Ryan Dunn Car Crash
34-year-old Jackass star Ryan Dunn died this morning in a Pennsylvania car crash, it has been reported.
You may remember Dunn from the ‘Hot Wheels’ stunt in the first Jackass film in 2002. Police in West Goshen Township say he and a passenger were killed when Dunn’s 2007 Porche went off the road and caught fire near the Philly suburb of West Chester. Law enforcement officials say speed may have been a factor, and several gossip sites are reporting alcohol could also have been a factor in the fatal wreck.
TMZ has published Twitpics posted late last night by the Jackass star, depicting him drinking with friends. (It is not known if the other individual in the accident was present in the photos.) Dunn was reportedly identified after the fiery wreck by his tattoos, but positive identification of the passenger is pending, and his or her identity has not been released. Police say that when they arrived on the scene, the vehicle was fully engulfed in flames.
