He was in Santa Clarita for a car show to support the Philippines typhoon relief effort, and went for a ride with a friend in a new Porsche GT. The accident happened during that test spin.

"He was a passenger in a friend's car, in which both lost their lives," Walker's representative said in a statement.

The representative added that Paul was "attending a charity event for his organisation Reach Out Worldwide."
