Car Crash: Ryan Dunn Killed in Porsche GT3 Crash

Jackass star Ryan Dunn (34) died in a car accident this morning with his Porsche 911 GT3. He was killed after his Porsche flew over a guardrail in West Goshen, Pennsylvania according to the West Goshen Police Department.

Dunn’s 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 was in flames in a wooded area near Rt. 322 and the Pottstown Pike when police arrived around 3am. The police believe excessive speed may have contributed to the accident. Ryan Dunn’s unknown passenger also died in the crash.

Ryan Dunn participated in nearly every Gumball 3000 and Bullrun Rally between 2003 and 2007.

Update 2: The police report says Ryan Dunn was the driver and both driver and the not yet identified passenger died in the crash. A picture of Ryan Dunn and two friends drinking posted on Twitter a few hours prior to the accident fuels speculation that alcohol also played a role in the accident.

  1. great guy. He didn’t do 01. 03 Gumball was his first. Great day on the salt flats in that picture on the Bullrun. Really sad news.

  2. His credo always was:”Live fast, die young!” But endagering other or even killing them shows how incapable and stupid he was despite an advanced age.

  3. Well, I am not fan of Jackass, but it’s very sad when someone so young dies….I think they’re not sure who was driving, so let’s not be too judgemental yet

  4. @Johnnie Walker: If this was someone like any number of “irresponsible celebrities”, I’d totally agree with you, but despite his antics, he seemed to have a good head on his shoulders and I highly doubt he got by all these years pushing the limit-including: drinking and driving. Who knows if he was even drunk, that pic taken might have been the the only drink he had that night or one of a few, hours before he drove. I don’t know, but it’s incredibly attention-grabbing and ignorant to shame someone without knowing the full, conclusive facts.

  5. at jonnie walker dude ur stupid his motto was live fast die fun jus like the clothes brand famous an the pik that was posted that couldve been his only drink of the night but he was a hell of a guy its not like he said hey im gunna go kill us thats why its called an accident i seriously doubt he did it on person maybe a bad judgement call but he didnt deserve to die R.I.P 77 – 11 will be missed
