Jackass star Ryan Dunn killed in car crash

All that was left of Ryan Dun's Porsche 911. Sad.

Reality TV and Jackass star Ryan Dunn was killed in a car accident in the early hours of this morning.

The 34-year-old died in a one car collision near his home in West Goshen, Pennsylvania at around 2.30am following a night out with friends.

Upon arrival to the scene, police found a 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 ‘off the road and in the woods that was fully engulfed in flames.’

Dunn was the registered owner of the vehicle and was driving it at the time according to police.

It is reported that his body was so badly burnt that he had to be identified by his distinctive tattoos.

An official report states that ‘preliminary investigation revealed that speed may have been a contributing factor to the accident.’

Just hours before the accident, Dunn tweeted a picture of himself with two male friends, all of whom were holding what appeared to be alcoholic beverages.

Witnesses claim that Dunn drank ‘at least’ three light beers and three shots between 10.30pm and 2.10am at Barnaby’s of America bar before the accident.

“We are devastated by the tragic loss of Ryan Dunn – a beloved member of the MTV family for more than a decade,” President of MTV Networks Music/Films Group Van Toffler said in a statement.

“He made us all laugh and had the tireless enthusiastic approach to life of your favourite middle school friend,” the statement continued.

“Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with Ryan’s family and friends. The Jackass brotherhood will never be the same.”

Ryan Dunn rose to fame as part of the stunt crew for the MTV show Jackass, which ran from 2000 to 2002.

He then featured in Bam Margera’s Viva La Bam from 2003 to 2006 as well as all three of the Jackass movies.
