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 report sent to CNN.
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.
"Upon arrival, police located one vehicle off the road and in the woods that was fully engulfed in flames," the report said.
"Speed may have been a contributing factor to the accident," police said, although the investigation is in its preliminary stages.
Dunn was driving the Porsche, which was registered in his name, police said.
A photo of Dunn was posted on his Twitter account about two hours before the wreck showing him with a drink in his hand. Two men sitting with Dunn in the photo are not identified.
The manager of Barnaby's in West Chester, Pennsylvania, confirmed that the photo was taken in his bar Sunday night. The bar is about a mile away from where Dunn was killed in a car crash.
Manager Jim O'Brien confirmed that Dunn was drinking there.
"He didn't seem to be intoxicated at the time he left," O'Brien said. "Ryan was not a hardcore drinker, at least not when he was here."
O'Brien said Dunn was a regular customer and well known to his staff.
"He was a valuable person in our community and his death is a tragedy," O'Brien said. "He will be missed."
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."
Dunn teamed up with "Jackass" co-star Steve-O for an episode of the NBC game show "Minute to Win It" that aired on June 8.
He also hosted "Proving Ground," which premiered on the G4 channel on June 14.

No pity for the self inflicted. Like the billboards say: "You Drink, You Drink, You Loose". The lose of a loved one is always tragic and sad, my condolences to his friends and family. Lets just hope some of the idiots who try his stunts, learn from his poor judgement.
My friend lives in the area of the crash. He could've been driving home from the weekend spent with us in NJ when this idiot recklessly and purposely drove at a crazy rate of speed, apparently under the influence of alcohol as well as stupidity. It makes me sick to think of how many times in the past he probably did the same thing and got away with it, just lucky to have not killed my friend or one of his friends or family members. Really, wise up people. Of course it is sad for Dunn's family and friends. But there's really no reason to romanticize his blatantly disrespectful behavior. The spelling and grammar wars here are pretty humorous, especially coming from those who can barely read. LOL
some of you are so rude this is a human being have some respect! my prayers and thoughts go out to his family ;(
I don't think any of us know for sure what caused the accident, but ....in any case ....2 human beings lost their lives.....may both of them rest in peace.
I did not find him or Bam funny at all. Complete jerks. After seeing all the cruel crap they pulled. too bad Bam. Sorry you were not along for the ride too. Hurts when it's on the other shoe? Totally not cool. Things catch up with you as you get older..if you make it.

i wish Bam was with him
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A RAPPER AND ONE OF DUNN'S FANS?
RAPPERS KILL EACH OTHER, DUNN'S FANS KILL THEMSELVES!!
What is the difference between a rapper and a j'ass? Rappers kill each other and j'asses kill themselves!
Congrats, Dunn. Hats off to you dear fellow.
You are the ultimate jack@$$.
Ryan was a uniquely smart, unassuming, humble and grateful man. I met him in a bar in WC. We shot pool and talked about cars for about a month before he told me "who" he was. I initially thought it was kind of weird that he presented himself as if his career was no more noble, significant or lucrative than that of a pizza delivery guy, but yet he played with a $400 cue, and had some deal with the bar where he'd just go back and tap off his own drink rather than wait for the bartender... I'll pray for you, your family, friends and admirers Ryan. God bless, and RIP.
Rest in peace Ryan....... thanks for the laughs u and all ur friends an family will be in my thoughts..have a good 1
when i saw his photo i thought they were going to say like he got arrested of drinking and driving, but damn he is really going to be missed for all his pranks! RIP
Funny thing is that he just thought he was in a shopping cart getting ready to drive into some bushes.
he wrecked a 911 GT3. apparently after drinking.
no sympathy from me! the real shame is another 997 series GT3 Porsche is gone for ever!
R.I.P. Zachary Hartwell...thoughts and prayers go out to family and friends
R.I.P. Zachary Hartwell....thoughts and prayers go out to family and friends.......
To all the negative posts, we are not here to judge ANYONE, no one knows what happened, except Dunn, passenger and Jesus. When our Father calls us, he calls us.............
R.I.P. Ryan Dunn.... Thoughts and prayers for Bam and family...
God bless his soul!!!!!!!
DUI class I love it!!!! Sound mind!!!!
If the bar manager admitted that he was drunk, they could be held liable for continuing to serve him.
His description is suspect at best.
It sucks for his fans, friends & family that he's dead.
It probably sucks worse for the friends & family of the passenger.
At least it doesnt suck for the relatives of a family w/ kids that could have been killed.
150,000 to 160,000 people die a day in this world. Life is a terminal state.
No need to engage in drinking & driving (or texting/drowsy/drugged/etc & driving). It's selfish.
Wow, show some respect, would you? The bottom line is that Ryan Dunn has passed away due to DUI! You people make hateful comments because he was "having a good time" So what a celebrity (sorry bout the spelling) cant go out anymore?!?! It seems like were losing all our legend and famous people, but everyone has a time and place to pass away .. and so you want to act like you have never seen someone drink a shot or sip a beer. This is a very TRAGIC thing to happen to such a both entertaining and wealthy man. I have always been a fan of Ryan Dunn and I would like to have him back just like his FAMILY which is probably crying at home. Seriously people this can happen to anyone.. It was just at the wrong place at the wrong time.. RIP Ryan Dunn, I will pray for you and your family
People who drink and drive or just drive like A holes STAY OFF THE ROAD some of us are enjoying life and would like to see another day. If you know someone who drinks and drive or is just a horrible driver do everyone a favor and remove the tires off of their car!
R.I.P. ryan dunn we all love u and will miss u.. hope u keep doin ur crazy stunts in heaven love u :( rest in peace
We will miss u Rayn Dunn R.I.P. Will see u soon god son is in a better place.
Never watch "minute to win it". Watched that one because my gf wanted to. RIP Dunn.....god bless bam, steve o, knoxville and all his rieving buddies and family. Truly sad.
You lived so fast and died way too young.My thoughts and prayers are with family and friends,
Oh Dunn...I'm gonna miss you. You made me laugh so hard I almost peed...more than once! lol Viva La Bam was where you were your funniest...the sucking of Dico's face with the vac...putting crabs in bed with Rake...omg- the list goes on! You were hilarious and it's gonna suck knowing you're not out there creating funny as hell havoc for us to laugh at. RIP bro. <3
Andrew – catch up and Google. There is much more of this story than what is above.
Rip Ryan ! My prayer for comfort and peace to ur family and friends!!
R.I.P. Ryan thank you for all the laughs. You will be missed
Ryan Dunn was one of americas greatest prank style comedians. He will be missed and will live on in our hearts forever.
We don't know the details of his drinking that night. For all we know, he didn't have anything more than the drink in his hand in that picture. Before we get on our high horses here, take a moment to respect this man, and all of the joy he's brought people this last decade.
I find myself feeling truly sad over this. I always loved to watch these guys and they reminded me of the knuckleheads I was in the Army with and all the nonsense we would get into. RIP Ryan, you will be missed.
RIP Ryan Dunn- Bless u, ur passenger, and ur families at this time. As far as these smartass comments yall should be ashamed of urselves. Betcha wouldnt say these things in front of ur momma when someone is in pain and just lost a family member or a good close friend!!!
Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present. Enjoy it to the fullest! (You don't know what tomorrow will bring.)
This breaks my heart. He was so handsome and so full of life. My condolences to his friends and family. Just know the world will always love Ryan.
I would like to know what is wrong with this person Fanny Felatio. How wrong and how rude to make such comments about someone's death. You sound like a person with some real issues. You should be stating how sad it is to lose someone that was liked and cared about by many people. You need some real help don't post anything unless it makes sense
The bartender said he had 6 drinks and did not seem intoxicated... so people please stop saying he was getting smashed.... he wasnt, ask the bartender. I do agree he was driving way to fast.... which is enough to cause this horrible accident
Of course, listen to the bartender. I'm sure the bartender is going to say, "Yeah, he was totally wasted, but we just let him leave so he could sue us"
Duh, it was three oclock in the morning. Dude was doing over 100 mph all banged up. Not smart.
Later Bro. You lived life to the fullest, condolences to family & loved ones worldwide.
My heart sank today......reading that Ryan Dunn has passed.........My heart goes out too ALL....that knew and LOVED and RESPECTED RYAN........I only knew of him thru TV......I was never blessed meeting him Personally......but somehow he always got my attention..and made me laugh thru the rough times........Just watched him and Steve-o...on Minute to Win It.......U can tell Those were 2 great Friends.....I never know the right words at this time of sorrow........I will just say Thanks for the Laughs RYAN....
