Paul Walker Tribute in Scotland Turns Almost Deadly

Looking to pay tribute to the late Paul Walker, a group of car enthusiasts gathered in Aberdeen, Scotland at a parking lot in the Beach Boulevard Retail Park.

However, one of the attendees ended up revving the engine of his Ford Focus for 20 minutes straight, causing the car to catch fire and eventually explode.

An eyewitness told press, "Due to excessive heat and stupid behavior on his part, this car sadly went up in flames. It was his fault."

Meanwhile, local political figure Andrew May seemed confused by the incident- "It's extremely fortunate that whoever was doing the revving was not harmed. I just cannot understand why anyone would do such a thing. If the car belonged to the person who did this, then good — maybe they will have learned a lesson."
