Jackass Star Ryan Dunn Tragically Dies

June 20, 2011
Early this morning, Jackass superstar Ryan Dunn was tragically killed in a brutal car accident near his home in West Goshen, Pennsylvania.

According to reports, Dunn died in a single car collision that took place around 2:30am following a night out partying with some pals. Police confirmed that they indeed found Dunn’s 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 “off the road and in the woods that was fully engulfed in flames.”

According to NBC Philadelphia, the Jackass cast member apparently had to be identified by his tattoos due to his body being so badly burned in the crash. A fellow passenger in the car with Dunn also passed away from the accident. Random reports are still flooding in about how fast Dunn may have been speeding as well as how much he had to drink before getting behind the wheel. In a very eerie turn of events, Dunn even tweeted a picture of himself with two buddies drinking a few brews just hours before the crash.

In the aftermath, Jackass leader and very close friend Johnny Knoxville took to his Twitter to give his thoughts on the horrible situation. He stated: "Today I lost my brother Ryan Dunn. My heart goes out to his family and his beloved Angie. RIP Ryan , I love you buddy."

RIP Ryan Dunn.
