On Monday, November 30, 2020, was the 7th anniversary of Paul Walker’s death. Paul’s death occurred after he’d enjoyed a day with friends at a charity fundraiser that was held in Los Angeles.

The “Fast & Furious” actor agreed to ride in his friend, Roger Rodas' 2005 Porsche Carrera GT. Sadly, the pair never came back alive as they experienced a tragic car crash.

The Porsche hit a concrete lamppost while being driven at high speed. The impact was so great that the car was almost torn in half and both Paul and Rodas died in the flames of the wreckage.

Witnesses tried their utmost best to extinguish the inferno but the fire was raging too fiercely and no one could help the two friends. The actor was only 40 years old when he passed away in California.

It was believed that Paul had died instantly but his autopsy told a different and horrifying story. The star was still alive for a while immediately after the accident and he could only be identified through his dental records.

The coroner discovered that the pair had not used any drugs or drank any alcohol before they got into the car. The recorded verdict of death was by "combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries."

Paul's daughter, Meadow Walker, 22, ended up filing a wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche. She blamed the brand for having seatbelts that trapped her father in the car, and no preventative measures to allow him to get out in time.

Paul Walker’s former co-stars also took to their respective social media platforms to honor his memory on the day.

Ultimately, the case was finally resolved in 2017 when the wrongful death lawsuit was withdrawn. The actor’s daughter reached an undisclosed settlement with the car manufacturer.

Paul had been best known for his role on the “Fast & Furious” franchise as Brian O'Conner. His former co-stars also took to their respective social media platforms to honor his memory on the day.

One of the late actor’s friends and co-star on the franchise, Vin Diesel, also paid tribute to him. Diesel also happens to be Meadow’s godfather, and she’s pursuing a career as a model.
