Longtime member of Jackass Ryan Dunn is dead at 34 after crashing his car while performing a stunt in a Philadelphia suburb early this morning at 3:30am.

The toxicology report by the coroner states Dunn’s blood alcohol concentration was 0.196%, which is more than twice the legal state limit of 0.08 when Dunn’s car crashed going over 130 miles per hour.

Many thought his death was a hoax that Jackass is commonly known for pulling on fans, but not this time.

Another person was in the car who was also killed, 30 year old Zachary Hartwell who starred in some of Dunn’s movies as a stunt car driver.

Ryan Dunn tweeted this picture hours before the accident of him drinking what appears to be an alcoholic beverage with friends.  The manager of Barnaby's in West Chester confirmed that the photo was taken in his bar Sunday night. The bar is about a mile away from where Dunn was killed in a car crash.

Hours before the car crash that killed him, Dunn posted a photo to the internet of him drinking what looks to be an alcoholic beverage.

“He didn’t seem to be intoxicated at the time he left,” Jim O’Brien, the manager of the bar Dunn was drinking at said. “Ryan was not a hardcore drinker, at least not when he was here.”

You can read the police report here that states Dunn was the driver of the car that killed him. The report states that Dunn lost control of the car before it skidded off the highway and burst into flames after crashing. Dunn’s car was reportedly travelling about 132 miles per hour at the time of the crash.

MTV released a statement about Dunn:

“We’re deeply saddened by the passing of a member of the MTV family, Ryan Dunn. Our hearts and thoughts are with his friends and family.”

Dunn became famous on Jackass in a notable incident where he inserted a Hot Wheels car into his anus and went to a doctor complaining of pain. The doctor then took an x-ray to discover the car appearing in his rectum.