Dunn was born in Medina, Ohio and grew up in Williamsville, New York before moving to West Chester, Pennsylvania, with his parents in his early teens. He first came into public attention while appearing in four videos alongside his friends in the CKY Crew, which in stood for "Camp Kill Yourself".
Show your support to Ryan and the people he left so suddenly.
RIP Ryan, you will be greatly missed and you will forever be remembered. The entertainment industry will never be the same without you!
I will dearly miss your most phenominal beard!!!!
Never heard of him and doesn't sound like I missed much...a drunk driver killed himself...that is what this amounts too...I feel bad for his surviving family but the guy sounded like a complete idiot....not a surprise in this dumbed down age that he was greatly admired for being an idiot!
Will be missed
There was an additional person killed in the car. That is why there has been no official police report yet.
It doesn't matter what caused the crash or that he made his living doing crazy stunts. A mother has lost her child and many people have lost a friend. I didn't know him, but he seemed like someone you could kick back with and hang out. You didn't have to like him or agree with what he did, but you should at least show some respect for the people who loved him and are mourning his loss. My thoughts and prayers go out to Ryan's family and friends as well as the passenger who also their life. Grow up people!
My heart and prayers go out to his family, but more importantly to his friends. I have been there and kno the pain first hand. All the Jack Ass crew, keep your heads up and carry out Dunns legacy in honor. I know it will be a difficult journey, but you will come out victorious. Bless all your families in this time of sorrow.
8pm tonight let's all drink a beer in honor of this great man.
Its so sad..i just saw the Minute to win it episode with him in it a few weeks ago..and now..hes gone D:
R.I.P Ryan Dunn
Rest in peace man.
Don't drink and drive.
I am sad that a young man, with his life ahead of him, died that way. If he was drunk, yes, that IS what happens. But don't ride his ass about it, he was loved and will be missed. Terrible waste of life. As far as the turds with the "glad it happed" garbage: I hope no one talks that harshly about you after you pass away. I really do mean that sincerely. Life is so short, even if it lasts a hundred years.
What did Ryan Dunn do with his cars? He rectum.
HE'S LOOKING AT HIS DRINK FOR ICE CUBES FOR LATER!! AAAAAHHHHH!!!! IM BURNING!!!!
you are so NOT funny...
The only one laughing at your pre-pubescent humor that goes nowhere is... alas... yourself. There is nothing worth laughing my @ss off about your comments.
To all you alpha dogs that are posting these hateful stupid comments may you end up in a ditch some were today.
Although it may never be proven if he was driving drunk, his reckless driving should serve as a dire warning to others. Speeding is a choice. Drinking is a choice. A 34-year-old MAN acting like a child, racing down a curvy road in a sportscar with a passenger in tow is inexcusable. People who drive drunk should be locked up on the FIRST OFFENSE and have their licenses and driving privileges revoked for LIFE! NO TOLERANCE! Drunk driving is one of the most heinous, selfish and disgusting crimes imaginable. Thank God no innocent children were KILLED because of this CHOICE.
I think we should give his family more respect than that & keep them in our prayers.(lets leave the negative stuff behind)R.I.P RYAN
The only idiots I see here are the ones who use this article to say something for God or against God. The "Bible-Beaters" have stopped talking yet you continue...
You are not funny, please quit life.
AAAAHHHHH!!!!! IM BURNING!! I JUST KILLED SOMEONE!! AM I IN HELL!!! AAAAAHHHHH!!!!
I can't believe all of these hateful comments. Seriously people whether it is someone who is famous or it is someone who is your neighbor. There are close friends and family and are completely upset over what had happen. RIP Ryan.... you will truly be missed and for your close friends and family I will be praying for them, it is truly sad on what happened but all of you people who want to assume things that the internet posts GROW UP! The internet is not always right.... in the end you will be missed my several people Ryan may you be in a better place....
Soo sorry to hear this, its almost as if one of my close friends had past. All these years my friends and I would sit around and watch these guys do the things that amused our sence of humor. RIP Dunn, you will be missed my friend.
Thank you for all the funny things you did for us, even if they were bad ideas. You will be missed.
I hope this is a lesson to all who insist on liven the same life style...my prayers go out to his family n friends...
Does anyone know where they were drinking? Was it Four Dogs Tavern? That is out that way. Someone should have cut them off sooner. RIP Dunn. You were a funny guy and down to earth.
HES HIDING IN THE CAR!!
R.I.P. to a master of entertainment who did all the things WE were affraid too....
Found a Song he did a few years ago, never new he did it lol goo.gl/CVkE0
Man what a sad sad day for Dunn's family, freinds, & fans. We love you Ryan Dunn. RIP buddy. Make Jesus laugh for us!
Raptor Jesus has him Now. He scooped him up with his caring claws and took him to the afterlife that is your gas tank.
Some of you people need to have respect beat into you. We don't know that alcohol was a factor....we don't even know if Ryan was driving. What I do know is if were a close friend or a close family member it would be different and you would want other people to show respect toward them. Grow up and show respect to Ryan and his family. Ryan, you and your family and friends are in my prayers. We love you and you will be missed. RIP RYAN DUNN!!!!!
Im a gay fuudegepacking doookie eating idiot.
This sickened me reading these comments that call Dunn a hero. He was drunk that killed his friend/ passenger with his drunk driving. His life doesn't deserve praise, but contempt. Good riddance Ryan Dunn, you ruin a family with your stupidity
You're one to talk. Didn't you die in Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift?
funny guy, not much of a race car driver though
Raptor Jesus Has Him NOW!
Ryan ,thank you for making me laugh.keep it up where ever you are.
I BET WEE-MAN WAS KNOBBIN HIM AT THE TIME.....HOPE HE SURVIVED
Ryan Dunn, you'll be dearly missed! I. Just watched Jacka** yesterday! Thanks for all the laughs buddy! And my heart especially goes out to Bam they were like brothers!
That's how I want to die. Quietly in my sleep, not kicking and screaming like my passenger.
I kind of feel bad for the poor schmuck who was with Ryan...no one seems to know or care who he was.
Is Raptor Jesus kinda like ManBearPig?
It is so sad how rude & malicious people are. I am against drunk driving but we forget that two human beings have lost their lives. My heart goes out to their families. RIP Dunn & friend
Should have been Wee Man. Being a fidget, he was only HALF as funny as the rest of us and would only be missed HALF as much.
Stupid comments from a stupid person..Not Funny
HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! STILL DOING PRANK SH$#!! WHATS NEXT.........
Being familiar with the stretch of road where he had the accident, I'm not shocked. Folks exceed the speed limit all the time, and that includes large trucks coming from the nearby quarry. It's been reported by local media that his car burst into flames upon impact and that they had to shut the entire road down to removed the charred remains of the car's frame, which was the only thing left. So he basically was burned alive. Hopefully the impact of the crash knocked him out. Terrible way to go.
Not a fan of the Jack@$$ series, but I saw him and Steve-O on Minute to Win it, and he seemed like a genuinely just cool and nice guy. Seemed like a dude I could totally hang out with. It's a shame. And that beard, man . . . glorious.
My thoughts and yes, prayers, go out to he and his. Especially Steve-O. Stay strong, bro.
So was it weed or booze?
How come we couldn't get Steve-O, Johnny Knoxville, and Bam Magera into the car with this idiot? 110 mph, taking a curve, and drinking beforehand. Sounds like a true Darwin nominee right there.
Now that's funny...
Had a few drinks at the Iron Hill with this guy 5-6 years ago. Sad.
I hope they got it on tape for our amusement!
He wants to die young because there is no life in earth.
Forgiveness is the biggest part of this short life cause you just don't know when your time is up. I am deeply saddined for this freak accident to a very funny and crazy man. God bless to his family and friends.
no matter what to happen or who did what this man is gone way to soon..bad choice made good man lost..he was very entertaining to watch..may he rest in peace!!
Dude had balls that clanked. Followed ur stuff the whole way. RIP Ryan Dunn, the show must go on. Thanks for the laughs.
Raptor Jesus™ ® .... Lord and Savior since 70,000,000 BC ~Because He was HERE FIRST! ©
i really feel sooo bad,he used to make me laugh will b misin u ryan
I really hate to hear this! I loved watching him on tv. He will be sadly missed!
