Vin Diesel arrived at Paul Walker's crash site and gave a heartbreaking speech. The actor visited the crash site turned memorial on Dec. 2 and used the loudspeaker from a police car to address the fans according to TMZ.

"...to show the love that you've shown Paul... it's going to stay with me forever. I just want to say thank you. Thank you for coming down here and showing that angel up in heaven how much you appreciated him. Thank you," Vin said. The crowd cheered loudly after Vin put the loudspeaker back into the car.

Vin Diesel kept his speech short but he wanted to address the public in his own way -- and it was really emotional. Diesel is a pretty private guy -- he doesn't even have Twitter! -- but for him to take the time to address the fans and just to be a part of it all? That's pretty amazing.

After his speech, Vin was escorted to a nearby SUV. A paparazzi tried to approach him and asked how he was doing and for a split second it seemed like Diesel was going to answer... but he just sort of sighed and got into the vehicle. The pap continued asking questions and got a response when he asked about the seventh "Fast and Furious" film... to which Diesel responded, "You know, I can't even think about anything but the loss of a loved one."
