TMZ reports:

Paul Walker — best known for his role in “The Fast and the Furious” movies — died Saturday afternoon after a single-car accident and explosion in Southern California … TMZ has learned.

The accident happened in Santa Clarita — north of Los Angeles — and Paul was the passenger in the two-seater Porsche Carrera GT when the driver somehow lost control and slammed into a post or a tree … and the car burst into flames.

Several of our sources — some of whom were at the scene of the accident — tell us a friend of Paul’s was driving and was also killed in the fiery wreck.

Cops say speed clearly played a major factor in the accident, but an exact cause has not been determined yet.

Paul was 40 years old. He leaves behind a 15-year-old daughter named Meadow.

Paul’s rep tells us he was in Santa Clarita for a car show — organized by Paul and his charitable organization Reach Out Worldwide — to support the Philippines typhoon relief effort.

Several of his friends were attending the event … which was very near to where the deadly accident happened.
