TMZ has confirmed through April Margera, the mother of Dunn’s ‘Jackass’ costar, Bam Margera, that Dunn was killed in the one-car wreck that also left one other, who has yet to be identified, dead.
The Morning Freak Show on 96.1 reported that Dunn was driving his Porsche, when it careened over the road’s guardrail and into the woods at roughly 3:00AM this morning on Route 322. The car burst into flames.
A photo of the charred wreckage was posted on Twitter, apparently by the towing company. They were quickly taken down but uploaded on Flickr.
Both bodies suffered severe burns in the wreck, and emergency responders could not immediately identify them, but police have confirmed that one of the victims was Dunn. The identity of Dunn’s passenger will be revealed pending autopsy results due out later today.
According to police, a “preliminary investigation revealed that speed may have been a contributing factor to the accident.”
Just hours before his death, Dunn tweeted a photo of himself and two pals — documenting their night out, beer and cigarette in hand.
