'Jackass' star Ryan Dunn killed in car crash

NBC Philadelphia reports today that Ryan Dunn, a star of MTV's "Jackass" franchise," was killed in a car crash in West Goshen, Pa., around 3:30 this morning.
The report says April Margera, mother to fellow "Jackass" star Bam Margera, called in to the 96.1-FM Kiss morning show to announce Dunn's death.

The radio station reports that a passenger with Dunn was killed. That person has yet to be identified. Dunn was driving his Porsche when he apparently lost control and crashed into the woods.

Dunn posted the following photo on his blog and Twitter account of himself approximately 10 hours ago.

Never one to chicken out on any dangerous "Jackass" stunt, you could argue that Dunn was the most fearless of his motley crew. Along with Margera and ringleader Johnny Knoxville, Dunn constantly risked his life in the name of getting a laugh or two, even if it was just his own.

Dunn was 34.
