SANTA CLARITA, Calif., Dec. 4 (UPI) -- Paul Walker's representatives said on Facebook his 15-year-old daughter did not witness the U.S. actor's death, contrary to media reports claiming she did.

Walker, 40, died in a fiery car crash in Santa Clarita, Calif., last Saturday. He had just served as co-host of an event to benefit his non-profit, Reach Out WorldWide, when he left as a passenger in a friend's Porsche. The driver, Roger Rodas, also died.

"It is unfortunate that claims are being made to the media that Paul's daughter Meadow was at the event on Saturday when the accident occurred," the Facebook statement said Tuesday.

"We want to clarify that Paul went to the event alone. Meadow was not at the charity event on Saturday and thankfully, did not witness the accident. Any claims stating otherwise are inaccurate," the statement said. "Sadly, there's also numerous people creating fake social media profiles claiming to be Meadow. We would like everyone to know that Meadow does not currently have any public profiles and is not currently active on social media. We ask that her privacy be respected at this time."
