WEST GOSHEN, Pa. -- Ryan Dunn, one of the stars of the TV and movie series JACK ARSE was killed early Monday in a single-car accident in Pennsylvania. He was 34 years old.
Police said Dunn crashed his 2007 Porsche while driving in West Goshen, Pa. -- about 35 miles (56 kilometers) west of Philadelphia -- at around 2:38am Monday, TMZ reported.
Dunn and his passenger, who has not yet been identified, "died as a result of injuries sustained in the accident," according to police.
West Goshen police said Dunn's Porsche was found in a wooded area off the road, "fully engulfed in flames." They said speed may have been a contributing factor in the accident. An investigation into the crash is ongoing.
A few hours before his death, Dunn posted a photo to Twitter of himself drinking with two other men.
He appeared in all three seasons of the JACK ARSE TV series on MTV and all three movies, most recently 'JACK ARSE 3D" in 2010. He was also a host of the series "Proving Ground," which premiered June 14 on cable network G4.
"We are devastated by the tragic loss of Ryan Dunn -- a beloved member of the MTV family for more than a decade," MTV Networks Music/Films Group President Van Toffler said in a statement. "He made us all laugh and had the tireless enthusiastic approach to life of your favorite middle school friend. Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with Ryan's family and friends."
April Margera, mother of Dunn's JACK ARSE costar Bam Margera, told Radar Online that Dunn was like her "extra son."
"I have not been able to talk with Bam as he is in Arizona but I cannot believe that his friend is dead," she said. "I felt like I lost one of my own sons when I heard that Ryan Dunn had died."
She said Dunn left behind a long-term girlfriend.
JACK ARSE star and co-creator Johnny Knoxville said on Twitter, "Today I lost my brother Ryan Dunn. My heart goes out to his family and his beloved Angie. RIP Ryan, I love you buddy."
Jason "Wee Man" Acuna, another JACK ARSE cast member, tweeted, "I MISS YOU BUD!! You were always a happy kick-ass dude!!"
