Jackass star Ryan Dunn dies at the age of 34

Jun. 20, 2011by:

Ryan Dunn, one of the stars of the JACKASS movies and TV series, died earlier this morning in a car crash in his home state of Pennsylvania. He was only 34-years-old.

According to early reports, Dunn and a passenger in the vehicle who's name has not yet been released, both died in a one-car crash on Route 322 in West Goshen, Pennsylvania, near where Dunn and friend Bam Margera lived. Dunn reportedly died instantly while the passenger died before rescue crews arrived.

Although he never reached the heights in terms of celebrity that his "Jackass" partners Johnny Knoxville or Steve-O did, Ryan Dunn was probably my favorite of the bunch. There was something about the way he carried himself, that there was no schtick; no act (whereas it seems some of the crew were trying especially hard to be the persona).

Dunn was introduced to the world of "Jackass" through Margera with whom he had filmed the popular underground series CKY ("Camp Kill Yourself"). Dunn and Margera just last year premiered "Bam's World Domination" that served as a travel show of sorts.

You know seriously, I saw Ebert's tweet... what a fucking tool. Even if he WAS drunk, which none of us know even you crack investigators who have inspected the photo 45 times with a magnifying glass, this guy's family and friends are all grieving. Show some goddamn respect for the people left behind.

If Dunn was drunk, it was a huge mistake that cost him his life and that of another person. But we don't know. Ebert doensn't need to post some POS "zinger" on twitter the day after it happened.

I smell hypocrisy. If you heard about a random average Joe killing himself in the same manner (drinking and driving) you probably wouldn't have thought of his family and made a comment, even if only to to yourself, like Ebert's. I know I would.

If he was drinking and driving

Which his tweet leads me to believe he was, I find it difficult to be as upset as everyone else. If not then it's truly upsetting, but if so, he knew the possible consequences of that action and made a conscious choice to ignore that.

Couldn't believe this terrible news this morning. It's so weird cause you feel like you know these guys cause we've watched them on Viva La Bam, CKY and Jackass, and for anyone who's a fan of them knows that him and Bam and the Margera's were SUPER close so I'm really feeling bad for those guys especially Bam, even though I've never met the guy. I don't think I've felt this bad for someone passing away that I never even knew before. The guy risked his life and body to make us all laugh and from

Way too young to die, man. I just watched the first episode of "Proving Ground" on my DVR yesterday morning, and was happy to see Dunn in something new. Him and Knoxville are the only two out of that bunch that I not only could stand, but actually enjoyed watching. His ability to entertain was effortless.

RIP Ryan

That was a good insight on his non-schtick persona. Seemed like a good guy. Jackass was king back in highschool, so it almost feels like hearing about a class mate that passed away. Too bad.

Now they're saying he was doing over 130 mph while double the legal alcohol limit? I'm sorry the guy lost his life and all, but it was all his own doing. I'm just glad nobody else on the road got hurt or killed...

Agree with Guy

Im really sad he is gone but I can't feel as bad as I wanted to or did at first. They showed a twitter pic of him drinking before the crash and IF this is the case...

Could have taken other peoples lives as well and that is just irresponsible

There were two bodies in the car, one is yet to be identified.

It could literally just be a genuine accident with Dunn as passenger and a sober driver, I don't want to jump to conclusions, but it doesn't look that way is all.

Sad day, as far as I know the first of the Jackass/cky group to pass. Even for people who live somewhat on the edge, it shocking to see them go.

As a follow-up on my previous comment...

I left a comment earlier saying that Dunn and Margera used to frequent bars at West Chester and pick up college girls. Well, turns out he was at Barnaby's last night - which is the bar my friend worked at and used to always see him at. Crazy stuff.

Sad, but...

...he and Margara used to come to West Chester University in PA all the time. One of my friends frequently saw them at bars and she said they'd pick up college girls all the time by telling them they were in Jackass. So he probably had more sex than most of us, so I feel like his life was pretty decent.

Truly Sad News

Really sad news. It's always hard to see someone who just wanted to make people laugh pass away at such a young age.

My thoughts go out to his family and friends. And also towards everyone associated with "Jackass".

People saying he was drinking and driving are jumping to conclusions. First of all, we don't know if he was the driver, and a picture of a guy with ONE drink does not mean he was over the limit even if he was drinking. Let's not assume something no one knows is true.
