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."

bam is such a drama queen, he knew what a ****ty driver the dude was and then acts like it's some huge surprise that Ryan got completely hammered then jumped into his 400 hp porsche and drove 140 mph.. Fame and fortune killed him, if he didn't have that porsche, he would be drunk driving around in some beater.

Screw Bam! He was such a great friend to ryan, really? Lets review the facts Ryan already had a previous DUI and since they say the avg. jackass drives drunk 250 times before getting caught where was Bam all those times. Not saying not a cool or smart thing to do, taking his car keys away. Bam and his friends just made jokes about it. To Bad he didnt smash into Bam on the road not killing him but leaving him with a lifetime of bills and pain and suffering instead, then I wonder what Bam would be saying.

Im glad he is dead! I wa***** by a drunk driver and on this day if you look at hher fb page it shows her proudly drinking in half of her pics. DISGUSTING.

We need better drunk driving laws in this country! there a joke!
unfortanely many of our politicions have dui's like George W. Bush, we call it an accident but its a crime! You hurt someone with a gun you go to jail, do it drunk with a 2 ton weapon, oh it was an accident and they get a 250 fine in Florida a few months without there license and community service, wow and as the victim i live with a broken body and end up bankrupt, yep that seems like justice.

oh and for all of you who say just take away a drunks license, it doesnt work, they continue to drive, go to any dui court and you see that, they need to be locked up period. they are a danger to everyone on the road, they cannot be trusted, nor do they learn from being busted with todays crappy laws, most people with dui's will complain about all the money they spent on lawyers and fees, but not get what they did was stupid and dangerous. Let them sit in prison for a year and think about it. Let them be the ones crying not some innocent person.

I have never heard of any of these guys, and I know even if I had I would have never encouraged that kind of behavior, by watching the show...I have to agree with Roger many people out there fighting for their lives, and these idiots just throw theirs away...

If somebody is a crazy driver and has a fast car it's not all that hard to predict. A crazy friend of mine bought an 04 GTO and the first thing I thought was this is not good. He crashed it and died within 6 months of buying it.

Perhaps Dunn is glad that you live with a broken body and ended up bankrupt. Guess your fingers were not affected in the broken body parts since you can type. And being glad someone is dead....well that is just sad. Too bad people can't be glad for you.

You people who are mad because another life was taken need to get over it zach decided to get in the car. I'm sure he drank and drove too. U all act like u have never made bad decisions in life. dont blame ryan for having zach in the car if zach hadnt of wanted to go home then dunn would have still been in the bar. he asked dunn to give him a ride home he wasnt forced in. he knowingly got into a car with a drunk driver. I am sure he was egging him on to go fast anyway. Noone knows the story in the car we just know the beginning and the end. be respectful and realize 2 people lost their young lives. xxoo

a drunk is a drunk is a drunk.
it's a selfish life, but how would he know
he was a drunk
An out of control drunk
Jails, institutions, and death
It's nothing new, he is not unique, he just had a lot of support

to irish curl:

get hit by a drunk driver and see what happens to your life or lose your parents, spouse or kids to a drunk and then you can say something to me, cuz i bet you will have a different tune then

As for Dunn being glad i live with abroken body he probably would laugh cuz he was a dumb selfish jerk that only cared about himself.

i apoligize i just saw your earlier post. However you got in the car with a drunk, so we know your stupid, i was sober and hit by a stranger. I hope someone robs your house and takes all your stuff, shoots you and then tell me if we should feel bad for the robber.

Screw everyone hating on ryan, some people just like to live on the edge and thats what made these guys who they are. Half of you guys are probably such pansies you wouldn't have even done the trampolene stunts in the CKY videos. Oh and BTW TMZ THE VIDEO IS ALREADY BROKEN!!!!! Its only been up for 20 minutes Who uploads your video a retarded monkey????"

thats great he likes to live his life on the edge and all but not when he's putting other innocent people's life at risk with his behavior. You wanna push yourself into a curb in a shopping cart or go mountain climbing or do other extreme stuff thats fine, but not driving your car 130mph while drunk. Thats just a douchebag move.
