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.

Dunn was driving the car. TMZ is always last to report anything.

Simple minded children? I'm pretty sure there were plenty of adults that enjoyed the program too, which is how it got it's fame and it's ratings. And I can pretty much guarantee I'm much more intelligent than you can ever hope to be, watching a television show has nothing to do with intellect. If anyone was dumb enough to get influenced by the program, that was their problem, and clearly your aunt and daughter's. Regardless of how he made a living, he was a human being, and an entertaining one at that. People usually show some respect when someone else has passed away, once you grow up, you'll understand.

If he was drinking and driving than this idiot got what he deserved. My condolences to the passenger's family.

I'm sorry for his family, but, I'm also not surprised.

I used to say when these guys started doing this show, it won't be very funny when they are in their 30's.....talk about Jack-aSSes and clearly the whole gang thought of themselves as dare devils who couldn't possibly get hurt.

Hate to say it, but, I have a feeling we are going to find out he was drunk and stupid behind the wheel, and doing a show like Jacka$$ will make one feel invinceible.

Maybe Johnny Knoxville should think long and hard before condoning a another stunt or show huh?

Someone might want to mention in the article that he was on a new show called "Proving Ground."

Thats a shame man. Rest in peace Dunn. You will be missed brother. Jackass will never be the same without you. I hope the rest of the crew keeps it together.

If he was drinking and driving, or stupid enough to get into a car with someone who was drunk then I have no sympathy. Even a Jackass should use his common sense.
