    Default 'Jackass' Star Ryan Dunn Killed

    "Jackass" star Ryan Dunn died in a fiery car crash in Pennsylvania early this morning.



    According to TMZ, Dunn, 34, and an unidentified person both died in the crash of a 2007 Porsche, which happened around 3 a.m. at Route 322 and New Street in West Goshen Township.

    According to reports, the crash occurred when car veered off the roadway and burst into flames. Speed may have been a factor.

    TMZ reports that Dunn was driving.

    Police confirmed to MyFoxPhilly.com that a fatal accident occurred but did not immediately release any additional details.

    TMZ confirmed Dunn's death with fellow "Jackass" star Bam Margera's mother.

    According to MyFoxPhilly, Margera's mother said she was not sure who was driving the car and added that there may have been a third occupant.

    A few hours before his death, Dunn posted a photo to Twitter of himself drinking with two other men. The photo was later taken down.

    Dunn appeared in all three of the "Jackass" movies. He also starred in the 2003 film "Haggard."

    According to a biography posted on his website, Dunn was born in Ohio and moved at age 15 to Pennsylvania, where he met Bam Margera on his first day of high school.

    Dunn, Margera, Christopher Raab (known as Raab Himself) and Brandon DiCamillo, under the moniker CKY for "Camp Kill Yourself," started making videos that featured them skateboarding and performing stunts.

    Dunn was working as a welder and at a gas station when Johnny Knoxville, a friend of Margera's through the skateboarding circuit, asked the crew to allow their videos to be part of the series "Jackass," which became a hit on MTV and ran from 2000 to 2002.

    A phone message left for Dunn's manager wasn't immediately returned.

    Sucks. He always seemed like a fun guy, it's never good when someone that young dies.

    When you think about all the stuff those guys did and were never killed, it's amazing that a car crash did him in.

    Alcohol + Porsche + 3am = bad things happen.

    I feel bad for the guy and his family having to deal with the tragedy, but it probably could have been avoided.

    Other people at the bar told TMZ he was "wasted," but Dunn's friend said he had 3 beers and 3 shots (sounds like a lot but a guy with a tolerance within 4 hours, that wouldn't make him "wasted"). He was probably already drunk when he got there or drank way more than that.

    He was going at least 110 mph, if not faster, and careened off of the road. According to other news stories the car went through 40 yards of trees, finally hit the last tree and burst into flames.

    Roger Ebert tweeted "Friends don't let Jackasses drive drunk," and TMZ is debating the too-soon nature of a lot of the criticism.

    But it was only a matter of time before one or more of these guys started dying. Normal people don't do this stuff. Dr. Drew said that Steve-O was on his way to dying before he got sober. I'd imagine a LOT of this stuff was done on drugs and/or alcohol.

    Being drunk and speeding in a car is just as big of a risk as anything else they ever did, and he paid the price.

    Yeah as tragic as this is, its a great way to show people that drinking and driving isnt the smartest idea.

    I was going to watch a jackass movie today but after learning about all of this earlier this morning, I suddenly dont have the urge to watch it anymore. I can only imagine what his family and the rest of the jackass guys are going through.

    RIP Ryan Dunn.

    No sympathy.

    He not only put his life at risk but he put the lives of others at risk, driving at the speeds he was driving and drinking the amount he drank before getting behind the wheel of a car.

    So this jerk is treated like a martyr by his fans and it blows up the social networking world, when a soldier from my area died recently (a close friend of my girlfriend's brother) and not a peep from anyone?

    Forgive me if I sound bitter, but what he did was irresponsible, and what's more irresponsible is how people are DEFENDING the guy. Tragic a life was lost? Absolutely. Does he deserve criticism for his decision? Yes he does.

    He thought the rules didn't apply to him. He was wrong.


    If you're gonna drink your face off then drive over 110 mph then oh well, shit happens. I only feel bad for those close to him.

    That's a damn shame and a lot people around here are heartbroken
    over it. Some of the JA crew live and/ or have hung out in my home town.
    Ryan was a straight up big hearted nice guy. Some of those
    dudes are a little immature and IMO very lucky they have made such
    a living off their low brow goofy humor but if you met them they didn't
    think they were above the law or entitled to be a idiot. Ryan was a great
    guy.

    Personally I think it's very sad. He made
    a very bad decision. A terrible one. I never would condone drinking
    and driving but can most of us say in our youth we didn't make that
    mistake once? Older, wiser and a parent I'll never put myself in that
    situation and I doubt this was the only time he drove impaired but it's
    a very tragic situation. Very bad decision with catastrophic results.
    it was his responsibility. I don't know yet if he was truly shit faced
    but it's a shame no one was there to stop him.

    I get the hate toward drunk driving. I think it's a terrible decision and
    thing to do but he was a really nice guy and the whole thing is tragic,
    and I'm not even a fan of JA or that whole thing. Hopefully it's a reminder
    to his fans and friends to not risk it. It's certainly not worth putting yourself
    and others in danger.




    I feel for his family and friends and sad I won't see the dude again.

    What about the person in the seat next to him who could only hold on for dear life while this showoff jackass took them on his joyride of fiery death.

    There was a person in the seat next to him who he also killed.


    I've never liked jackasses.

    I don't think any of us discount the pain his family and friends feel. I do, however, think that when you get drunk/high with friends and flirt with death for a living, you're walking on a thin line. In those situations, though, they only put themselves in danger.

    This particular event was no different than what Mr. Dunn did for a living. He got drunk/high with friends, risked his life, and this time he paid for it with his life--something one of these Jackass guys was bound to do. There are two differences here:

    One is that he didn't get paid for this "stunt," nor were cameras there to capture it.

    Two is that he put other lives at risk.

    Because of his past and what he chose to do in life, I do not feel sorry for him this time. In fact, you will see anger because the guy didn't understand putting himself versus many other people in harm's way. At 34, you should know that.

    I feel terribly for his wife. She will likely lose any money Dunn made in a lawsuit against the estate.

    Hey man Im not excusing the terrible choice he made.
    But it's different when you kinda know the person.
    Bam and Ryan are local guys and they don't run around doing
    the stuff you see 24/7. Imagine a good hearted linker that enjoys to party making such a choice.
    Though none of us could excuse the choice or make excuses for him/the situation they put themselves in
    you'd likely be sad and at least a little angry this happened. That his life
    came down to this. I only met him a couple times. I have friends that are
    tighter with Bam and those guys. All I'm saying is it's very sad. That my viewpoint.
    If some want to define a mans life by what u see in JA and this terrible event
    it's you're right.

    Judgment is easy to do, but not easy to follow. He obviously made a mistake. It cost him his life. I don't see anyone defending him, but maybe you know some weirdos on facebook or something. If you want to "criticize" him, go right ahead, he can't hear you. It won't change anything, but if it makes you feel better, I guess go for it. Maybe you haven't made a mistake yet in your life, which is awesome, I hope it stays that way for as long possible. But remember to treat others as you would like to be treated, and hope there isn't a peanut gallery of criticizers standing around when you do make a mistake you regret.

    As for the soldier, perhaps you should have organized a standing guard by the local citizens along the route his casket was taken the day of the service. We do that all the time here in St. Louis (unfortunately ). It is really an emotional sight to see a few hundred people crowding overpasses with signs and American flags paying respect to our fallen heroes. Hopefully no one else in your area loses their life in conflict, but if they do, you might consider it. It will restore your faith in people, I swear
