Death On Route 322 - 'Jackass' Star And Daredevil Ryan Dunn Dies In Car Crash
The film and television actor apparently crashed his car around 3 a.m. EDT last night (June 20 (Summer Solstice), 2011) at the intersection of Route 322 and New Street in West Goshen Township, Pennsylvania. TMZ confirmed the death with April Margera, the mother of fellow "Jackass" star Bam Margera. Though no official cause for the accident has been determined as of yet, Dunn posted this picture of him drinking on his Twitter account, shortly before the believed time of the accident.
Police have confirmed Zachary Hartwell 30 (above right), perished in a fireball car crash in the early hours of yesterday morning. Hartwell, from West Chester, Philadelphia, had been with Dunn at Barnaby's and appeared in one of the last photographs to be taken of the daredevil before the accident.
According to the Chester County Coroner, Dunn and 30-year-old Zachary Hartwell were both dead before police arrived at the scene of the accident, which occurred around 2:30 a.m. on Monday in West Goshen Township, when the amateur daredevil's 2007 Porsche 911 GTS swerved off the road and flew through 40 yards of trees before hitting one and bursting into flames.
