Jackass star Ryan Dunn died in a traffic accident in the wee hours of Monday as his Porsche 911 GT3 flew off the road and exploded.
The accident occurred near Dunn’s home in West Chester, Pa., according to the West Goshen Township police. The 34-year-old was returning after a night party. His body was charred beyond recognition and was identified by the tattoos.
His car was capable of reaching 190 mile per hour and the accident was surmised to have been caused by high speed. Hours before his death Dunn had tweeted a photo himself, along with two male friends, having drinks.
TMZ reported that sources informed Dunn had drunk at least three light beers and three shots between 10.30pm and 2.10am at Barnaby's of America bar.
Tire marks at the scene of the fatal crash show where the Porsche careened off the highway, through a metal guardrail and into the woods. Pictures from the scene show the charred remains as a tow truck had to drag the wreckage from the woods, Daily Mail reported.
Dunn was an original member of the “Jackass” franchise. He also starred in spinoffs like 'Viva la Bam,' and his own MTV show 'Homewrecker'.
According to the NY Times, Dunn's career in reckless behavior started in the 1990s, when he and friend and collaborator Bam Margera started filming underground skateboard and stunt videos.
He also played conventional roles, appearing in the romantic comedy “Blonde Ambition” (2007) and NBC’s “Law & Order: S.V.U.” according to the report.
