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.

You mean acting like a "Jackass" everywhere you go doesn't have a happy ending? Really?

MTV - you really disappoint me, you made it seem like being a "Jackass" really was a cool thing to do. Guess not.

If you have sympathy for these guys, think again.

These guys, and people like them on TV, are the reason my aunt got mugged by a bunch of white teenage thrill seekers. The reason why some kid thought it was cool to puke on demand at my local grocery store and scare the crap out of my 2 year old daughter. These guys are a drain on society and actively participate in the "stupification" of our youth and many immature adults.

Why wouldn't a guy who gets paid to stick things up his ass and ***** in an antique store and mutilate their genitals - why would these people think twice about drinking and driving?

Sympathy for a group of people who led to the degeneration of our society? Hmmmmmmmmm.....

One less danger to society out of the way where he can't be a harm to anyone else. Good riddance.

Common Sense     

Truly Sad n Sorry for you familys' loss(es). Remebering the the great times (sometimes) makes the sadness 'not so tough', and we all know there are way too many geat times with Dunn, it's forever preserved in film..... "taken too young, played hard while we had him, and we should learn from the mistakes." Please don't drink n drive. Deepest regrets to whomever else was in the vehicle, and or involved in wreck.....

RIP Dunn. Met him in Philly while I was there attending college. He was a cool guy. He lived a pretty fun full life for the years he was here I'd say.

Funny guy will be missed.

TMZ why don't you spend some time reading Radaronline. You write a title Dunn dead like you're a 6 year old and all you can say about him is he shoved a toy car up his rectum.

Radar showed some respect for his family by writing a proper heading and listing his various roles instead of talking about the toy car.
