Sad news. Ryan Dunn, well-known as a member of the Jackass crew, died early this morning in a car accident. He was only 34. I grew up watching his crazy antics on Jackass and had the chance to meet him last fall. He was a really nice and funny dude. RIP Ryan.

“”Jackass” star Ryan Dunn was killed early Monday morning when his Porsche flew over a guardrail in West Goshen, Pa., slammed into a tree and burst into flames, according to local police.

Dunn’s passenger — who police have not identified — was also killed.

Dunn, 34, was identified by his tattoos, according to a witness who was on the scene when the bodies were pulled from the wreckage.

The one-car accident happened on Route 322 around 2:30 a.m., according to Officer Geiger with West Goshen police. The Porsche shot through about 40 yards of trees before it hit the last one and exploded into flames, according to police. The police press release reads, “Preliminary investigation revealed that speed may have been a contributing factor to the accident.””
