‘Jackass’ Star Ryan Dunn Killed In Car Crash

Ryan Dunn, one of the stars of MTV‘s “Jackass” films and TV series, was killed in a fiery car crash on a Pennsylvania highway early Monday, police said.

A passenger in Dunn’s 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 was also killed, but investigators have not positively identified the body, according to the police reports.

The red-bearded Dunn, 34, was famous for his pranks and dangerous stunts on the show, which evolved into a successful film franchise.

West Goshen, Pennsylvania, police were called to the wreck scene on State Route 322 at 2:30 a.m., the police report said.

“Speed may have been a contributing factor to the accident,” police said, although the investigation is in its preliminary stages.

MTV issued a short statement through its Twitter account Monday morning: “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.”

“Jackass” star Johnny Knoxville tweeted his message Monday morning: “Today I lost my brother Ryan Dunn. My heart goes out to his family and his beloved Angie. RIP Ryan, I love you buddy.”
