Jasmine’s Famous Boyfriend, Paul Died In A Car Accident

In one of the most devastating blows to Hollywood and to the country, actor Paul died in a horrific accident on November 3o, 2013.  The Into The Blue actor was on his way home after wrapping things up with his charity, Reach Out Worldwide, for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan.

He was traveling in a Red Porsche alongside his friend Roger Rodas. The car was traveling between 80 mph to 93 mph in a 45 mph zone and once they reached Hercules Street in Valencia, Walker lost control and ended up crashing into a concrete lamp, and two trees. The car immediately caught fire killing both of the passengers on the spot. The burn was so severe that their bodies were beyond recognition.

Two years after, Paul’s daughter with his ex-gf Rebecca Soteros, Meadow Rain Walker filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche company. But, the company later proved that the incident occur due to the actor’s reckless driving.
