Ryan Dunn, the “Jackass” star who once inserted a toy car into his rectum, died last night in a car accident when he drove his Porsche off a wooded Pennsylvania road, killing himself and an unidentified passenger. The details sound pretty gruesome:
He did have a passenger with him at the time of the crash but both bodies were burnt so badly that the second person has not been identified yet. Ryan was identified by some of his tattoos that he has on his chest and a few patches of facial hair.
Rt 322 isn’t a major highway in the west chester area and isn’t lit very well. He was driving his porsche when he lost control slammed into a tree and his porsche burst into flames. [96.1 Morning Freak Show]
Dunn tweeted a picture of himself earlier that night that showed him holding a beer, but there’s no word on whether alcohol influenced the crash. Regardless, the pictures of the charred wreckage are sobering:
I was never a huge “Jackass” fan, but I always liked Dunn, who seemed gentler and more of a decent human than the rest of the “Jackass” crew. This is a terrible tragedy, especially considering how many times I’ve wished that Steve-O and Bam Margera would die in a fiery car wreck.
