Jackass star Ryan Dunn dies in car crash

After making a career out of performing insane stunts, Jackass star Ryan Dunn sadly passed away after a car accident in the early hours of Monday 20 June 2011.

It was fellow Jackass star Bam Margera’s mother April Margera who confirmed Dunn's death.

The crash occurred on Route 322 and New Street, Pennsylvania, where the car allegedly hit a tree and burst into flames. Another unidentified passenger was also killed.

Jackass co-stars and close friends have been expressing their devastation on Twitter. Johnny Knoxville tweeted: "Today I lost my brother Ryan Dunn.

"My heart goes out to his family and his beloved Angie. RIP Ryan , I love you buddy."

He will no doubt be missed, though a certain prank involving a toy car ensures he'll never be forgotten.
