Ryan Dunn, a man who once shoved a toy car up his rectum in the name of entertainment, is dead at 34. Dunn was an original member of the “Jackass” crew famously led by Johnny Knoxville and appeared in all three “Jackass” movies and the TV show that preceded them.
Dunn was reportedly involved in a car crash in Pennsylvania early Monday morning. Dunn and another unidentified person both died in the crash which took place around 3:30 a.m. in West Goshen Township. According to TMZ, the car caught fire in the crash.
There’s no word on whether alcohol was a factor in the crash, but TMZ did discover that Dunn tweeted this photo of himself (left) and his friends drinking just hours before the crash:
