34-year-old Dunn appeared in all of the "Jackass" movies -- famously shoving a toy car into his rectum in the first flick back in 2002. 

Dunn and an unidentified person both died in the crash which happened around 3 a.m. at Route 322 and New Street in West Goshen Township. It's unclear who was driving the car.

We're told the car caught fire in the crash -- and hours later, a tow truck was called to the scene to remove the charred wreckage.

Clearly speed had a factor... cars do not tear apart like that under normal speed even if it was rolled or hit a tree.

I hope his friends take this as a lesson....

@Ryan - yes, you are superior in intellect with your sympathy for a "Jackass", but proclaim "nobody cares" when someone gets mugged or scared by these antics. Intellect at its finest.

What exactly was your response to the fact that dropping fecal matter in a public store isn't a stunt - it's degenerate behavior that hurts those who are plotted on by these "Jackass" people.?.?.? How are they "pushing their limits" as you suggest by pooping in a public store in one of their products or, lets say, diving into sewer. Whats the stunt?

You try, you just fall so short. You get an A- for effort.

Sorry, to hear about his death. He brought me many laughs when I didn't have much to laugh about in my life. Regardless of the situation it is sad. I hope no one else was hurt. It reminds you to drive safe and don't drink and drive. Cheers. RIP.

A shame that this was a result of poor decision making. Drinking and driving just isn't worth it.

I went to West Chester East High School with Dunn, Bam, Raab, etc....and I graduated with Dunn and Bam's older brother Jess....Dunn was a good dude - we sat next to each other in Mr. Rotondo's first period english class and cheated off of each other all of the time....needless to say we didn't do so well....but he was a great guy....always came in upset it was so early and that we were in school, but by the end of the period he was cracking jokes and doing something crazy that always made me laugh....he will be missed - RIP buddy....I'll study for the next quiz.

shocking to hear a legend from jackass has been killed r.i.p to you ryan dunn and passenger my thoughts are with the families of there loss. may others learn from the mistakes from drinking and driving can do to your judgment behind the wheel of any car drive safetly and drink free. when someone gets killed its not just families affected everyone is affected as you could be walking down a road and get hit by a drunk driver. lets hope everyone who drives learns this .

Winning    

LOL

Win, win everywhere and it is glorious.

Firstly, we have an article about a moron who demolished his luxury sports car while drunk, who also is apparently "famous" for "sticking a toy car up his ass" , and then we have halfwits (or tweens, I hope..) calling the guy a "star" and a "great guy"

Then to top it all off, we have your typical butthurt ****** bitching about something hardly using english, which of course derails itself into a rant about RACISM (HAHAHA), then another ****** starts posting and invariably it turns into a IM TUFFER THAN YOUS rooster strut. HAHAHAH

GLORIOUS
