Jackass star Ryan Dunn is killed in high speed crash

Given the crazy nature by which they lived it was perhaps inevitable that one of the “Jackass” cast would eventually wind up on the ‘died too young’ list. Ryan Dunn, the unofficial 4th member of the Margera family, was killed early this morning after his Porsche left the road at high speed before colliding with a tree and erupting into flames killing Dunn and his passenger.

He and the as yet unnamed passenger had been socialising with friends at Barnaby’s of America in West Chester a few hours prior to the accident and is reported to have consumed three Miller Lites and three ‘girly’ shots over a four hour period, which according to a friend who said he was “not too drunk to drive”.

Police at West Goshen reported that Dunn was identified by an eye witness on the scene who recognised his tattoos as he was pulled from the wreckage.

It was at around 2:30 a.m. on Route 322 when the accident happened and police state that the vehicle was travelling significantly fast enough that it hurtled through 40 metres of forest before hitting the tree.

Their statement read, “Preliminary investigation revealed that speed may have been a contributing factor to the accident.”

The manager of Barnaby’s told NBC Philadelphia that “Ryan didn’t appear drunk before he left” at 2 a.m.

Often seen at the Margera house, Ryan was considered part of the family as highlighted by April Margera who said, “He’s just the sweetest guy you’d ever want to know and he would do anything for you.”

She and husband Phil Margera paid a simple yet tearful tribute to Dunn, whom they considered a son.

“I know the entire ‘Jackass’ family is devastated and all of West Chester is devastated,” she said.

According to April, Dunn was renowned for driving too fast and she was often telling him to slow down a little. He had been involved in a bad accident a little over ten years ago but it seems that didn’t deter him from putting his foot down.

“He drove too fast and I yelled at him all the time about that,” said April.

The Jackass crew have ben largely unreachable but Johnny Knoxville tweeted, “Today I lost my brother Ryan Dunn. My heart goes out to his family and his beloved Angie. RIP Ryan, I love you buddy.”

MTV followed that up with a similar message which simply read, “We’re deeply saddened by the passing of a member of the MTV family, Ryan Dunn. Our hearts and thoughts are with his friends and family.”

Bam Margera, Dunn’s best friend is currently in Arizona and has not yet made a statement because he is too devastated by the tragic accident.

While his candle burned brightly, Dunn gave us laughs at his own expense and it is a sad loss; sad that he lived so dangerously and perished because of it, and that not only his light has been extinguished so suddenly but that the lives of all those affected have grown a little darker in his passing.
