Ryan Dunn Dead

'Jackass' Star

Dies in Car Crash

6/20/2011 8:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Jackass" star Ryan Dunn died in a car crash in Pennsylvania early this morning ... TMZ has confirmed with Bam Margera's mother.

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.

It makes me sick when people say mean things about Ryan. No body even knos what happened. They can guess but Ryan Zack, and the man up stairs are the only three that would ever be able to say what really happened. Noone even knos if he was drunk or not. So instead of jumping to conclusions, and talking bad about him have some respect for the both of them, their family & friends. Dont throw stones when you live in a glass house your self. Im sure everyone their selfs or someone they kno has had a few to drink, them drive. Dont think your better because your bad mouthing him, when really your not. Ryan was an amazing person, who loved to have fun & live his life. He and all the Jackass cast members has braught intertainment into our homes for years. Ryan will be greatly missed.

Great comment Chelsea! It's such a sin that on an article about a great person's unfortunate and untimely death, people feel the need to insult. Despite how it happened, it wasn't a premeditated situation nor did he want to die or to take any lives. So people should RESPECT the loss of another human being and the fact that a GREAT number of people are do you think his family would feel if they read all you people's MEAN comments?!?! Keep those to your private conversations, not the world wide web.... RIP Dunn <3

*clap* *clap*

This mofo deserved what he got and I am happy hes dead. People, this man was DRUNK and he was driving RECKLESS. This man KILLED his so called "friend". How could you feel sorry for him? He took a life just because he probably thought he was some hot sh*t driving 140mph and drunk. Well look at him now...idiot... Good thing he died, he just saved that particular county a boatload in hospital, court, and prison costs. Imagine if he hit a mini-van filled with children, would you all still be crying over his death? Get real. This world needs less MORONS like this jackass (pun intended lol)
