Jackass Star Ryan Dunn Dies in Car Accident

Jackass Star Ryan Dunn had survived numerous dangerous stunts, but not a car crash at West Goshen Township near Philadelphia on Monday.

The 34-year-old celeb was traveling on Route 322 and New Street when his Porsche swerved and crashed into a tree. The car then burst into flames, reports said.

According to reports, Dunn and his passenger, Zachary Hartwell, were both pronounced dead at the crash site.

Police commented that the two were seen leaving a pub in West Chester shortly before the accident. Also, Dunn was driving at 100 mph speed rate on a 55 mph zone.

Though Dunn was known as a professional stuntman, he was not able to overcome the blunt force which resulted from the car crash. Also, his speeding and DUI violations led to his tragic end.

In California, it is illegal for a driver to exceed the speed limit of 60 mph on freeways and 25 mph in populated areas. Also, adult motorists are mandated to abide with 0.08 percent limit on alcohol intake. Police officers enforce this law to reduce the danger on highways and to prevent catastrophic crashes from happening.

Sadly, Dunn failed to abide with the rules and this mistake directly caused his death. Nevertheless, his death will remind other drivers to abide with traffic laws and to prioritize their safety at all times.
