Vin Diesel is having a hard time after the death of his good friend and co-star Paul Walker and describes his feelings as a “painful void” left by the absence of his “brother”, at the time when autopsy results are released.
A little over a month since the tragic November 30 crash that claimed the life of the well-liked action star in a fiery crash, his buddy Vin Diesel seems to be struggling without his close friend.
Diesel and Walker starred together in the uber successful franchise Fast & Furious, which is currently filming the seventh installment.
As the new year arrives, Vin Diesel is in a reflective mood, pouring out his heart, once again on his Facebook Fan Page.
The 46-year-old actor took the death of his friend very hard, as did the rest of the Fast & Furious cast members and millions of fans all over the world.
On Thursday, Vin Diesel posted a touching message about Paul Walker along with a photo of the two of them laughing and enjoying the press junkets in London last summer, while they promoted what would be Walker’s last Fast & Furious movie.
Ever since finding out about the tragic accident that claimed Paul Walker’s life, Vin Diesel has posted several touching tributes on his page which is followed by over 59 million fans.
A few days before the first month anniversary of Walker’s death, Diesel posted a photo of the last scene the two filmed together for Fast & Furious 7.
Vin Diesel also shared that immediately after Paul Walker’s death, he went to visit his mother to offer his condolences and upon seeing her broke down in tears. As she comforted him, he realized that he needed her strength and support more than he had realized.
The official autopsy report, released on Friday, indicates that Paul Walker and his friend and business partner Roger Rodas, died of injuries they suffered in the high speed crash.
The investigation indicates that the Porsche Rodas was driving was traveling at an “unsafe speed” of over 100 mph at the time of the fiery accident.
The report notes that the car hit the curb, a light post, and two trees before being exploding into flames.
As the coroner had previously ruled, it was confirmed that Paul Walker died of traumatic and thermal injuries. No alcohol or drugs were find in either Walker or Rodas.
