Just hours earlier, Walker was reportedly involved in a road rage incident that resulted in a fistfight with another driver in the middle of a busy road, according to WBRZ. An eyewitness recorded the fight, which was broken up by police. The officer issued both drivers a court summons at the scene and sent them on their way.

Walker posted on his Facebook page that he felt terrible about the incident and apologized for his actions. His last Facebook post came less than two hours before he was involved in the fatal car accident.

GoFundMe campaign has been established to help Walker’s family pay for funeral expenses.