Thanks for the laughs and memories, Dunn. You, for sure, were one of my favorites. See you on the other side, bro. RIP.
The gene pool thanks you for checking out early. Next jack ass?
So, so saddening and shocking. We've been long time fans of Ryan and his squad. He will be greatly missed in my circle of friends. Ryan – you were extremely entertaining and put up with a lot of crap from those guys. We all know that none of you guys intend on living to a ripe old age but it still doesn't make it any easier to hear something like this. We will be thinking of you and your family / friends in the coming days. Rest in peace my good man.
...and may your testicles finally rest in peace as well...
RIP Dunn u will be missed for a lifetime....
I understand what other people are saying about him and the twitter picture but just because he was drinking doesn't necessarily mean he was driving. I just wish people would actually wait for the details of the crash to be realeased before going around and making assumptions. Just my opinion.
another drunk bites the dust, dut dut dut dut, another drunk bites the dust...
prays go to family. and thanks ryan for all the grt laughs RIP
oh whatever. show me one iota of proof. anything, and dont say the bible because thats not an answer. the bible is as inaccurate as they come. you would expect more from a all powerful deity. of course people will take your views on god an use them as a basis for their argument, you are the one with the burden of proof.
Why are there people like Frank Booth?
Take care of yourselves and your loved ones. Wake up and smell the coffee people... garbage in... garbage out. Educate yourselves everyday and quit taking for granted the people closest to you, honor their souls, their light, their worth to you moment by moment.
Live with no regret.
god fckin' dammn it!
R.I.P. Ryan thanks for the laughs. My condolences go out to his family, who I hope never read any of the crap other insensitive "human beings" post on this site and any other. No one is perfect in this life and I hope his death is a lesson for someone, everyone's life and death should be a lesson. God Bless!
The negative people posting in this seem to portray Dunn as some sort of criminal, or someone that influences people to the point of insanity. That isn't true at all. Most people have the god-given ability to make their own decisions and that includes wrong decisions. That doesn't place a label on a person though as a detriment to society. Wake up people...he wasn't a mass murderer or terrorist or anyone that wanted to inflict pain and sorrow on other people. There are dumber people in the media than Dunn. Rest in Peace Ryan. If the naysayers say "f this guy" at least your family, friends and true fans will remember you as a human being...not a piece of s**t.
Another man wildman who held it wideopen. Made me laugh too. RIP.
GLER is about to pop...check it out...BUY...GLER GLER GLER
Live like a jacka$$ die like one. Too bad you took someone innocent with you. You were nothing special just another dime a dozen drunk driver. Glad your not around to influence my kids anymore.
If your gonna drink and drive, drive fast......RiP
Can't wait to protest his funeral!
why does this hilarious guy die, yet idiots like Lady GaGa get to liveon. There is no god
He was a close friend and one of the only "good" people that I ever knew. He'll be missed more than I can express in words.
As to some of the negative comments expressed here, he was much more than just a crazy guy in TV and movies. Smart (especially with anything technical in nature), well spoken, kind, and a hell of alot of fun. This country could use alot more people like him...
If this realy is Rake, I am sorry for your loss. Very sad. He was also not a guy that thinks having a few drinks and laughs with a fan was beneath him as I found out. Very funny and witty and nice.
I agree...He had a family. Yes it was dumb 2 drink and drive, and yes he killed some else but don't slander him he was a person, have some respect!!
I wasn't on duty but the guys who were say that they were both so crispy, as they tried to remove them from the wreck, limbs were snapping off like overdunn pieces of barbecue chicken. They were both indeed "well dunn".
If he has of been smoking cannabis instead of poisoning himself with alcohol he might still be here right now. Stop drunk driving, smoke a joint and be happy. And to anyone who says what if he was smoking and driving? Obviously you have never smoked cannabis before and your opinion means nothing. Stop drinking and start smoking.
Those of you who want to slam a successfull man for his proffession, will be slammed your self by someone some time after your own death! RYAN Was a good friend and made millions laugh! can you do that? are you willing to do outrageous stunts to make
history? break the normal barriers of a proffession and set the bar so high no one can top it? Not many of us ever will! REST IN PEACE RYAN DUNN you will be missed! your friends from Painhaven montg. AL.
Belushi, Farley, Dunn. Damn the good do die young. R.I.P to all 3.
Its a good thing that madman didnt slaughter you or my friend or family members. Well, hope he didnt. Its pretty clear that porsche was driving well over 110mph which is infact reckless driving 2x over, yikes. Cause= effect, there is no accident. I wish people wouldnt be so reckless on public designated areas.If only because your imposing risks on other peoples live and you have no right to do that. Theres plenty of places to go kill yourself without risking the innocent like you or me driving home from grandmas house party at 2 am. Well atleast the innocent bystander death toll is only at 1, but thats one too many. RIP
He wasn't a RIP except to his family and friends. He was a moron who made a fortune playing a fool, that is all he was and all he will ever be.
I have evidence that it was illegal aliens that caused the crash that killed Ryan Dunn.
Thank you God!
F*#K YOU DAVE!
R.I.P. Ryan Dunn you the man..
Hi, I'm Ryan Dunn, and this is called "Burning Myself and My Passenger To An Unrecognizable Crisp". Enjoy!
Rest in God's arms now both of u. Amen.
Thank God this idiot didn't take out an innocent family in oncoming traffic or an SUV. It's untimely for a young man to die, but he did it to himself by being stupid.
Drunk driving, all you gotta do is mess up once to ruin your life, or end it altogether.
Well, another jacka ss we won't have to worry about on the roads anymore. Too bad he had to take someone with him when he went. Maybe he didn't want to be lonely during his trip to the other side. And if his passenger was as drunk as him and was stupid enough to get into a car with him, well sucks to be him. Good riddance.
Ryan Done – dunn, done, dunn, done! Thank goodness.
Hmmm, I was almost positive that the car would have gone through the tree, it was traveling 110mph!
So now there are 2 unanswered questions bugging me..
How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll tootsie pop?
How fast do you have to be going to actually go through an oak tree?
Why are people so rude to each other on blogs?
Natural Selection wins. I sincerely hope this schmuck did not have offspring. Good riddance.
I THINK ITS TERRIBLE THAT PEOPLE WANT TO POINT FINGERS AT A TIME OF SOMEONES DEATH. WHO ARE YOU OR I DO JUDGE AND IF YOU HAD A LIFE STYLE THAT THEY OR HE LIVED YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW YOU WOULD BE. 3:30 AND DRINKING AT A BAR THE ACCIDENT HAPPENED IN PA NO BARS OPEN ON A SUNDAY UNTIL 3:30 UNLESS ITS A PRIVATE CLUB SO WHERE PEOPLE ARE GETTING THE INFO FROM IM NOT SURE. RIP YOU DESERVE IT.
He was a grown man who lived life and didn't care what people thought about the way he carried himself. It's sad because his fans pushed him to continually top his previous act; it's almost like we asked for him to push the envelope in his everyday life looking for some acceptance, because anything else may let the fans, critics and media down.
We still need to remember the 2 families who are devastated from these tragic turn of events.
RIP Ryan.... may god have a hot wheel in a condom waitng for you
This one is called Casket Ride.
Given the twitter pics of him drinking earlier in the evening, the idea that alcohol was not a factor seems remote. Unfortunate, but typical; if he had surviced and his passenger had not he would be a murderer, not a victim so my sympathy is limited.
Natural selection is alive and well with a bleach dump into the gene pool. Excellent.
I'm Ryan Dunn and this is Bumper Car Death Drive!
The only reason some guys (it's always guys, did you notice that?) make fun of a dead person is because nobody will miss THEM when they leave the planet.
While it is a shame that this person lost his life at such a young age, the fact remains that he could have easily killed other innocent drivers. I have one question for all those folks who think the criticism being expressed is not fair. Would you like to be on the same highway when this person's car came flying toward your car at 110 mph? I think not.
Poetic justice. Now there is one less clown in the world to influence other idiots just like he was. It's too bad, but the world may be one step closer to becoming a better place. This was a gleam of light in the news today.
I Nearly Cried :( No Wayy, He Was So Cool R.I.P Dude <3
Amazing how such a tragedy happens, and everyone is so quick to fight and bicker when all opinions are shared on the situation. Just because someone has a different opinion then your own, doesnt mean you should bash them for it!
