A week after actor Paul Walker's tragic death in a fiery car crash, thousands of fans flocked to the accident site on Sunday in an outpouring of love and support for the fallen "Fast & Furious" star.
Many fans drove by the site in sports cars to pay their respects, while others walked for blocks to leave flowers, teddy bears and signs expressing for the late 40-year-old. Walker and his friend Roger Rodas were killed on November 30 after the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT they were driving crashed in Santa Clarita, California.
The usually quiet area of Hercules Street was taken up by a miles-long procession of vehicles that was allowed to drive through the crash scene. Two airplanes circled overhead, carrying banners in support of Walker and his family.
The memorial was not organized by the families of Walker and Rodas, but by Southern California car clubs and Facebook fan pages. A Christmas tree was placed at the scene, and fans lit candles and wrote supportive messages on a large whiteboard that featured Walker's and Rodas' faces.
Some of Walker's "Fast & Furious" co-stars, including Tyrese Gibson and Vin Diesel, have visited the site since the accident. Gibson was seen sobbing as he laid a flower at the scene, while Diesel thanked fans for their outpouring of support during the difficult time.
Diesel also posted a touching note on his Facebook page days after the crash about the Walker family's strength in the face of such grief: "When I heard, I immediately flew back to California, and went directly from the plane to his mother's house," he wrote. "I thought they needed my strength, but realized when I got there and broke down before his family, that it was I who needed theirs."
