Ryan Dunn Dies -- Driver In Fatal Crash

6/20/2011 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Jackass" star Ryan Dunn was the driver in this morning's fatal crash ... this according to cops who also say Dunn's car was "fully engulfed in flames" when officials arrived to the scene.

Ryan Dunn Death

The West Goshen Township Police Department says officers found Dunn's 2007 Porsche 911 GT3  "off the road and in the woods."

Both Dunn and his passenger "died as a result of injuries sustained in the accident." Cops will release more information on the passenger once officials can positively identify the body.

Cops say "speed may have been a contributing factor to the accident."

An investigation into the crash is ongoing.

As TMZ previously reported, Dunn tweeted a photo of himself drinking with friends hours before the accident.

If alcohol was a factor, this was deserved, if not, I am sorry to hear this.

have a little respect for him and his family. it doesn't matter whether he acted like an idiot or not. accidents happen and you should have some respect for the grieving friends and family. they lost a good person. if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.

"bubbles the chimp" that is heartless, he was someone's CHILD. Careless or not, if the crash didn't kill him then he burned alive...think of THAT before making an ignorant comment next time.

Silver your a dumbass. If someone is drinking and driving they deserve a DUI and reckless driving charge. No one deserves death for reckless stupidity.

@Bubbles The Chimp, STFU and show some respect. Regardless of the cir****tances this man had a mother and family. Would you want someone to make a stupid remark like the one you made to your mother if you were to croak? Would you want that in your obituary for your family and friends to read? Probably not so pipe down and stop being so judgmental.

I say, "idiocy was most likely a factor." Someone's kid or not- evolution is clearly at work here. Adios, moron. I have kids and if one of them behaved like a total idiot for money, fame, or kicks- putting their life at risk- and died doing it I'd say I failed as a parent. Why does someone dying make them less of an idiot? And, why does their having a family make their death sad if it was their fault? I don't see any other cars, and that is one hellacious wreck, so idiocy was at play.

I live about 500 feet from 322 bypass. VERY dangerous road. No speed signs, one lane each way, and very very small merge from route 100 to 322. Idiot drivers use this road to speed like CRAZY and test out their hot fast cars. I've seen that good ol' purple Lambo just as guilty as the rest of them, and, if you get into an accident and your car slides to the right then you're down a ditch in a matter of seconds. Very sad.
