Paul’s co-star, Tyrese, couldn’t hide his heartbreak when he visited the crash site where his good friend was tragically killed.
Less than 24 hours after Paul Walker tragically died in a car accident on Nov. 30, his Fast and Furious co-star Tyrese Gibson visited the crash site, where he immediately broke down in tears. In a video, he openly sobs while holding a yellow lily that he eventually places on a mound of flowers in memory of Paul, 40, and the driver of the car, Roger Rodas, 38.

The actor could not contain himself as he left a few flowers for his fallen co-star, while onlookers gave him space to grieve. He stayed for a few minutes to pay his respects, and then walked away stoically.
Tyrese, 34, expressed his pain in a tweet on Nov. 30 after he learned the sad news:

Vin Diesel ‘Inconsolable’ After Paul Walker’s Death
Vin Diesel, 46, spent countless hours with Paul on and off the set, since the actors were in the midst of filming the seventh installment in The Fast and the Furious franchise. They had filmed movies back-to-back since 2001. When his longtime friend and co-star heard the news, a source close to the actor told us: “Vin is inconsolable, understandably so. What’s on his Twitter is all he wants to say right now.”
Vin tweeted on Nov. 30 to tell fans the following:
Our thoughts and prayers are with Paul Walker & his family. Brother, I will miss you very much. Heaven has gained a new angel. Rest in peace
