TMZ writes that co-star Bam Margera’s mother (and Jackass co-star herself) April confirmed the news to the site herself.
They cite: ‘Dunn and an unidentified person both died in the crash which happened around 3 a.m. at Route 322 and New Street in West Goshen Township. It’s unclear who was driving the car.’
The car reportedly caught fire in the incident after what looked like a night out with friends. The star tweeted a picture of him (below) and two mates just hours before the crash.
After coming to the public’s attention in 2000 in the original Jackass, Ryan went on to feature in all of the movies, as well as spin-off shows featuring Bam Margera - Viva La Bam and Bam’s Unholy Union.
Dunn will be remembered for many of his Jackass stunts including the ill-fated ‘golf buggy flip’ in which Johnny Knoxville landed on his neck – but thankfully wasn’t seriously hurt and shoving a toy car up his butt in Jackass: The Movie and going to get to get an X-ray.
So far there’s been no comment from his co-stars.
He did unspeakable things all in the name of entertainment but he sure as hell made us laugh. RIP Ryan.
