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.

He was the impressionable little brother who only wanted to be like his big brother and his friends.
That's what led to his death.
It's the mentality of that show He was on.

RIP buddy. This was the 322 bypass, not Rt 322 in Delaware County. I know people that raced there dating back to the 1970's, on a weekly basi********* speeds of 150mph+. Something bad happened

Look at this..... This really piss me the F@$K off, had this been an African American you idiots on here would be all over him, his race and the F@$kn fact he was drinking just hours before and showing it off by tweetn pics of it. But because he is/was white all the comments except 1 was positive and RIP. I refuse to be like all of you so I will wish his family my prayers cause they're the ones suffering right now, but in the same breath I will say thank GOD the idiots killed themselves and not an innocent person as the case always is. Why don't you all go back and look at the post ex: Sean Kingston and see how RACIST you so called HUMANS are.

Sure glad he didn't hit an innocent driver with carload of passengers, and kill them too.

I guess we'll never know his BA as fire tends to burns away the evidence.

Sorry for his family though.
