Vin Diesel raced to the home of Paul Walker's mother after learning about his death.

The 46-year-old actor has revealed he jumped on plane to California to be by Cheryl Walker's side as soon as he heard that his The Fast and the Furious co-star had died in a fiery car accident. In a heart-rending post on his Facebook page Vin wrote: "When I heard, I immediately flew back to California, and went directly from the plane to his mother's house... "I thought they needed my strength, but realised when I got there and broke down before his family, that it was I who needed theirs.

"His mother hugged me and said I am so sorry... I said sorry? You're the mother who lost a son?... She said, 'Yes but you lost your other half...' "

Paul has left behind his 15-year-old daughter, Meadow, and his girlfriend of seven years Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell (23).

A coroner concluded the deaths of both Paul and his business partner, Roger Rodas, who was driving, were an accident, but investigators are currently looking into the cause of the single-car smash up, with speed believed to have been a factor.

The family and friends of the Hollywood star held a private memorial at the site of the crash in Santa Clarita, California, earlier this week and a public memorial service is being planned for 15 December.
