'Jackass' Star Ryan Dunn Tragically Killed in Car Accident at Age 34
After partaking in plenty of hilarious yet foolish stunts on MTV's television series turned film franchise known the world round, Jackass star Ryan Dunn has sadly passed away. However, it wasn't the crazy antics of the stunt crew that resulted in his passing, but as TMZ has confirmed with Bam Marger'a mother, a car crash late last night is the cause of death. A car with Dunn and an unidentified passenger slammed into a tree and burst into flames (see the photo of the accident site right here) at Route 322 and New Street in West Goshen Township, Pennsylvania. At this time it's not clear who was driving the automobile.
What makes this situation all the more tragic, and perhaps even senseless, is Dunn had apparently posted a photo of himself drinking with friends just hours before his death. This is surely a sad loss for the tight knit Jackass crew who seemed like some of the best friends to ever grace the big screen. Dunn himself got caught up in some pretty crazy stunts with Johnny Knoxville and the rest of crew. In the first film, Dunn famously shoved a toy car up his ass and went to the doctor to get some X-rays with hilarious results. Our thoughts go out to Dunn's friends and family as well as the unidentified passenger. Rest in peace.
