Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Obituaries

Paul WalkerPaul Walker was traveling at over 100 miles per hour when the car he was in crashed.

The Fast and the Furious star died alongside his friend, Roger Rodas - who was driving - when their Porsche crashed and burst into flames in Santa Clarita, California on November 30.

A new report from the Los Angeles County Coroner released yesterday notes Roger was driving at an "unsafe speed" on the road - which has a designated limit of 45 miles per hour - and lost control of the car "for unknown reasons." After the car crashed into a tree and a lamp post "the vehicle was almost split in half ... the majority of the vehicle was also charred" by the fire which followed.

The report also states neither Roger, 38, nor Paul, 40, had alcohol, cocaine, marijuana or other impairing drugs in their systems. It has previously been found Paul died from a combination of traumatic and thermal injuries. The report also said the actor had been in a "pugilistic" stance at the time of the crash, meaning he had braced for impact.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Obituaries

Paul WalkerPaul Walker and his friend were reportedly "not driving recklessly" when they were involved in a fatal car crash on Saturday.

The 40-year-old Fast & The Furious star passed away when the red Porsche Carrera GT, in which he was a passenger in with Roger Rodas, collided with a tree during a car show in Santa Clarita, California, that was organized to raise funds for victims of the recent typhoon in the Philippines and tornado in Indiana.

Jim Torp, who attended the event and knew Roger, told People.com that he did not think the duo were driving dangerously: "Roger was definitely behind the wheel. Roger slowly drove it out - he didn't take off recklessly. There were children around, after all. They were only gone for five or ten minutes and never came back... It was clear the car had hit two trees then finally hit a street lamppost. Parts of the car were strewn everywhere on the street, as far as 150 feet. I didn't see any skid marks. Where the car had crashed was on a long straightaway. How fast they were going, I don't know. Roger was not a reckless guy. He was a family man. He has a wife and two young children. He never did anything careless."

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Legal Issues, Rumors

Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan is being sued by a truck driver who she crashed into in June 2012.

The 27-year-old actress faces more legal trouble as cement truck driver James Johnson has filed a lawsuit against her, claiming he suffered numerous injuries and "great physical, mental and nervous pain" following the incident, according to TMZ.

Lindsay crashed her Porsche 911S into James' vehicle after speeding along the Pacific Coast Highway last summer. The star was trying to get to the Malibu, California, set of her TV movie Liz & Dick and exceeded speed limits by driving at over 60 miles per hour. The troubled actress - who was on probation for stealing a necklace at the time of the incident - originally claimed she wasn't driving the vehicle and told police officers her now former assistant, Gavin Doyle, was behind the wheel, however, the aide confessed to officials that Lindsay was indeed driving.

Lindsay later pleaded "no contest" when charged with lying to police and accepted a plea deal which saw her agree to 90 days of court-ordered rehab. The starlet completed her rehab stint in early August and has taken proactive steps to get her life back on track, including seeking advice and guidance from talk show legend Oprah Winfrey.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music

George MichaelGeorge Michael has been released from hospital 13 days after falling from a moving car.

The 49-year-old singer sustained head injuries when he fell out of a Range Rover at 70mph on the M1 motorway in Hertfordshire, England, on Thursday May 16. After being treated for almost two weeks, George has now been allowed to return home.

"We can confirm that George Michael has been discharged from hospital and continues to rest and recuperate. He is well and thanks everyone for all the messages of support," a statement released on his official website read.

The "Outside" hitmaker - who lives in Highgate, north London - was seen falling out of the passenger door of the vehicle and motorist Katherine Fox who witnessed the incident revealed she had reversed her car to shield George from passing traffic while waiting for medical assistance: "I saw blood everywhere and a man on the ground. I thought someone had run across the road and been hit. I asked what had gone on and was told he tried to open the car door and shut it again because it wasn't shut properly and apparently fell out at 70mph. I was on the phone to the ambulance and said, 'You'd better come quick. This doesn't look good.'"

Police Investigate Chris Brown

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Legal Issues

Chris BrownChris Brown is being investigated for a hit-and-run.

The "Don't Wake Me Up" singer reportedly refused to hand over his driver's licence and insurance information when he crashed his Range Rover into the back of a Mercedes at a set of traffic lights in Beverly Hills, California last week and police are now looking into the incident, according to TMZ.

Chris, 24, is still on probation for violently assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, leaving her face battered and bruised, and this alleged hit-and-run could trigger a violation.

This is not the first time the "Fine China" hitmaker - who was en route to a recording studio with his former lover Karrueche Tran - has been involved in a car accident. In February, Chris wrecked his Porsche 911 after he hurtled into a wall claiming he was cut off by "aggressive" paparazzi photographers in Los Angeles, California. "The occupants jumped out, with cameras, and aggressively approached his vehicle. In an effort to remove himself from the situation, he [Chris] began to back down an alley at which point his was cut off by two additional vehicles. Chris' vehicle was wrecked due to this aggressive pursuit by the paparazzi," a spokesperson said at the time.

George MichaelGeorge Michael is still in hospital after his car accident.

The 49-year-old singer is being kept under medical supervision in a specialist trauma center in London after sustaining head injuries last week when he fell out of a car at 70mph on the M1 motorway in Hertfordshire, England. "Following the traffic accident on Thursday, we can confirm that he is still in hospital. We are keen to stress it's purely as a precaution for observation. He did suffer a couple of bumps and bruises to the head and that's why they are keeping him in - to keep an eye on him. He is doing better. He is making good progress and is looking forward to getting out," his spokesperson said.

The former Wham! star was a passenger in a silver Range Rover when he fell out of the moving vehicle onto the road at junction 6A, near St Albans. The incident is believed to have happened because he was trying to close the door properly. The lucky pop star narrowly avoided being hit by cars on the dangerous four-lane stretch of motorway, and his friends pulled on to the hard shoulder and ran across two lanes of traffic to help him.
