Paul Walker, the star of the ``Fast & Furious'' movie series, has died in a car crash north of Los Angeles. He was 40.    

His publicist says Walker died Saturday afternoon.        

A statement on the actor's Facebook page says he was a passenger in a friend's car, and that Walker was in the area to attend a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide       

The statement says ``We ... are stunned and saddened beyond belief by this news.''      

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's department says deputies found a car engulfed in flames when they responded to a report of a collision in the community of Valencia. Two people who were found in the car were pronounced dead at the scene.      

The Santa Clarita Signal reports a red Porsche crashed into a light pole and tree and burst into flames.       

Walker was working on ``Fast & Furious 7'' at the time of his death. He also starred in the suspense drama, ``Hours,'' which is set for release this month.
