Brian O’Connor (Paul Walker) will ‘retire’ and not be killed off from Fast & Furious 7 image

According to The Hollywood Reporter website, Paul Walker, also known as Brian O’Connor in the Fast and Furious film series will ‘retire’ when the new movie premieres on April 2015.

“The plan is to “retire” the character in a way that the studio hopes will satisfy fans of the franchise and make use of the existing footage of Walker,” The Hollywood Reporter website wrote.

Paul Walker and his friend Roger Rodas died in a tragic accident on November 30, after the red 2005 Porsche Carrera GT crashed into a lamp post and caught fire. Walker was a passenger.
According to the LA police department, the deadly accident was not caused by any drag racing.

“We have received eyewitness statements that the car involved was traveling alone at a high rate of speed,” the Los Angeles police department said.

According to TMZ, the Carrera GT started to hydroplane and lost traction after hitting the markers – called Botts’ Dots. Most of the dots are made of plastics like polyester or various ceramic materials.
