More loss is being reported this morning. ‘Jackass’ alumnus, Ryan Dunn, was killed in car crash.
Bam Margera confirmed the unfortunate news this morning. Dunn and a friend, currently being identified as Zac Hartwell, wrecked in Pennsylvania around 3 A.M. The 34 year old’s Porsche busted across a guardrail in West Goshen and hit a tree. TMZ mentions that the car became engulfed in flames and was towed hours later.
Ryan shared a photo of himself drinking with friends on his tumblr account (seen below) about 2 hours before the crash claimed his life. (It has now been removed from his account.) I could prattle on about drinking and driving along with the consequences, but I think things like this speak for themselves. Lets hope he didn’t claim the lives of any innocent travelers.
Our condolences to his family and friends.
UPDATE: Friends of Dunn have confirmed that he was drinking at Barnaby’s of America in West Chester. They claim he had “at least 3 beers and 3 shots” in a span of 4 hours (estimated between 10:30 PM and 2:10). Another friend confirmed seeing him drink 3 Miller Lites and a 3 “girly shots.” Another bar patron told TMZ he was “wasted” and added he “had a lot to drink.” The photo with a full beer in his hand was posted around 1 A.M. Police are also suggesting speed “may have been a contributing factor” to the wreck.
UPDATE 2: Police have confirmed that Zac Hartwell was the passenger in the crash. He is pictured in the photo of Ryan drinking. Zac is on the far right in the green plaid shirt.
