Jackass will never be the same again. If you’re one of those that took to the humor of the famed Jackass movies, then this will certainly be a sad read for all of you. Ryan Dunn died in a car crash Monday morning of June 20. The 34 year old daredevil and star of Jackass was in his 2007 Porche 911 GT3 when it was found off the road in the woods in West Goshen Township, Pennsylvania. Police reports have placed an unidentified passenger along with Dunn who both suffered fatal injuries from the accident at around 3am.
Word has it the accident may have been speed related but cops can’t confirm if alcohol was involved. However, Dunn’s twitter has a picture of him drinking with friends late Sunday.
Indeed truly a sad day in the MTV office with the tragic loss of a beloved MTV family member. Ryan Dunn has been with MTV for more than a decade. In a statement, MTV Networks Music/Films Group president Van Toffler expressed his deepest condolences to the family and friends of Ryan Dunn. “ The Jackass brother will never be the same.”
His brand of humor has won many hearts with the way he made people laugh. Just like that old middle school friend you had, who never seemed to tire of his enthusiastic approach to life. One of Dunn’s infamous scenes in Jackass 2002, was of him shoving a toy car up his bum. I know, not many find that pretty funny but for those who do, Ryan Dunn will surely be missed.
