Ryan Dunn

Alright, so no doubt everyone's heard about CKY and Jackass star Ryan Dunn passing away this morning. If you haven't this morning around 2:30 am Ryan's 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 drove hit a guardrail and landed in a tree bursting into flames killing himself and 1 passenger.

R.I.P Ryan Dunn and Passenger

R.I.P, he was probably under the influence or just driving like a bat out of hell (I think he's infamous for crashing cars) but it's still sad. Some comedy gold in Jackass and Viva La Bam

A DUI wasnt included in the death report so i think that means he wasnt over the limit. if i had a porsche 911 gt3 i would have too much fun too

It's being reported as an accident right now, not a DUI pending a toxicology report which will determine whether or not alcohol was a factor. It sucks that it happened but these are the consequences of drinking and driving. Mixed reports have been coming through from various sources who were at the bar saying he was anywhere between completely sober and really wasted.

It seems that there is little doubt that alcohol was a contributing factor. Regardless, dead is dead. RIP.

I won't post the tow truck photo but it appears he was going at a high rate of speed too considering what was left of the car. Whether or not alcohol was related it's still sad. R.I.P. two fellow human beings.

On a side note. Roger Ebert got a tounge lashing from Bam Margera about this..

Roger Ebert: "Friends don't let jackasses drink and drive."

Bam Margera: I just lost my best friend I have been crying hysterical for a full day and piece of shit roger ebert has the gall to put in his 2 cents. Fuck you! Millions of people are crying right now, shut your fat fucking mouth!"

Yeah, I read that.

I also saw what are reportedly photos of the vehicle. It's not recognizable. Like a crushed, burnt up aluminum can. You have to be driving pretty damn fast to destroy a car in that fashion.

Suprised that he's the first of that bunch to go.

Funny guy.

Suprised this didn't kill him first - YouTube - ‪Jackass Ryan Dunn‬‏

So many runs so little time.

Hard to feel sympathetic toward someone that is drunk and died as a result

...but like someone stated, dead is dead. R.I.P.

November needs to hurry up and come
