Rest In Peace
Ryan Dunn died in a car crash early Monday morning, and his death has already been confirmed by fellow Jackass star Bam Margera's mother. The 34-year-old was into stunts and pranks, but it doesn't sound like the car crash had anything to do with his usual horseplay.
It was reported that Dunn died on Route 322 and New Street in West Goshen, Pennsylvania. An unidentified person also died in the crash.
Dunn was tweeting last night before the fatal accident, and it does hint about what went down. Dunn was pictured in his TwitPic with two friends, all holding cups in what looks like a bar. Dunn's head is down in the shot, and he's gesturing with a cigarette in one hand.
Dunn was not only featured in the Jackass films, but, according to IMDB, also had two films in post-production: Welcome to the Bates Motel and Booted.
This is a photo of the wrecked vehicle:
The story is still developing.
Thoughts and prayers to the Dunn family, as well as those who were like family, including the Jackass crew. Rest in peace, Ryan. May the memory of all the things you stuck in your ass and other shennanigans live on forever.
