Pablo, I wish you could see the world right now... and the profound impact, your full life has had on it, on Us... on me...
I will always love you Brian, as the brother you were... on and off screen.
Several hours later Diesel visited the crash site in Santa Clarita and addressed the crowd, "If my brother were here today. And if he saw all the love you were bringing here. If he could see for himself that [you have] shown my brother love," Diesel told the crowd.
Authorities were still investigating what caused the crash, which occurred about 3:30 p.m. Saturday. Walker's friend, Roger Rodas, was driving the 2005 red Porsche Carrera GT when it slammed into a tree and concrete pole, bursting into flames and killing both men.
Eyewitnesses have reported seeing only that red Porsche on the street at the time of the accident, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, which ruled out the possiblity of a drag race.
The actor and Rodas were attending an event for Walker's charity, Reach Out Worldwide, to aid victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines that night.
