Reality star Ryan Dunn killed in car crash

Jackass star Ryan Dunn, who also appeared on MTV reality series such as Viva La Bam and G4′s new series Proving Ground, died early this morning in a car crash. He was 34.

NBC’s Philadelphia affiliate reports that “Dunn was killed early Monday morning when his Porsche flew over a guardrail in West Goshen, Pa., slammed into a tree and burst into flames, according to local police. Dunn’s passenger — who hasn’t been identified — was also killed. Dunn was identified by his tattoos, according to a witness who was on the scene when the bodies were pulled from the wreckage.”

His final post to Twitter last night was a photo that showed Ryan and two friends drinking.