And if you are so quick to jump to conclusions on the situation b4 the information has been released, then u need a day/night job, so you aren't so concerned about stars and their business!! Google provides us with a bunch of information yes, but is it truly correct b4 put up, probably not, or not right down to the detail anyways. anyone who has had to wait on an investigation in real life would know how long it takes for anyone to have answers to what may have happened.
so save the fighting and bickering and just wait to hear what happened instead of fighting over all of it. Im sure Ryan wouldnt want his fans fighting over what had happened to him.
Miss you bro. Thanks for the laughs.
Damn man this is terrible news...only the good die young.
These guys are lucky enough to be millionaires over the most idiotic stuff and this fool takes it all for granted and throws it away.
I guess you don't have to be very smart to be successful.
It's almost more the opposite these days.
Best. Stunt. EVER!
Good Riddance is an idiot.
Actually, life will go on and be much better. It would be better if the entire team of idiots around "Jack-A" goes away, or better yet, take a similar path without having any offspring.
RIP Dunn. Today now sucks worse.
Its better to burn out...than it is to rust....R.I.P. ...thanks for the laughs sir!!!
numerology for Ryan Dunn:
Wow, thats right around the corner from my house!!! Didnt see it in the local news.
I will NEVER say that someone's death is a good thing (except in the event of people who commit mass murders and such). While his stunts did influence a lot of people to do stupid things, one can not say that WATCHING something is the only influence people have. Look at the music we listen to, and let young children listen to. Excluding rap, look at people like Lady Gaga that all these young girls listen to. However, I do not blame the industries. I blame the parents. Do not put the blame on today's television, music, video games, and else. Look at yourself. How much have you been there for your child? What sort of vales have you instilled into your child? We can not allow our television sets to be our baby sitters and then expect them to do what is right. It is NOT the responsibility of government, television stations, radio stations, video game companies, or any other source of media to make sure that our kids grow up right. What I am saying is this: if someone dies trying to reproduce a stunt seen on Jack-Ass, do not blame the makers of the show/movies. Look at how they were raised. Take some responsibility for the things that you have done, or, as the case seems to be, NOT done. That is irresponsible.
While it is not surprising that Ryan Dunn has died at such a young age, it is VERY sad. The way he died was so tragic. My condolences go out to friends and family. I hope that something good can come of this. Perhaps this will be a solemn reminder to EVERYONE (not just the people of Jack-Ass) that no matter how invincible you feel, you are not.
Again, my condolences go out to everyone who was close to him. It is a tragic way to die. Rest in piece, Ryan Dunn. Rest in pieces.
Man thats crazy may he RIP
Always assumed God would Steve-O off our hands first. Is this proof there is no God??
Damn such a sad news to find out. Ryan was a hilarious guy and one of the best in the cast. Rest in peace bro.
Who out there actually cares? I mean seriously?????
REST IN PEACE DUNN. I'M SURE WEST CHESTER WILL MISS YOU!
Your behavior has consequences.
RIP Ryan! We don't know if he was drunk. Let's wait before jumping to conclusion.
That's too bad.
Police say "excessive speed" was a contributing factor in his Porche sailing through the guardrail at 3:00am.
Darwin shoots! He scores! Again! LOL!
RIP Dunn..You where AWESOME I have been watching the show since it first started years ago..was just watching one of the movie last night..Gonna miss you a LOT>>>my heart to the guys and the family
Seems like our generation all grew up w these guys... so so so sad:( he will be missed terribly. heaven def. will have laughter now... unreal.. very sorry to his family & friends.
don't know him personally, but in movies , he made me laugh which is the biggest gift you can give to anyone. For that, I think he should be rememberd with good words.
Thank you for leaving the gene pool without taking innocent people with you.......Of course, it was an accident that you didn't, so no credits for adult behavior there.....Just ANOTHER case of gifted, but STUPID !!!
RIP Ryan "Random Hero" Dunn
see you on the other side
You people are disgusting. Regardless of what Ryan did with his life and the choices he made, he is a person with friends and family that loved him, and I'm willing to bet he made you wastes of space laugh more than once. Have some respect.
Respect? You mean like the respect he showed his passenger and the other people traveling the road that night?
I suppose you subscribe to the "do as I say, not as I do" philosophy in life. Your compassion as a human is touching.
Im with ya Jess! His passanger had a choice to ride with him or not. I have done the same many times. You all act like he did it on purpose.
This could have happened to any of them. Stupid way to go.
Stymie – I think rot in hell was meant for Ryan and not for the poor passanger in his car....I agree !
He murdered the person in the passenger seat. Dunn was and always be a real creep. It is a good thing he never came to Utah. We dont allow peerrvs like him in Utah the Beautiful.
How'd you get in?
It hasn't said who was driving the car
Really.... No pervs in Utah? Home of Polygamy and that creepy Warren Jeffs guy. Full of PERVS!
Shanna, did you know him personaly to call him a creep? Seems you are no better to call the dead a creep and a perv. Its amazing how people judge others with out even knowing them!
Did he not have the minimum amount of wives to get into Utah or some crap?
Utah has quite a few creeps, be happy that you may not be one of them. But your wonderful state is renown for polygamists and even stranger human behaviour that others view is creepy.
Just Mother Nature's way of cleaning up the gene pool.
Rest in peace dunn and thanks for the memories. Only the good die young.
Until the coroner releases am official toxicology report and autopsy results, nothing is know about whethere he was drunk or not. Until then STFU and go back to getting your news from somebodies twitter feed like a moron.
My prayers go out 2 the family of those we loved 2 laugh at. Ryan will be missed.. on another note. some of ur posts r so disrespecrful u should be ashamed u wrote.. ryans family has feelings an should be giving the respect they deserve...
Looks like his career is all dunn. Was his body well dunn?
One less idiot encouraging kids to do stupid things. Maybe we'll get some real entertainment now. Too bad he didn't kill himself sooner.
He was drinking and driving. He deserved his fate; I'm just glad he didn't take out a family while he was at it. No sympathy whatsoever.
My prayers go to the Dunn family, i was so sad to hear this, he will be missed thanks for all the great laughs
RIP RYAN... THANKS FOR THE LAUGHES!!!
Does anyone know who the passenger driver was?
Love how CNN censors and spins the story. How they turn a self inflected idiotic death by a jackazz whose behavior sadly killed a passenger into some sort of tragic accident.
My condolences to the passenger that was riding with this idiot.
I am saddened that you were not his passenger.
Omg bless ryann sole n god bless his family 4 this tradge he was very funny hope you get while soon
Its all in my name.
The world was your bearded oyster bro, you made many people laugh, and that was a wonderful talent you had. May god bless your new journey brother. You are missed.
Trolls sadly exist throughout the internet, but really give it a rest when it comes to a death for someone as well known and loved like Ryan Dunn. Just for once no trolling on a death, please?
Judging from these comments, we're dealing with highly ignorant people. They don't understand how to be respectful.
Yes, we must respect the guy who shoved a toy car up his butt.
Oh.. how touchy-feely should we be with this fart lighter? Morons
That "fart lighter" was a friend to many and had family that loved him. If you were to go drive into a tree while wasted, I personally wouldn't care, but I wouldn't be all over a blog talking cr@p about you.
It should have been Bam Margera...
Putting "It Should Have Been BAM!" t-shirts on Cafe Press Now... Lulz
You know I am sick and tired of these idiots that set there and talk crap to people when they say don't drink and drive. First your breaking the law second your putting your life and others at risk driving drunk. On top of that they haven't said who was driving the car when it happen. He will be missed he has done more then just Jack A** he was on minute to win it for a charity. To you idiots that think it is ok to drink and drive take a look at the family's that have lost loved ones due to drunk drivers.
Rest in Pieces
I heard he was a devout mormon. He would speak in tounges while eating cups full of doodoo. A turdknockker in the truest sense.
RIP Drunk Driver
WHO? i don't watch stupid shows/movies, so don't know (and don't care) who this guy was
can we say Darwim?
This is such sad news!! He always made me smile and laugh. He will be missed!!
Ppl have to pay a price for fame...he was the cost and his cast members are payn for it
SO sad. I hope it wasn't a gargling, slow death in a ditch somewhere with a metal sign post protruding from his breast plate, while his mandible was swinging by the exposed muscle on one side of his bloodied face as he feverishly yanked and pulled his arms from the holes created in the dash from the sudden imapact of hitting an immovable object.
