UPDATE: Fans soon started to gather at the crash site last night, leaving flowers and candles for the deceased. The vigil was held very shortly after law enforcement cleared the scene — removing the bodies of Paul and the driver Roger Rodas … as well as the charred wreckage.

Beloved actor Paul Walker’s daughter, Meadow Walker, was with her father at his charity event, right before he died on Saturday, Nov. 30. The Fast & Furious star was 40, when the sports car he was riding in burst into flames.

Walker was in the passenger seat of a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, driven by a racing team partner, friend and financial advisor Roger Rodas, that slammed into a light pole and burst into flames in an office park in the community of Valencia in Santa Clarita, about 30 miles north of Hollywood.

Cops say speed clearly played a major factor in the accident, but an exact cause has not been determined yet. Figure 8 patterns were also spotted close to the wreckage.

The crash occurred on Hercules Street in the Rye Canyon Industrial Park.

Several of Paul’s friends were attending the event … which was very near to where the deadly accident happened.

“We were collecting toys for the Indiana tornado victims and the Philippine [typhoon] victims,” says Jim Torp, who attended the event held by Always Evolving, a Valencia, Calif.-based automotive company. “There were dozens of high-end race cars and custom-built cars on display.”

Universal Studios soon issued a statement after the incident saying,

“All of us at Universal are heartbroken. Paul was truly one of the most beloved and respected members of our studio family for 14 years, and this loss is devastating to us, to everyone involved with the FAST AND FURIOUS films, and to countless fans. We send our deepest and most sincere condolences to Paul’s family.”

A witness to the crash said the car was in half, but initially, they couldn’t tell if anyone was in the vehicle. Soon after, however, they could tell that the passengers were still inside.
