Apparently the fast and the furious actor was in a car wreck that claimed his life and the drivers life after the Porsche they were in exploded.
I don't think the euphemism "passed away" quite fits when the car you're in bursts into flames after hitting two stationary objects at high speed.
Actually, I don't think that euphemism ever fits.
He died in a fiery wreck, probably quickly, certainly horribly.
Such is life and death.
What is even crazier it was not high speeds. Only 45mph around a 15mph curve which is a lot faster then what a normal car could take it bu 45mph is not a high speed. Compared to Ryan Dunn that died in triple digit high speed wreck.
