    I hope so....TMZ is running slow probably due to traffic but they even had posted a pic of a car on fire.

    I hope the initial reports were wrong, too. Not sure if someone who started the rumor was trying to be funny, but I fail to see the humor in starting a hoax like that.

    edit:

    it says Nov 30th, so today...

    This happened right down the street from my home. Crazy.

    The really ironic part is that he crashed on a road where everyone street races on the weekends. One of my friends actually wrote a car off on that same road earlier this year while doing similar stuff.

    Wow. How terrible. I really enjoyed watching him. From all accounts he was a nice, down to earth dude.

    Terrible news. My 12 yo son and I are both crushed.

    We are big fans of the series (esp volumes 5 & 6).

    My biggest fear as a father is that my kids will be in a situation like this.

    Really starting to pop up all over the net. I got a bad feeling about this.
