UPDATE: 'Jackass' Star Ryan Dunn is Dead

Jun 20, 2011 | 6:01am EDT

Update:  It has been discovered that Dunn had consumed a lot alcohol at Barnaby's of America in West Chester, PA before getting behind the wheel this morning.  One of Dunn's friends said he had 3 Miller Lites and 3 "girly shots" between 10:30 PM and 2:10 AM but he was "not too drunk to drive."  There's a bit of discrepancy as to whether or not this was indeed the case since an observer at the bar claims that Dunn was "wasted"  and "had a lot to drink."  Whose statement is accurate?  Police believe that speed may have been a factor in causing the crash.  All signs seem to suggest that this sad event was the cause of drunk driving.

Earlier: Today is a very sad to for all Jackass fans.  It has been confirmed by Bam Margera's mother that Jackass star Ryan Dunn died in a car crash in Pennsylvania early this morning at the age of 34.  Dunn and an unknown second victim both died in the crash around 3 a.m. at Route 322 and New Street in the West Goshen Township.  No one is sure who was driving the car.  Just hours before the accident occurred, Dunn tweeted a picture of him and some friends having a few drinks.


Dunn has appeared in all of the Jackass movies and was well liked by co-workers and viewers alike.  His debut into show business is unlike any other - he shoved a toy car into his rectum as a stunt in the first movie in 2002.  RIP Dunn - you will be missed!
