Ryan Dunn Car Crash Pictures | Ryan Dunn Crash Photos

Ryan Dunn Car Crash Pictures - Ryan Dunn, of 'Jackass' fame, was involved in a fatal car crash early this morning, killing himself and his passenger. Dunn was driving his Porsche 911 GT3, which was found off the road and engulfed in flames, according to a statement by the police of West Goshen, Pennsylvania.

TMZ revealed photos that Dunn posted pictures of himself and friends drinking hours before the crash, however the official police report cites 'excessive speed' as a contributing factor in the accident, and so far has not made any statements about whether alcohol factored in the crash.

Celebrities quickly shared their reactions to the news through Twitter, including some of Dunn's co-stars.

There is not yet an official cause for the crash, though Dunn posted to Twitter this picture of himself drinking with friends hours before it took place.

The Associated Press has released a series of photos from the scene of the car crash. See those below. Police say that Dunn and one passenger died in the accident.

Local news confirms that Dunn, speeding, hit the right guard rail. The car crash sent the Porsche over the guardrail, landing into thick brush, and bursting into flames.

West Goshen Township Police Department officials tell news that they were able to identify Dunn by his tattoos. Local news has reportedly indentified the passenger; that person’s identity has yet to be released pending notification of family members. Of note, earlier today, April Margera suggested that they may been a third occupant of the car.

The crash happened at 3:30 am. That section of Route 322 remained closed until roughly 9:30 am, reported local news.

Beyond his appearances in Jackass, Dunn also appeared in Blonde Ambition (opposite Jessica Simpson) and Law and Order SUV. He was currently working on “Proving Ground” for the G4 Network.

Funeral arrangements are pending. In a news statement released Monday, MTV says “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.”
