The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department said the crash happened in community of Valencia. The Santa Clarita Signal reports a red Porsche crashed into a light pole and tree and burst into flames, killing both occupants. Photos from the scene show a pile of twisted metal and broken windows.
The talented Hollywood Actor Paul Walker died at age 40 today in a car crash. I offer my condolences to the daughter he left behind. He starred in the “Fast and Furious” franchise.
In 2004 2.8 million people were injured in car accidents and 42,636 were killed. That’s the population of Albania, so imagine that the population of an entire country were killed in a car crash in a single year.
39 percent of fatal crashes involved alcohol. Between midnight and 3 in the morning the percentage rose to 76%. As you can see from these percentages, drunk driving causes car accidents, which can lead to death. Remember to drink responsibly and always have a designated driver if you are going out to drink. Good night ladies and gentlemen, and rest in peace Paul Walker.