You can do better. I suggest a better creative writing class and you should be fine.
Maybe this will be like polterguist and the cast will start dropping like flies. My heart goes out to the person he murdered and their family. Everyone involved from the bar they drank at to the so called friends that allowed him to drive should be held accountable.
Rest in peace Ryan n thanx 4 all the emtertainment
My thoughts and prayers go out to the families RIP buddy the world has lost a great person :-(
I was glad to see you battle back from your hard times and this is a sad turn. Thanks for all the laughs and I know you will be truly missed by all who really knew you.
Personally, when I drink and drive, I NEVER feel the urge to drive at 110 MPH. If anything, I stare at the speedometer and and try to drive safe. I wonder what was going through his mind? I'll bet the last thing to go through his mind was his spine! Or maybe the windshield! Well, I hope they bury him with a toy car in his butt for old time's sake.
Satan's having some j@cka$$ fun wit this poser right now. Ouch! OOp! EEk!!
Dunn* you were such a funny man with such great talent! You will be dearly missed!! R*I*P ;)
They can use footage of this as the trailer for their next movie. I'll watch it over and over again.
A headline that was destined to be.
What a fitting end to a moronic fool.
Hopefully before he left the bar he was able to visit the mens room for one final and enjoyable doo doo.
I have no idea why that is funny, but it is.
Heh, heh, heh.
Was he the one that went into a "mom & pop" hardware store and took a dump or the one that kept running into the bathroom and beating the crap out of his Dad? That was not humor. It was a freak show. I gave those guys a chance because they did do some stuff that was funny, like the midget humor was the best or the time they left the fake baby seat on top of the car but the beating of your father and sh&%*$#g in a toilet in the middle of someones business....tasteless really. That's how I remember him.
No, he was the one that stuck a toy car up his butt. How dare you accuse him of being tasteless! Get your facts straight and shame on you and your family!
Everyone has a price to pay for fame...the price was his life and his cast is payn for it...
omg another hero of mine has to die why rip homy ull be missed
TO ALL, this was a tragedy no matter what that could of been avoided. Its sad to see people post hate comments. I've been there (RIP to my Brother) and no matter what who's at fault its sad. Ironic, but sad. Let us pray to all who has been affected by this and God Bless. Show love not hate.

He didn't do either of those.
Prayers to all his family and friends. RIP Ryan.
rest in peace BRAZIL Love u so much... :(
On June 20, 2011 at approximately 3:30 am EDT, Dunn died in a car crash in West Goshen Township, Pennsylvania. Reports from TMZ state that he posted a photo of himself drinking with friends hours beforehand. At the time of the accident, Dunn was believed to have been traveling over 110 mph (180 km/h). An unidentified occupant of the vehicle was also found dead at the scene. WKST-FM reported that both of the bodies had suffered severe burns, and the emergency medical technicians experienced difficulty in identifying the vehicle's occupants; Dunn was reportedly identified by his tattoos and facial hair
I rest my case.
Because nobody else has facial hair, right? YOU should have died instead of Dunn.
Actually is it was the toy car in the butt, dead give away
You will be missed my friend...RIP
BOOZE+DRIVING = ALL DUNN
Rest in peace, Ryan Dunn. Millions will miss you.
Ryan made me laugh so many times, really sad to hear the news, my condolences to his family, RIP Dunn.
I wonder if WeeMan walked up to him after the accident and started whacking him int he balls....
our heart goes out to the Dunn family. rip Ryan Dunn.. thanks for the laughs .. You will never b forgotten ,, <3
They identified the body by finding a toy car in his butt
RIP RYAN DUNN
The death of a 34 year old man stuck in adolescence...
Thanks for the laughs, R.I.P dunn.. ;(
Awesome! One less degenerate drunk driver off the road. Big win. Good day...
The guy made money in one of the most unconventional ways imaginable, so I gotta tip my hat to him. Thanks for the laughs man, RIP
Have some class people! Agreed, if he was drinking and driving, that is horrible. However, his death, nor the passenger's death is funny. Stop with the ridiculous jokes and remember he has family and friends that may read your tasteless jokes. Have some respect. One day, though I hope not, you may be in thir shoes. Unfortunately, I know how it feels. Grow up. The jokes are NOT funny.
Wow. What a trip. Just watched him and steve-o on Minute to Win It the other ngiht. RIP.
I loved the way Bam always tricked him into getting hurt. The Matchbox car in the butt was a funny stunt. Gonna miss you, man.
You brought a lot of laughs to our family my boys loved you, so does the wife and me. We will never forget you.
Judge not... And why come to this page just to tell off a dead person? Can't think of anything grosser. RIP
So Long Dunn you will ne sorely missed .... You have made me laugh everytime you came on the screen
A stupid mistake. RIP dude. You will be sorely missed. Thanks for the laughs.
This is such a tragic event. ppl r saying 'big deal, he was drinking and driving', as a recovering alcoholic, he MATTERED. everone does. my prayers go out to his family and friends.
Toy car in rectum. Some how that seems ironic now.
He so funy in Hangover movies I miss him
Can't tell if trolling or just very stupid.
It's a stupid troll
Ryan-the world will miss you.To all of you vicious people who said he had it coming-how would you feel if someone in your family died in a wreck?You wouldn't blame them, would you?Think about his family members, who are probably reading these posts.Show a little compassion or don't post.
He had been drinking/partying and was behind the wheel? Sorry, can't say this is a big loss...Unfortunately according to other news reports...He killed atleast one other person that was a passenger in that car...Good riddance regardless of who was driving...But, so far looks like it was Dunn according to most sources...He's off the roads for good now...
Hopefully this mofo's death wasn't a result of some sort of driver negligence! But, I highly doubt it!
let me guess... he wasnt wearing a seatbelt.
Uhm, did you read the part about the car bursting into flames? Like a seatbelt would help in that instance.
Guy down the road drove his car 110 miles (sober) around a 25mph curve. Wearing a seatbelt. No chance, seatbelt woudn't have mattered.
everyone who has something nasty to say, you should do everyone else a favor and take yourself out. who people mess up, we all do. also if he killed his passenger...well that person should have thought about it before getting in the car, RIP.
THANK YOU!!! Every one sitting there saying how he posted a picture of him drinkin on Twityer hours prior tothe crash. And no one deserves to die, but the people in the vehicle obviously were drunk themselves or KNEW he was drunk. So why get in the car with someone you know has been drinking?
Knoxville only wishes the cameras were rolling. At least he'll be able to record defiling the corpse along with his buddies at the funeral. Just imagine the box office!
RIP!!!! Ryan.. Thanks for all the laughs..... You will be sadly missed by all....
Lets not act like this guy was some kind of hero. If he lived through this accident, he would be charged with vehicular homicide. He was driving drunk. He made a career out of doing stupid stunts, this isn't some surprise.
One word: "DARWIN"
I thought his last name was "Dunn"
Lets not jump to a conclusion on his passing. For now, I just hope his family and friends are coping the best they can.
How sad to lose such an enormous talent. He will be greatly missed by all of the youngsters that he had such a positive influence on. Ryan let young people know that it is always ok to have fun even if you sometimes have to act slightly irresponsible to do so. This is an importantmessage that will always have a lasting impact on Ryan's many, many highly intellegent fans. RIP Ryan Dunn, you will be missed and always remembered.
Positive influence? Puh-leeze!
Good riddance, I hope the stupid movies have a fiery crash at 110 as well.. inspiring trailer park americans since.....
I hope that your cold, cruel, and insenitive butt winds up in a head on at just 65 mph, and afterwards ABDULLAH THE BUTCHER comes and sits squarely upoin your damaged head. Ryan was a true, and very talented genius,. The kind of genius that morons like yourself are too dumb to ever understand and appreciate.
You sound as if you know the trailer park as well as you know yourself.
Genius ? so that's what it means when someone shoves a matchbox car in their butt.
This is society today... this is still a human life, with a family and friends and people who love him. Nobody "deserves" to die. You are all terrible people.
Cant you people read, he WAS drinking and he DID kill someone else. Loser.
Damn... Comedy just got less funny. RIP dunn
Wow this is very sad.
Man, who ever said death dosen't comes in three's really needs to do some research!!
Thank you for making me laugh! You will be missed by your fans and anyone who knew you. Regardless of what caused the wreck there is a talented young man dead. I will be going home from work, putting my feet up and watching hours of Jack Ass.
Damn... Comedy just got less funny.
