The crash scene (via subewl)

WEST GOSHEN, Pa. - Fox 29 News has learned that Ryan Dunn of MTV's "Jackass" series died in an early morning crash Monday in Chester County, Pa.

Police in West Goshen confirmed a fatal accident occurred but were not immediately releasing any other details.

The crash occurred in West Goshen Township and kept Route 322 closed between New Street and Pottstown Pike for much of the morning. Motorists were advised to use Ashbridge Street to avoid the closure before the road reopened around 9:30 a.m.

Fox 29 News spoke to the mother of "Jackass" star Bam Margera, who said she has been told Dunn, 34, was killed in the wreck.

Margera's mother also said an unidentified second person died in the crash, which happened around 3 a.m. She said she did not know who was driving the car, and there may have been a third occupant.-[Fox 29 Philadelphia]

Ryan Dunn, or whoever runs the unconfirmed @ryandunntv Twitter, posted a picture of Ryan and two friends drinking late last night. It was Ryan's final Tweet (though oddly enough another unconfirmed, but "official" Twitter page - that doesn't have many followers, says that Ryan Dunn posted at 10:30 AM today). RIP Ryan Dunn. We all thought you were invincible.

Ryan has a brand new show called G4's Proving Ground which just premiered on June 14th. To promote it he posted a "Celebrity Playlist" to YouTube. Watch the promo, posted 18 days ago, and other videos below...

Obviously, nobody ever wishes anybody dead, but drunk driving really is a jackass thing to do. Sadly, he appears to have killed his friend with his irresponsible jackass behavior too. Very sad.

Doesn't matter what you think about the surrounding circumstances. Some young guy with lots of friends and family is DEAD! Just show some respect to those affected by this travesty or don't write anything at all. RIP RD!

i think the fact that he's tweeting pix of himself drunk and then he gets in a car and kills himself and an innocent passenger kinda undermines the whole 'he was a good dude' thing. no, he was an irresponsible jerk. don't drink and drive!!

Kind of like when Steve Irwin died.

@2:44pm....How dare you equate Clarence with this dude??

Posted by Anonymous | June 20, 2011 4:01 PM

ryan dunn was the coolest in the jackass crew . next to johnny and steve-o . he shouldnt have died and neither anybody else . so dont have wishful thinking about "it shouldve been bam" or shit like that . it shouldnt have been anybody . and dont assume he was driving , because it obviously says in the article that no one knows who was driving , so dont assume . and to the people thatre talking shit about ryan are faggots , seriously . the dudes dead . at least show him some respect . how would you feel if someone said something rude about your dead family member ? thats what i thought . so shut the fuck up and pay some respect for the guy who once entertained us on "jackass" .

Posted by akoni koki | June 20, 2011 5:55 PM

While it is sad that this guy is dead, I can assure you never entertained me. People who watch Jackass, I hate to say it, are jackasses.

The word "legend" is hereby retired. Along with "genius," "hero," and "killed it."

loved Jackass! it made my night when watching it! RIP Ryan... I would have loved to be part of the crew and have sweet friends like u did :)

Posted by lelo | June 21, 2011 2:54 PM

the people that are talking bad about ryan in a bad way and expecally the person who is talking about wanting to see him crashing in 3D i would like to see you have a boxing match with bam in 3D that would be funny wouldnt it so you can just go set on a ten foot pole for all i care
the only reason i ever even turn on the tv is to watch jackass

Cruel Fate is that Bam Margera is still around. Dunn was one of the best guys from Jackass.

Posted by Anonymous | June 22, 2011 4:13 PM

RIP DUNN!!! Always will be remembered and still held on our hearts as one of the craziest, smartest, better lookin of the crew... Live long and prosper!!

Ryan Dunn siempre lo recordaremos por sus tonterias

Posted by cristian | July 15, 2011 4:39 PM

You made it your life to make other people to laugh all i say is thank you and may u rest in peace

Posted by Anonymous | May 7, 2012 4:15 PM

Yes Ryan was too young when he passed away but i mean money will always transform a person these people, the "jackass" crew all get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars just to do stupid things, and people paid individually to see them do it so this comes back to how responsible they are...which their not and accidents happen and somethimes tragedies like ryan, drinking and then driving how responsible is that, let this be a lesson to all you wanna be jackasses out there, play your cards out right and nothing like this will ever happen

Ryan Dunn was a nice guy. I met and talked and drank with him at "THE NOTE" a bar in West Chester p.a. He loved his fans. r.I.p. Ryan Dunn aka Random Hero...U r definitely missed.... :(
