree. The car burst into flames and exploded. The L.A. County Sherriff’s Office is still investigating and no one was immediately available for comment Saturday night
Authorities told TV Station CBS 2 in Los Angeles, the crash occurred at 3:30 p.m. on the 28300 block of Rye Canyon Loop in Valencia. The identities of the victims have not been released. While it is known that Walker and another person in the vehicle died in the one-car accident but it is unclear at this time who was driving at the time.

Brother I will miss you very much. I am absolutely speechless. Heaven has gained a new Angel. Rest in Peace.
