News, “Walker was killed when the red Porsche sports car he was traveling in slammed into a tree and caught fire around 3:30 pm (2330 GMT) on Saturday in the town of Santa Clarita, in Los Angeles county, local media reported.

Prior to the crash, Walker had been at an event to raise money for victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines for Reach Out Worldwide (ROWW), a non-profit disaster relief group the actor founded.

Hollywood Life are reporting the actor’s daughter Meadow, 15, was also in attendance at the ROWW event and may have witnessed the fatal car crash that took his life.

Meadow was born to Walker and his former girlfriend Rebecca McBrian when the star was twenty-five. Though the couple split up shortly after Meadow’s birth the pair reportedly remained close, happily sharing custody of their daughter.

“I love my daughter so much, and I love her mom too. We get along so well as a result of me playing it the way that I did,” the Daily Mail reported Walker as saying.

Meadow is said to have recently made the move from her mother’s home in Hawaii to Walker’s base in California in an effort to be closer to him.

”I’m grateful I had her at 25 and not 20 because, at 40 and 15, we’re matching up sweet!” Walker told Express News. “She’s been with her mom her whole life and she wants a relationship with her pops. It’s working out really well right now.”

Fans and fellow actors on Sunday mourned the death of Walker, best known as undercover agent Brian O’Connor in the Fast and Furious action movies, in a fiery car crash in California.

The Sheriff’s Department has stated that speed was a factor in the crash. Police say his the body of Paul Walker was burned so badly that dental records must be retrieved so the coroner can identify the body. Walker, 40, appeared in all but one of the six movies in the popular franchise, and was a leading protagonist along with Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez.

“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,” the late actor’s publicists wrote on his Facebook account on Saturday. “He was a passenger in a friend’s car, in which both lost their lives.”
