Paul Walker, best known for his role in the The Fast and the Furious movies, is dead at 40.

The actor reportedly died after a single-car accident and explosion in Santa Clarita, California, reports TMZ.

According to the website, another passenger was in the car with Paul and also lost their life.

“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,” writes TMZ.

It is unclear who was behind the wheel of the car when the accident happened.

Sources say the star was in town for a Philippines typhoon charity effort. He was reportedly taking friends for a ride in his Porsche GT when the accident happened, during one of the test spins.

Law enforcement is apparently still on the scene, and the L.A. County Coroner’s Office is also on the way.

Walker had one child – daughter Meadow Rain, 15, with ex-girlfriend Rebecca McBrain.
