LOS ANGELES (AP) - Fans of "Fast & Furious" star Paul Walker have erected a makeshift memorial near where the 40-year-old actor died in a car crash in Valencia.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said speed was a factor in Saturday's one-car crash, though it will take time to determine how fast the car was going.
The crash also killed Walker's friend and financial adviser Roger Rodas. Walker's publicist, Ame Van Iden, said Walker was a passenger in the car when the two drove away from a fundraiser in a 2005 red Porsche Carrera GT.
Sheriff's deputies found the car engulfed in flames when they arrived at the site of the crash.
On Sunday, fans of Walker gathered to leave flowers, candles and memorabilia from the action movies.
