The LA County Sheriff's department has confirmed that two people died in a collision at 3:30pm today, but no names have yet been released.
'It is with a truly heavy heart that we must confirm that Paul Walker passed away today in a tragic car accident while attending a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide,' reads a Facebook update on Walker's official page.
'He was a passenger in a friend's car, in which both lost their lives. We appreciate your patience as we too are stunned and saddened beyond belief by this news. Thank you for keeping his family and friends in your prayers during this very difficult time. We will do our best to keep you apprised on where to send condolences. - #TeamPW.'
Friends of the star told a local newspaper that they 'went through fire extinguishers' in a futile bid to fight the blaze that engulfed the car after the crash.
'We tried, we tried,' Antonio Holmes told the Santa Clarita Signal.
Another witness told the paper that he tried to put the fire out and recognized Walker inside the vehicle.
