The MTV "Jackass" crew's silly, often dangerous stunts, have shocked, disgusted, and entertained us for years. Today, however, the Jackass crew mourns the loss of one of its core members, Ryan Dunn, who died in an early-morning accident today.

Driving his Porsche on Route 322 in West Goshen, Pennsylvania around 2:30 this morning, Dunn's car left the road, flew over a guard rail, and struck a tree, bursting into flames. An unidentified passenger also died in the crash.

Dunn, 34, was also a member of Bam Margera's CKY Crew, and also appeared in several movies and television shows.

  1. This is awful news! I am a big fan of the Jackass crew.

  2. that sucks

  3. Rest in peace Ryan Dunn. You've entertained myself and the world for years.

  4. My condolences to his family.

  5. Rest in Peace, Ryan. Today is a black day for Jackass fans everywhere.

  6. BooHoo. What a loss to pop culture :eyeroll:
    Thanks for not killing any innocents while out driving drunk in your sportscar, although the tree will probably die, and that's not very "earthfriendly".
    Ryan Dunn, enemy of the planet.

  7. I guess only "positive" comment are allowed, seeing as how my commnet that alcohol was involved, and we should be grateful that innocents were not killed, was removed.

  8. 110mph on any highway, not only carries a lot of momentum, but a lot of responsibility. If on top of that you are driving under influence, then there's little difference between this driver driving a Porsche and a Kamikaze pilot from 2WW flying a Zero airplane. I think the community was lucky that such an accident only produced two fatalities.

  9. Turns out that his blood alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit when he decided to take the Porsche GT3 out for a drive. He hit the the guard rail doing about 140 mph after leaving the bar! Of course the Bar is saying that he was not drunk.