I wish it was Bam!
"dunn" like "done"? bad last name.
He was killed at 3:00 am and you don't think partying was somehow involved? He may not have even been driving, but you don't die in a car accident a 3:00 am unless drugs and alcohol were involved.
You are an idiot. Lots of people drive fast at 3:00am completely sober. Maybe just you and your friends do it drunk. Idiot
I guess all of us that have to be at work around that time are either drunk or doing drugs because we are driving fast at 3 am? Not everyone makes mistakes at 3 am that involve alcohol or drugs. Don't be quite so judgmental until you know ALL of the facts about it.
Really? That's a stupid assumption. I drive to work at 3am and have a 40 minute commute. Weather and wildlife can both contribute to a car accident. That's probably not what happened here, but alcohol is not the only contributing factor to automobile accidents, no matter what time of the day.
Now, imagine for two minutes that this happened to a friend or family member of yours, and show the respect you would want/need to his family. Regardless of the cause of death, as senseless as it is, he had friends and family who are grieving now.
I literally just saw this guy on Minute to Win It with Steve-O. He seemed really down to earth and very kind. He was doing the show for charity and obviously had a good heart. Poor guy :(
Man I just watched him on minute to win it last week. Sorry For Mr. Dunns family may he rest in peace.
Eh. There were pictures of him drinking that night. Idiot was going 110 mph. So forget him. Unfortunately, his passenger died too. What a selfish thing to do.
Source: Wikipedia page
Yes, because we all know Wikipedia is totally 100% accurate.
Ryan Dunn – you will be greatly missed. Thoughts to your family and friends. And the saddest thing is all those posting on this saying he had it coming. His family and friends willl suffer this loss for the rest of their lives. Saying he deserved it only makes you a sad human being with no compassion.
Ill miss u dunn ill rermber ur movies and rember ur extreme ness u dare devil rest in peace my friend
I hope that turd that post under the name dave nelson was the passenger. He seems like a bully and a creep.
R.I.P random hero. You were always my favorite
r.i.p ryan u were funny and makeing the world lmao
They havent released any information about whether or not he was drunk.
A picture is worth a thousand words, especially one involving him, his friends and alcoholic beverages in their hands hours before the incident.
Goes to show that it could happen that fast. Not everyday is promised. Its important for god to be pleased with you because you could be answering to him before you know it
Thank you for making my family laugh. I will be praying your family & loved ones.
Paging Dr. Darwin !! .... Dr. Charles Darwin to a white paging telephone ...
....No, Darwin is not to call (on the white phone)....this is not evolution at work. This is not a case of the strong surviving and the weak dying off. Evolution now favors the stupid. Go watch Mike Judge's "Idiocracy"
This is a sad case of perhaps a young successful man making series of bad mistakes. Condolences to all that knew and loved the two that perished.
Dr. Reality-just stepping in here. That is so not what evolution is about. Natural selection, one of the mechanisms by which evolution occurs and which Darwin formulated is the concept that certain behaviors are selected for or (more often) against. Dunn engaged in risky behavior. If one were to assume that such behavior were inheritable and he had not yet had children, then yes, his behavior was selected against by his death. That in no way makes his death funny or good or anything else childish. But if you are going to correct someone about evolution, then know what it is.
WOW..CNN Thanks for not putting up my post once again!
Bet you would be screaming bloody murder if you couldn't post some stories!!
My he rest in peace, any loss of life is sad.
But the show was a big waste of airtime. I still wonder how many censors wallets got fat letting this show get by?
Looks like he famously got a car shoved up his rectum one last time...
At least he won't feel the hangover.
Im glad it wasnt the g uy with the tattoo of himself on his back. that guy is just goofy ! still sad for the family and friends though.
You mean Steve O.
You will be missed
OMG. I just watched him in minute to win it winning $$$ for his charity This is super sad. :(
Thoughts and prayers to his family and friends :(
People, you can all save the rightenous. The guy did something stupid and got killed, period.
He was a very funny and entertaining actor/stuntman and his antics will be missed.
He's dead, quit kissing his azz, jackazz!
Chum, too bad you weren't the passenger in his car.
Hey obamalito...go suck it
Good Riddance, maybe DUnn was a passenger in someone else's car. It hasn't been confirmed who was driving as of !11:18 CST.
Now go f*#k yourself some more!
Hey BoneMe, your name says it all! Why don't you change it to BoneMeAzz, in tribute to the star of Jackazz!
Darwin had it right... evolution at work...
Though I'm sure canuk100 meant it as an insult, he's probably closer than most. The entire j@cka$$ crew exhibit fitness limiting behavior. Testosterone driven displays of dominance (the "dude blow something up that will impress her" effect as my husband puts it) are ingrained in humans, particularly males. These guys were and are extreme about it. What do you think the number one cause of death in men ages 16-25 is? I'm married to someone who did some seriously stupid sh!t when he was younger. We had a running bet on how he was going to die. He's a little smarter about it these days, but yeah, when you constantly engage in risky behavior, you can't be surprised when you die. His last thought was probably something along the lines of "Aw, Hell." We don't have to call him stupid, we don't have to laugh at his death, but we also don't have to act like it's some shocking tragedy. He chose his life. I doubt even if he knew what would happen that night that he would have done anything different.
Lets not assume he was over the legal limit. It is also very possible he fell asleep at the wheel. Either way alcohol was involved and it's such a tragedy. I am 34 years old like Ryan and this puts my petty problems back into perspective. Life is short.
Screw you dpgw. He was someones friend, someones son and he did nothing to deserve to die at such a young age. I lost my father to a drunk driver, but I do not wish death upon that person for taking his life.
Could someone please give dpgw some English lessons?
Could someone please get *sigh* a life?
I wont condone his actions by any means, drinking and driving is always a bad idea. but to say he got what he deserved is overkill. by your logic i could say you deserve to die for being a cynical jack off
Sorry, Joe but if the picture he posted was from two hours before the crash they either caught him in the world's worst pose and had just slapped him in the face or he was red-faced and hammered. It does remain to be seen whether he was even driving. But yeah, I've been on the other end of that glass enough to know what smashed looks like. (I had a REALLY good time in college.)
Was he diving a shopping cart?
I believe it was a hotwheel but it looks like the condom broke...
Crap! RIP Dunn! Thanks for a ll the laughs!
Funny, funny guy. I hope he was a believer in the Lord Jesus. Life is short....eternity isn't.
Umm... I dont think he drank that f'ing religion kool-aid crap the rest of you bible beaters drink up.
Well said "SamSkwirl".
SamS: You don't have to be "Bible-beater" to know God is real and believe that Jesus Christ is the risen Son of God... Who told you that?
God bless you, Ryan! R.I.P. Your stunts made me squirm & laugh & pray for you, too!
Yes you do have to be a bible beater to believe it, millions of people world wide do not believe in your fairy tales
..... see now the bible beaters are going to be coming out of the woodwork, Should you all be around after that Armageddon a few weeks ago? I thought things would be better after that happened.... Please end yourselves and go to your "maker". (don't forget your purple triangles and nikes)
Guys, this isn't about religion, sin, or anything like it. I'm just sayin....here's a funny guy. Hope he had faith. I'm no bible beater, just a believer in the one who loved us all so much that he died for us... it's simple...faith, not works. Peace to all .
This article is about a person who lost his life, not your "God doesn't exist" agenda. Go crawl back in the cesspool you evolved from.
Religion aside, RIP Ryan Dunn.
Thanx, Maxx! :-)
Jesus died on the cross for our sins 2000 years and was witnessed by thousands of people, he resurrected ascended to heaven, people can deny him all they want but when they die the only person that comes up in their mind is jesus "why didn't i accept jesus christ as my lord and savior."
u can lie to yourself all you want the world didn't evolve out of nothing, it makes no sense JESUS WHO IS GOD CREATED THE WORLD AND US STOP YOUR EVOLUTION FAIRY TALE NONSENSE, REPENT NOW.
A few hours before the crash, he posted a picture to his twitter account of him drinking. I assume that is why people believe that alcohol was a factor in the crash.
I thought Ryan Dunn was a great character (especially on Viva LaBam). Rest in Peace Ryan, you made us all laugh and you will be greatly missed.
I wonder if anyone thought to throw a bucket of water on his body after the accident.
Shocked by this. Very sad to see the group lose a member like this. RIP.
Darn. He was one of the funniest!
