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.

Can't believe some of the comments here. The young man has died and you are trash talking him on a public news site. He was one of the best guys on the Jackass show, and in real life. We shared drinks together at the bar many times and went to car shows and whatnot, he was a very nice person in real life. Liked to live on the wild side, and thats a good thing today...so many people are *******.

Ah yes, he left a legacy of, um, sitting on a toy car in a very special way?

or

Drunk drivers can kill themselves; that is their choice. It is difficult to feel sorry for someone who wields a 3500lb. car as their weapon, while drunk, while speeding.

or

Toy car up his rectum? Obviously, his Porsche sought revenge for all toy cars.

You sure this isn't fake, as TMZ always makes up complete bull****? Surely, MTV would've covered this first and TMZ seems the ONLY website with this 'info'.

If alcohol was involved and if he was going as fast as reported then he deserved death for risking the lives of other motorists.

Really? How long can you really cheat death and kick karma in the balls? Each of these guys really should have been dead a hundred times over by now....

I'm truly sorry that he met such a horrible end. But drinking and then driving? Truly a Jackass stunt. Hope that booze wasn't a contributing factor but it looks like it was.
