Following the fiery November 30 car crash that took the life of Paul Walker, as well as his friend Roger Rodas, Fast and the Furious co-star Vin Diesel speaks out for the first time on the loss of the 40-year-old actor. On December 2, two days after Walker’s death, Diesel dedicated a Facebook post with a photo to his co-star, referring to Walker as his “brother.” His final statement under the photo simply reading, “I will always love you Brian, as the brother you were… on and off screen.” Diesel later visited the crash site in Valencia, Calif., using a police megaphone to address the crowd of fans who had come to pay their respects to Walker. "If my brother were here right now and saw all the love that you're bringing here," he said. “If he could see for himself that all of you have showed up to show my brother love at this hard time, and that his family gets to see all of you show the love that you've shown Paul ... It's gonna stay with me forever. I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for coming down here and showing that angel up in heaven how much you appreciated him." At the time of the accident, Walker was working on filming the seventh installment of Fast and the Furious. The cast was on break for Thanksgiving and were scheduled to resume filming on Sunday, December 1, in Atlanta, Ga.; the future of the film is now unclear. After investigating the accident, police have concluded speed was a factor that led to the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, allegedly driven by Rodas, crashing into a light pole. Autopsy reports revealed that Walker may have initially survived the crash, but succumbed to the combined injuries sustained from impact as well as thermal injuries within minutes of the pair colliding into the pole. Michelle Rodriguez and Tyrese Gibson, also Fast and the Furious co-stars have also publicly expressed grief over the death of their friend over the past few days. Rodriguez took to Facebook to leave a message for Walker, while Gibson was seen crying at the crash site.