THIS was breaking news? Sorry for this man's family, but still...
I never watched the show, have no idea who this person is. But it is tragic. I do hope that his family uses this as an opportunity to remind people about that "point of no return" with your actions and inactions. From what I read, he was very talented, yet made a very deadly choice. One that could of cost others their lives, on that did cost him his. My condolences go out to his family and friends.
What is with the short stories lately. Is this EW?
It is tragic and sad. What an awful way that his life came to an end!!! He was SO young,- yet WHY did the 2 idiots and morons he sat with there at the BAR (DRINKING alcohol, mind everyone who reads this comment) LET him even get INTO the Vehicle AFTER alcohol was placed into his System (BODY)???!!!! Doesn't anyone give a damn anymore about those types of people (the ones who insist on DRIVING with alcohol in their systems???!!! What's the matter with some of you commenters??? He DIED a God-AWFUL, horrifying, tragic death!!! Think of THAT, why don't you??!!! Smarten Up, people!!! If you know ANYONE who has alcohol in the system, DON"T LET THEM DRIVE intoxicated (help to SAVE their lives!!!). Even the adrenalin (alone) AFTER the drink CAN be DANGEROUS!!!
He was a really funny guy.
R.I.P. Ryan Dunn!!!! Why does it always have to be the cool people?!?!?!?!
It's not always "the cool people" (sic). You're just not commenting on the stay-at-home mom and her 11-year-old son who were killed by a drunk driver yesterday on their way home from the dog park. Whether Ryan Dunnwas a cool person is open to debate. A lot of adjectives can be used, none of which are synonyms for "cool."
It's not always the cool people. First, if you think someone who drinks and drives habitually is "cool," you've got issues. (Yeah yeah go ahead and call me a prude, whatever.) And usually in something like this (which it looks like alcohol was involved) they usually take other people with them. Like the idiot that drove their SVU OVER one of my students car and killed their friend sitting in the middle seat. This sh!t is not cool. And people who do this "cool" sh!t usually die young and take others with them.
He was photographed 2hrs earlier drinking w/ friends... (tumblr)
So he's smoking and looking into a plastic cup of apple juice... I don't get what's so terrible about that...
I Love you Ryann
thanks for all the laughs buddy =(
The irony. RIP...
Thanks for the laughs and Prayers for the family
Big loss for comedy. RIP Dunn.
Philly is gonna miss you, bud.
that sucks... RIP
Drinking and driving kills even the wealthy. Thankfully he didnt kill anyone else because of his lack of discipline.
He had a passenger with him that was killed as well.
There were 2 people killed. It is unclear who was driving according to TMZ.
He killed the passenger in his vehicle. Still yet to be identified
Todd – legit news sources have already reported that Dunn was driving.
cause TMZ is always 100% correct, amirite?
Funny thing is Michelle, there aren't any news sites reporting that he was driving. Not CNN, not the Huffington Post, not Fox, not any of them.
Local CBS station in Philly reports he was driving. 3rd paragraph. Is this source "Legit" enough for you?
I'm thinking its how he would have wanted to go... beats old age
We all say that, when we are young. As an FYI, old age isn't bad – just different. In many ways, it's better than being 30.
I'll bet everything I own that you won't be saying that when you're 60.
What an incredibly ignorant statement. My guess is you've never lost anyone close to you at a young age. Life is precious. It should be cherished, not flushed down the toilet along with the hopes and dreams of another person. Sad and disgraceful. Even Steve-O got clean. Sheesh people.
Very sad news, but you make your bed. Drinking and driving just doesnt mix. RIP.
RIP ryan u. Brought many laughs to my house u will be very much missed. I was just tell my with the other day how he has a new show on g4
Yeah, it was great, they did a real Mario Kart and attached shock devices and shell launchers to real go karts. Such a shame, no more of those :(
Thanks for the laughs Ryan. I'll drink in your honor,tonight.
I will... sounds awesome.
Just don't get behind the wheel afterward.
He was just on NBC's Minute To Win It a few weeks ago with one of his co-stars. He seemed like a real down to earth guy. RIP
From what I hear he was. My roommate was a friend of his and they hung out fairly often for several years around when the show first started. Always said he was the most down to earth out of the bunch.
Rest in Piece
Peace, not piece. If you really meant piece, that's disgusting. He was in an awful car crash where he was burned alive, obviously his body was in pieces. Learn to spell.
I'm sure this is exactly how he would have wanted to go.
You think he would have wanted to go getting burned alive???
Yeah, a drunk, fiery car crash where he also caused the death of a friend. I'm sure that's how he always hoped he'd go.
Thanks for the hilarious times and all the laughs, Dunn. Rest in peace, buddy.
We are missing a big point. What about his family and friends? They are heartbroken, even the fans. He died and we are giving him hell. We should be more worried about everyone else. We can't go back and change what he did or didn't do. Look at the people who he left behind.
Katie, have you ever watched jacka$$? He made his living off of being a complete jerk to people. And I mean a TOTAL a$$ sometimes. I'm not going to sit here and trash him and say he deserves it, because I don't think anyone deserves it. But I'd be willing to put money if he were alive, he's be trashing this person if it were someone else. That's what he did. Heck, he'd probably enjoy most of the comments on here.
DUI @ 110mph... Yikes
Well I haven't seen yet that he was actually the one driving... but that could come out.
For one.. he was at the wrong place at the wrong time..anything could of Happend that night.
luca2009: that would be, in English, "anything could HAVE HAPPENED that night." Although there are plenty of details already released that are not reported here.
Why oh why do people have to drink and drive?????????
I mean, it's not like he couldn't afford a cab. Such a shame...
where did it say he was drinking? if it did let me know lol, but i didnt see it and its not fair to accuse someone who just died in a wreck of drinking.
Did I miss something here? Where does it say he was drinking?
never mind, did some research i take that back.
There was pics posted on his twitter account of him drinking hours prior to his death.
I just googled his name and he had tweeted a picture of himself drinking with friends at a bar... it was 3:30 am... he is kind of immature... it all adds up.
He posted a twitter pic not long before the accident of him drinking. Don't know if he was driving though, someone else in the car was killed too
Missed the part where this said drinking was involved..where was that?
Maybe ppl are saying he was drinking cause he posted a pic of him getting hammered earlier that night
TMZ reported that he was drinking before with some friends and he had someone in the car with him who also died.
Nothing wrong with partying, but don't get behind the wheel after. Expecially when you have the money to secure other means. RIP Ryan.
It's almost as if people here can't seem to get additional details about the death by googling it!
Nowhere does it say he was drinking and driving....
Jesus, people...google it. He posted a picture of himself and two other guys getting smashed earlier that night. Dunn was a notorious drinker, and a notoriously bad driver on top of that, April Margera said on one CKY DVD that Dunn had wrecked like 8 cars up to that point, they even had pictures of them, and that was when he was like mid 20's.
So yeah, while I don't know for certain that he was legally drunk at the time, I think any judge and jury in the world would think that was a reasonable assumption given the evidence.
I live in Oklahoma and a bill was just passed that puts heavier restrictions on DUIs. On the first offense, its required to have a breathalyzer/interlock for two years. Second offense, 5 years, third offense, 8 years. I have a friend that got a DUI and your licence is suspended during the time you have the interlock. Personally, I favor this new law.
I'm so sorry that I don't google something after I just read an article about it. I wasn't criticizing........just asking a question. Perhaps the problem isn't that I don't google things, perhaps the problem is that you use information from other sources to comment on articles that don't include said information.
That's the thing about the web, once it's out there you can't take it back.
The dude made a fortune out of being stupid.
Why would you expect his life to end any other way.
And all the ignorant morons here that don't want to mention his stupidity are the ones that made him wealthy.
The dumbing down of America is moving along quite nicely.
The twitter pictures were put up by hackers. They have been taken down
No court in the US would make a 'reasonable assumption' because there is no such thing in a court trial. Im not saying it wasn't drunk driving, but they would have to have a picture of the driver drinking. Either way it happened though it is an awfully sad affair, dude lived hard and fast I guess.
ya ... you go hail a cab out in West Goshin, PA. I'll wait here for ya ...
It didnt say he was drinking, there was a pic of him having a drink didn't say when, yes of was at a bar close by where he crashed, so please show some respect, and don't assume that he was a drunk or was drunk, That being said RIP Ryan
Uh, it didn't say he was drunk while driving. A picture with him holding a cup of beer suggest nothing. The bartender even said he didn't seem drunk, and that he was not a heavy drinker atleast from what he could see. Jumping to such a terrible conclusion about a dead person is disrespectful.
