Today is truly a dark day for JACKASS fans everywhere (myself included). Jackass star Ryan Dunn has died in a car crash early Monday morning (June 20th) in Pennsylvania. Celebrity gossip website TMZ has confirmed Dunn’s passing through fellow Jackass co-star Bam Margera's mother.
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. We're told the car caught fire in the crash -- and hours later, a tow truck was called to the scene to remove the charred wreckage.
Dunn had just posted pictures of himself parting with friends on his Twitter page prior to the accident by only a few hours and seemed to had been having a good time. Police believe that speeding may have been a factor in the crash but have not confirmed if alcohol played a factor in it. What’s even more distressing is that this week’s episode of Dunn’s new reality series “Proving Ground” on the G4 network was pulled off of it’s schedule shortly after his death was made public (talk about a dick move), leaving the fate of the series and it’s production completely in limbo. Only time will tell what will become of the show if G4 does in fact decide to proceed with keeping the show alive on their network without Dunn as host.
