Details are still coming in, but several sources are reporting that Ryan Dunn, one of the stars of MTV's Jackass franchise, died in a car accident early Monday morning. TMZ broke the story at around 10 a.m. EST, and since then, several news sources have confirmed the report.
The accident reportedly took place at around 3 a.m. EST in West Goshen, Pennsylvania, about 20 miles west of Philadelphia. Dunn and an unidentified person were in the car, which went off the highway and through a metal guardrail. A further report identifed Dunn as the driver, and local police reportedly said the car was "fully engufled in flames" and "in the woods".
Just hours before, Dunn uploaded to his Twitter feed a photo of himself and friends drinking. The cause of the accident is still undetermined, but officials say that "speed may have been a contributing factor to the accident."