Thanks for the laughs Ryan! RIP
Don't mind Jeff, he is one of those miserable types that never made anything of his life and breast fed until he was in high school.
Amen Tim. He apparently combined drinking & driving then died in a fiery crash. That was stupid. I feel sorry for his family & friends left behind, but have no compassion for a drunk driver.
God bless you and your family. Thanks for the laughs Ryan. You will be missed
For one the guy just passed away, lets not sit here and say stupid stuff like oh why do people drink and drive! and this is why you dont drink and drive, show some respect for the dead people and start you own save the world campain when you dies.
RIP Bro you will be missed.
Dude, really... He should have stuck to using cannons and rocket powered bikes to get from place to place.
Let's leave the fairy tales out of it.
I guess one could say Ryan is Dunn Rip thanks for the laughs
Its truly sad, I was pretty surprised when I saw it, cause after watching those shows and everything they put themselves through you kinda of lose the idea that they can die....You were a funny F****r man, ill miss laughin at ya.
Wow... just met him in my hotel bar for drinks in cancun in march.. unbelievable.
Sad...but when you have such a lifestyle (and yes i dont mean to assume a drunk driver didnt hit him)...law of averages catches up. Life is worth having all the fun in the world. not worth loosing like this. This must have been a high speed-loose-control situation which is typical of guys that are addicted (medically) to high adrenalin.
RIP Ryan... you were hilarious and fun to watch for the whole family. Sad to see you go so young
I never knew someone could be as cold hearted as steve.
And on this day the world has lost it's Random Hero. You will be missed.
todd, what makes you think he died in a "totally generic way"? The first thing that came to my mind when I read the story is that he was doing some kind of crazy stunt involving a car on the highway.
Bob why not just leave fairies out of it. In other words stop posting Bob you knob.
I add my condolences and grief. I feel like those guys are brothers to me in all their high spirits and craziness. I know Ryan was a skilled stuntman and a bold, creative person, and he brought a lot of laughter to many people. What a tragedy.
He probably by accident lauched a butt rocket that propelled him into the roof of the auto, knocking him out then the crash.
Rayan RIP you will be missed and thanks for the good times you gave us on TV !!
Drunk drivers do not deserve respect. Drunk drivers deserve what happens to them, but so often they take others down with them as he did here with his passenger.
This loser squandered two lives. For nothing.
There we go another drunk killing themself and another. " Drunk driving often hurts more than the drunk driver. He not only killed himself but he killed another person lets not forget that. We should have no sympathy for him, he was only thinking of himself, your family could of been on the road that night.
When are people going to learn. "
And the winner of the 2011 Darwin Award is.....
And yet, somehow, he was still better than you. RIP Ryan
Too soon... funny.... but too soon
Thanks for the laugh man. That was funny. Dunn would have laughed too.
Hi, I am rude guy, I am a total idiot and moron, Iw ould liek to type more, but the boss jsut came in ,and I have to get back to stocking the shelves or else I will lose another minimum wage job, and I am no longer allwed to collect welfare since they found out I am the father of my suster's child. Rude Guy- you are not ever qualified to shine Ryan's shoes on your best day.
I just tinkled myself...
@matthew – maybe you should learn to spell or check grammar before calling someone a moron. I would recommend typing out your "thoughts" in Word, let Microsoft do the work for checking your spelling and grammar and once all the little colored squiggly lines are gone, copy and paste Microsoft's multiple corrections so you can appear able to form a coherent thought. If you need help on how to copy and paste you might be able to google that.
We all got to read some stupity in action. Thanks.
It has not been confirmed he was driving. Learn to read.
And I hope God forgives you for saying that. What happens after we die isn't up to us. He may have done something wrong, we don't know yet, but trash talking a guy the day he dies isn't rigiht either...
Chum, you’re so clever! Oh my god you are soooooooooo awesome and witty!
L2R, you learn to read. It HAS been confirmed he was driving. The only way they were able to identify him was because of the tattoos on his chest. Both of the bodies were charred.
JB, there is no god. Please take the preaching elsewhere.
Good riddance drunk driver! Bye bye!!
I'm sorry you were in an accident caused by a drunk driver ten years ago. It's ten years later, maybe you should get help for this anger you carry with you. Two people are dead, no matter the cause, and you want them to "rot in Hell"?
Good riddance. It is now 11:10 CST, there are no confirmed reports that he was driving. He probably was, but it has NOT been confirmed as of yet.
Thanks. I thought it was pretty clever and witty myself. Now go F yourself!
I thought he was God's image!
I've read all the garbage I intend to read. The fact remains, that while stupid, this is tragic. It's sad. Hateful comments only further prove that even though Ryan Dunn did something incredibly stupid, he was still more human than more than half the people commenting on his death. There is something bad wrong with our society for a man to die and then to be ridiculed postmortem. For Shame!
Our society has been messed up Alex. Watch MTV. When people drink and drive and take other lives with them..they probably need to be ridiculed.
They're mostly not hateful. His behavior (which many people here found funny, supported, and condoned) caused his death. How funny is it now? His death was reckless and predictible.
The only tragic part was the death of his poor passenger.
Very well put. Too bad they don't understand how karma can work. Betting they won't belive in it until it bites them or those they care about in the backside.
There is a God... I will admit people who preach it annoy me, because they most likely don't fully understand it... But people who say 'there isn't a god' annoy me just as much... You take other peoples views on God, and use that to base your thoughts on it. It is just another easy way out. You can think about God for 10,000 years, and not fully understand it.... sooo much easier to just say 'Nope, No God! I'm smart Hahahaha' *rolls eyes*
Yes, indeed the tragic part was that he brought someone else down with him.
The other tragic part was that this is in the news and that this person got their 15 minutes of fame and then some. It was a disgrace that he was allowed to have any mass influence on youth. The world should now be slightly better off.
Thank you, i have been trying to tell this to people all morning.
i need your facebook, i am in love with you now!
So... your post boils down to belief in a god, and being annoyed at those who say they don't. Although you don't like preaching, your post is preaching. Keep up the good work big guy, and thanks for being part of my daily dose of irony. :D
For the record, you could probably think about the universe in the absence of a deity for any amount of time, or with a deity, and be equally befuddled. Humans are just fairly puny on a cosmic scale, whatever you believe is the source of that cosmos. Your point is just... adorable.
Sure, there is a God.. Its in crazy peoples heads. That's why this planet is so FUBAR. You are talking about Zeus right? Dummies.
wow jonah23 you really laid out some knowledge there. i will change my ways right now since you say there is a god. im glad someone cleared that up. and all this time i thought religion was a form of mind control and a money making scheme. wow thanks for opening my eyes. so which of the hundreds of gods should i now believe in? i bet its that jesus guy i hear so much about
NO! We are the ONLY Planet in the Universe with LIFE ON IT! Cause that's the way "God" wanted it. Forget all about Raptor Jesus. Those dino bones are only 3K Year old. L M A O
Grow up POS
I SO want to meet "raptor jesus". :D
What does your post have to do with the article. Sorry God is offensive to you but you are offensive to me since you a re a complete window licking blithering idiot that fathoms yourself intelligent. Grow up before posting again little punk pos.
Raptor Jesus .... Lord and Savior since 70,000,000 BC ~Because He was HERE FIRST!
since his post is removed i can only assume he touched on some tightly held belief of yours. Since i cant speak on what he said i will say this. you tell him to grow up after saying, "you a re a complete window licking blithering idiot that fathoms yourself intelligent." very mature. very civil. and what an excellent way to show your level of intelligence on arguing a point. i don't believe in god, it doesn't annoy me when people discuss it since i believe debate is healthy.
may your family be next in line then
Yeah not funny or witty is it?
Just like you. Naming yourself after a fat lazy slug from a pawn store marks you for your true mental capacity. There is nothing witty about you, or him. Now kindly go die and take Dunn's place since he actually was liked by other human beings and will be missed, unlike you or anyone you care for. Karma is a beast bro, you will find that out someday soon enough though.
Mr gammaor polize make muh laufh go foawk yourse;f in urt anuz how moe
Psalm 14:1-3 The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none that does good. The LORD looks down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there are any that act wisely, that seek after God. They have all gone astray, they are all alike corrupt; there is none that does good, no, not one.
