34-yr-old ‘Jackass’ star Ryan Dunn dies in car crash
New York: Ryan Dunn, a co-star of the ‘Jackass’ movie franchise, has died. He was 34.
Dunn was killed early Monday in a single-car accident in Pennsylvania.
"Today I lost my brother Ryan Dunn," the New York Post quoted ‘Jackass’ star and co-creator Johnny Knoxville as saying on Twitter.
"RIP Ryan, I love you buddy," Knoxville added.
Police said Dunn crashed his 2007 Porsche while driving in West Goshen, about 35 miles west of Philadelphia, according to TMZ.com.
Dunn and his passenger, who has not yet been identified, "died as a result of injuries sustained in the accident," said police.
Dunn tweeted a photo of himself drinking with friend’s just hours before a car crash that left him dead in Pennsylvania.
West Goshen police said Dunn``s Porsche was found in a wooded area off the road, "fully engulfed in flames." They said speed might have been a contributing factor in the accident. An investigation into the crash is ongoing.
Dunn appeared in all three seasons of the "Jackass" TV series on MTV and all three movies, most recently "Jackass 3D" in 2010. He was also a host of the series "Proving Ground," which premiered June 14 on cable network G4.
