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.

Life isn't a joke, I get they did all those stupid stunts for comedy but still.

Sad that he died so young, but we would have never seen Ryan Dunn grow old.... none of the Jackass guys - maybe Knoxville but they won't be old men when they go.

What a nice legacy to leave -- shoving a toy car up your arse and driving drunk and killing yourself.

Sorry but no sympathy over here folks..

"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.

RIP - Peace to your family -

If this was a DWI then Ryan's estate has a big lawsuit coming from the family of the guy He killed.

When are people going to learn that drinking and driving just dont mix. May this Jackass rest in peace.

Another drunk off of the road. The passenger was probably drunk as well. If you drink & drive this is the expected result. Poor car.

LIVE LIKE A JACKASS, DIE LIKE A JACKASS. LETS JUST HOPE THAT HE DIDN'T INFLUENCE TOO MANY TEEN BOYS WHO WANT TO BE "COOL" AND END UP DYING LIKE HE DID.

@LR "why does their having a family make their death sad if it was their fault?" I tell you why you wanker, because this is a tragedy and no matter what the person did and whether or not it was their fault, their is still that human emotion we call devastation when you lose a loved one. I feel sorry for your kids to have such an idiot for a parent. It doesn't always matter what kind of parent you are, kids are influenced by many things outside the home. Ever heard o****ape idiot? Unconditional love.

boohoohoo. if it was heidi montag or snookie or that russian ex of mel gibson's (her name escapes me at the moment and i don't care enough to look it up), you all would be rejoicing so screw your double standard. ryan's fate was totally in his hands in this instance, it was no accident, so yes in a way he deserved it. not that i'm happy about it or anything.

No matter if he was drinking or not. Or what kind of person he was he did not deserve to die like this. RIP Ryan
