Speed is believed to have been a contributing factor in a single-car accident which is believed to have claimed the life of Fast and the Furious star Paul Walker.
Authorities are yet to formally identify the victims, but said speed was a factor in the crash, according to NBC News. The exact cause is still under investigation.
“We don’t know much about the cause of the collision other than that we know speed was at least a contributing factor,” Sergeant Brian Allen of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station told local media.
Fans have paid their respects at the site of the collision, after Walker's passing was confirmed on the actor's Facebook and Twitter feeds.
