Jackass Star Ryan Dunn Dies In Car Crash

Jackass Star Ryan Dunn Dies In Car Crash

Ryan Dunn, one of the cast members of Jackass, was killed in a devastating car accident along with another passenger.

Dunn’s Porsche 911 GT3 slammed into a guardrail at 3am in a small Pennsylvania town, leaving behind little more than a charred frame. According to cops, the car was completely on fire when they arrived, and both bodies were burned beyond recognition. They also believe that the car was going over 110 miles per hour at the time of the crash.

Dunn was alleged to have been drinking beforehand, through a picture he posted to his Twitter account. One of his stunts on Jackass was hiding a toy car up his rectum.

    Well he was a “jackass” thats what you get for driving drunk and thats what his passenger gets for being just as stupid by getting in that car!

    Sry but my god when will people learn…

  • Autumn S

    Hey Daniel C. way to be a complete and total ass about someone losing there life. yes they shouldn’t have been in a car but they were and shit happens. Can’t u just have compassion for there families and friends instead of having to post a dumbass remark.

  • shawna

    im sooooo sorry for all his ffreinds and family, god speed

  • Ryan

    Terrible loss and as far as Daniel C goes, way to be a completely uncompassionate and classless asshole. The man lost his life and many people lost a friend and you feel the need to post a comment like that. You must be pretty pathetic that your comment is all you take away from all of it

  • fat pat

    ya Daniel C who do u think u are do u think ur perfect. cause news flash u arnt no one is. and to his freinds and family i have lost freinds to the same thing i Know what u Are Going threw

  • J K

    Those guys got into the car knowingly intoxicated and paid the price, Daniel C is the only mature one out of the group and so far anyone else commenting on it are treating it like he has no reason to point it out. Do you know how many people are killed by drunk drivers every year? Did you forget that DUI is a SERIOUS CRIME not to be taken lightly for these reasons? What if there were other cars on the road and they died too, would you still feel sad for Ryan Dunn when his DUI took his life and that of infants and children?

    The reason why Daniel C’s response is mature is because his perspective on what happened in regards to Dunn and passenger isn’t going to waiver one bit if they took out more people or not. Ryan Dunn and passenger were fools and although they didn’t deserve what they got, they asked for it and got it anyways. In reality, these people driving under the influence can take out your family, your children, your friends so just think about it for one moment that Ryan Dunn killed 2 of those that were most precious to you. Would you still feel sorry for him or now would you piece together the crime DUI really is?

    Knock Daniel all you want but maybe when you grow up or open your eyes you’ll realize that drunk driving is no laughing matter and those who “fall victim” to it and get behind the wheel are not innocent. The moment you turn the key you endanger yourself and everyone around you. Wake up. This guy paid the price for doing something stupid, illegal and devoid of any moral code. That is how he ended his life but more importantly, it is what he chose.



  • Eastwest49

    Ryan Dunn was a weaponized fool who has permanently broken the hearts of his family and loved ones, and that of his companion. Compassion yes. Idiot compassion no. His most lasting moment? A toy car up his ass.

  • kurtis

    “hiding a car up his rectum” related much?

  • DeadCelebrity

    People are calling this a “tragedy.” How is it a tragedy? For something to be considered tragic, it implies that something of great worth has been lost. He made a living from getting kicked in the nuts. How did that benefit society? And how many words in that entire story mention the passenger he KILLED? We should be glad he’s dead- one less “j@ck@ss” for the world to deal with.

  • jules

    You shouldnt be glad that anyone is dead. And he didnt kill his passenger. The passenger made a choice to get in the car with a drunk driver. It is sad for the family and friends of those killed but beyond that we should be glad that nobody else was killed.

  • mark

    hey dumbass daniel c ryan was the passenger not the driver fuckin idiot he wasnt driving the car his friend was

  • sorrow

    1. DANIEL C: you just need to grow up an havesome respect for the family an there loss
    2. JK: you just need to go right a book or something this is no time to be talking crap an trying to preach you holy than thou bullshit yes he did the wrong thing an yes you point maybe valid but give it a rest.

  • sorrow


  • w-bull

    everone take a second to relax,.. and “sorrow” please use that second and work on your spelling.

    drinking and driving is never a good idea, this is an example. an expensive one.

  • fuckUhaters

    man all you haters dont need to comment he was 1 of the funniest one on his show he will be missed 4 ever R.I.P Ryan….. and all you haters that are talken shit bout Ryan I hope 1 of your family memeber get drunk and die iin a crash to see how your family feels about it because am sure his family is all heartbroken

  • Antidisestablishmentarianismologists

    Look, Jakass is an awesome creation, and no-body will ever forget the “toy car incident” but, he drank and drove, and now they both pay the price. My condolences to the family.

  • Carolyn

    Yes they should not have been driving drunk. But no one deserves to die like that!

  • Spencer

    i think he is a twat

  • Kez

    Whats with the negativity he died doing something he loved,if drinking and crashing at 110 mph is something he liked then he died happy……..A sad loss and my sympathy goes out to his friends and family.

  • Dana

    I have been completely trashed, and I called my sister to pick me up instead of getting in a car with other drunk people (who, luckily, got home just fine despite turning down our offer for a ride home) because I’m not a dumbass. I liked him, but this is far from tragic, and the only people I feel bad for are his family, not him, for the shame he caused them.

  • amaury

    ryan dunn you will allways keep shining and living in our hearts i send here my feelings to his famyli and friends and you lived the good life bro…

  • Dave

    Nobody can ever take your place Ryan. As a devoted fan I will never forget you.

  • prozac pete

    im ryan dunn and this is drink driving

  • ted v

    you know when i heard he died i was so sad for his friends…they always f’ed with each other but man they loved each other too. If anyone of the cast members see this i am truley sorry for your loss. I didn’t know him, but he went out the way he lived, fast on the edge, with his adrenaline pumping driving a sweet car really fast.

  • sincerely

    This is tragic, however from the point of view of somebody who has lost a loved one from a drunk driver I can understand there response, being angry and judgemental . On the other hand the family that has lost a family member due to alchol abuse is also the victim. God Bless all involved and lets try to be alittle compassionate with each other and realize that any premature lost life is a loss to all. Take this oppertunity to make a change in yourself to help make this a better world..
