Ryan Dunn

Bam Margera's Morbid Death Prediction

6/23/2011 6:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Five years before Ryan Dunn was killed in a violent car crash, Bam Margera predicted the "Jackass" star's death in eerily specific detail -- claiming, "He's gonna eat it one of these times [in a car accident]."


Bam -- along with several cast members from his MTV show "Viva La Bam" -- made the grim prediction while recording the DVD commentary for Season 5 back in 2006.

According to the commentary, Dunn was involved in SEVERAL car accidents over the years -- but Bam's mom claimed, "He'll never learn his lesson."

Another "Bam" cast member added, "I have [Ryan] in the death pool ... for death by vehicle."

In this specific episode, Ryan races Bam's Lamborghini in a limousine -- and after Ryan loses, Bam claims, "[the limo] blew up just like every other f**king car he has."

He chose to drink and drive...when will these spoiled, rich, "Hollywood" types learn? Now, his passenger's family has to bury their loved one because of someone else's selfishness. Yes, I said it....I have seen far too many young people, families, children, etc. killed because of those who think they can drink like some alcoholic and then an ER nurse I have seen the devastation it causes way too many sorry for his family that he died but he did make the more sorry for his passenger's family...I am sure I will catch hell for these comments but the truth is the truth..

Not a lot of discussion about the person he murdered while driving drunk at over 130 mph.

Perhaps RIPs could go to his victim that was the passenger in the car.

I'm thankful the selfish drunk driver didn't kill a family in a mini van with his reckless driving.

So his grim death was entirely predictable. Remind me again, i give a sh*t why? Oh that's right i don't.

That's kind of weird I guess? RIP Dunn, loved all the memories you left behind and hopefully this incident can dissuade others from making the smae mistake you made.


Hopefully it will but i doubt it. Other tragedies didn't dissuade him from driving like a jackass and i doubt his will either.

RIP the dude in the passenger seat, Dunn, meh whatever...

Sounds like "fair game" investigative journalism to me. Investigate the rest of these jackasses driving records too.

Stop calling the passenger a victim. He is not. He went with him willingly and I assume was just as drunk. He is not a victim he is a partner in crime. If he wasnt drunk like him then why let him drive or get in with him. No they were having fun and joy riding together. I feel bad for both families but he is not a victim.

He didn't earn enough money from the TV series and Jackass films to pay for a cab ?

He sure ate it, but it wasn't the car that caused his death. It was his decision to drink irresponsibly that buried him and his innocent passenger.

The real tragedy is that he seemed to have no concern his reckless driving could easily kill innocent passengers or bystanders.

His obsession with risky choices took another's life ... but he easily could have hit other vehicles causing even more senseless death and injury.

Maybe that was the reason Bam was crying hysterically in the clip we saw yesterday. He predicted how Ryan would die and it happen that way.

He might feel a lot of guilt over this thinking "if I hadn't said that he would still be alive".....but Bam should know it's not his fault....Ryan was going to drink and drive fast whether he made that statement or not.
