Jackass star Ryan Dunn dies in car accident

Jackass star Ryan Dunn, 34, died in a car accident in Pennsylvania early this morning, according to TMZ. They confirmed the news with the mother of another Jackass star, Bam Margera. Just prior to the accident, at approximately 1 a.m., Dunn posted a photo on Twitter of himself (Seen above: Dunn is at left in the photo) drinking with two friends. The crash occurred two hours later, at about 3 a.m. this morning in West Goshen Township, Pennsylvania, when the car went off the road and into a forested area. Dunn and an unidentified person died in the accident. Although the car was “engulfed in flames” when officials arrived at the scene, it was determined by police that Dunn was the driver of the car. Dunn appeared on the Jackass TV series and in all three Jackass movies. More details will follow here as they become available.

    Have some respect Silver, Though i don’t condone drinking and driving. In fact I detest people that do it, “He is dead” so may he rest in peace. I guess luck ran out for him, but he did have a good run for what he chose as a career.

    If he was driving while intoxicated, he was a jackass. If not, rest in peace.

    Joshua, he didn’t just kill himself, he killed someone else also.

    It’s still sad to know he is dead. Although what he did was a jackass act that resulted in not only his death, but the death of another, it is still a tragedy to the people who knew him.

    So yea, have maybe just an ounce of respect, if not for Ryan then for his family.

    If he did drink and drive which they did not say(it just says he posted the photo on twitter, but I post pics that are days old whenever i think of them or get bored)…, then shame on him and whether he is dead and someone thinks this is a respect issue..he therefore took his own life and someone elses! That’s plain wrong period. The comments would be about the actions which lead to his death. On a side note the movies were hilarious and at least there will always be a legacy of his stupidity for all to laugh and enjoy.
