Paul Walker’s Fast And The Furious co-star Vin Diesel paid tribute to his friend at the scene of the crash. Vin told the fellow mourners at the makeshift memorial, “I just wanted to say to all of you, if my brother were here right now and he saw all the love you were bringing here. If he could see for himself that all of you have showed up to show my brother love at this hard time. And the family gets to see all of you, to show the love you have shown Paul. It’s gonna stay with me forever. I just wanted to say, ‘Thank you, thank you for coming down here and showing that angel up in heaven how much you appreciated him.’” So sad!
-Something may have been wrong with the car. Paul and Roger (Rodas) may have been taking the car out for a ride because it may have had a problem with stalling and they wanted to check it out.
“As they were backing up the Carrera to put into the garage, it started stalling. I heard someone say, and I think it was Roger (Rodas, who reportedly was behind the wheel), ‘Why is the car stalling? Let’s take it around the block,’ ” the source tells THR. “Paul said, ‘Let me go with you really quickly.’ The whole premise of taking the car out for a drive was because something was wrong.”
“Roger wasn’t the kind of guy to go max speed on a small street, same thing with Paul. These guys have respect for the car and they wouldn’t do it like that,” the source tells THR. “These guys are business owners and Paul was a celebrity. They are responsible people. It was more like, ‘What the hell is wrong with this car? Let’s see what’s wrong and go for a drive.’ These guys were more like, ‘That’s weird, the car is stalling, let’s figure it out.’ “
