Celebrities react to Paul Walker's death
Among the stars who showed their respect was Walker's "Fast & Furious" co-stars, Ludacris and Vin Diesel.
"Your humble spirit was felt from the start, wherever you blessed your presence you always left a mark," Ludacris tweeted.
Diesel took to his personal Instagram account and posted a photo of him and Walker next to the caption:
"Brother I will miss you very much. I am absolutely speechless. Heaven has gained a new Angel. Rest in Peace."
Walker, 40, was killed in a single-car accident and explosion near Santa Clarita, Calif. on Saturday afternoon, his rep confirmed.
According to TMZ, the actor was a passenger in the vehicle. The driver reportedly lost control and hit a tree or a pole, which caused the car to burst into flames. The driver was also pronounced dead.
