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 last Saturday (30.11.13).

In a heart-breaking post on his Facebook page on Friday (06.12.13), 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 has 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, on Monday night (02.12.13), and a public memorial service is being planned for December 15.
