Margera says he would have told Dunn not to drive that night.
Bam Margera, Ryan Dunn’s costar on Jackass, told E magazine that he was in a car with Ryan Dunn that flipped eight times in 1996. Dunn died recently in a car crash in suburban Philadelphia when his car skidded off the road and burst into flames, killing Dunn and a passenger.
“He flipped me in a car eight times at the same exact spot in 1996,” Margera said. “Thank God I had my seat belt on, because [mutual friend and ‘Jackass’ co-star] Chris Raab put one on me, but my brother didn’t have one on. He flew 40 feet. Thank God he’s alive. But, like, Dunn was always a maniac at driving.”
Margera also spoke about his final conversation with Dunn before Dunn went to bar before he died in the crash that night.
“Stopping for a beer, be there when I can,” was the last message sent from Dunn the night of the accident.
Margera says Dunn wouldn’t have listened to him if he had tried to take away his car keys that night.
