‘Jackass’ fame’ Ryan Dunn, known for his daredevil stunts, received at least 23 driving citations in 13 years and he managed to cheat death once in 2005.
His best friend Brandon Bam Margera had apparently predicted Dunn’s death years before.
Five years before Ryan Dunn was killed in a violent car crash, Bam Margera predicted Dunn’s death in eerily specific detail claiming: He's gonna eat it one of these times [in a car accident], TMZ reported. He made the prediction while recording the DVD commentary for Season 5 back in 2006.
According to April, mother of 'Jackass' co-star Bam Margera, Dunn always “drove too fast” and she “yelled at him all the time about that”.
In his entire career spanning 'Jackass', 'Viva La Bam', 'Homewrecker', and 'Proving Ground', Dunn has never hesitated to throw caution to the winds and gained popularity by performing various crude, dangerous, ridiculous, and self-injuring pranks and stunts.
Dunn cheated death once in April of 2005 when he crashed his car in West Whiteland Township but miraculously survived the accident. He was charged with DUI and was forced to complete a program designed for first-time, non-violent offenders.
However, court records showed that charges against him were dropped after he completed a probationary program.
Dunn, 32 years old at the time of his death, made a career out of being a daredevil and pushing the limits of societal norms. He is survived by his parents and the love of his life, Angela M. Cuturic.
A new police report has been released about the June 20 fatal accident of Dunn, which says the actor was extremely intoxicated when he crashed his car at around 2:30 am. His black Porsche GT3, moving at 130 to 140 mph, went off the guard rail and into the ravine before it hit a tree and caught fire.
The crash instantly killed Dunn and a passenger named Zachary Hartwell, who also worked as a production assistant in the 'Jackass 2' movie.
