At around 3:00am Monday morning in Pennsylvania, one of the many stars of MTV’s Jackass, Ryan Dunn, was involved in a car accident that left him and one other dead. He was 34 years of age.
It was reported that Dunn and a companion were in a 2007 Porsche when it went over the guardrail and into some trees before catching fire, leaving almost nothing. Little more details to the crash have been released, but Dunn did post an image on Twitter of himself and some friends drinking. You can see the last image Dunn posted of himself as well as a picture of the horrific remains of his vehicle by heading to TMZ.
In addition to appearing on Jackass, he was also a part of the movies and various spinoffs the show spawned, including Viva La Bam! with co-star and good friend Bam Margera. It was Margera’s mother, April, who confirmed the news.
Dunn’s new show, Proving Ground, had just premiered on G4 last week. In it he and co-host Jessica Chobot try and recreate things from video games and movies, such as a real-life Mario Kart.
