Ryan Dunn'Jackass' star Ryan Dunn died early this morning in a Pennsylvania car crash. April Margera, mother of fellow 'Jackass' daredevil Bam Margera, confirmed to TMZ that Dunn was killed in the car wreck that also killed one other person who has yet to be identified.

The 34-year-old was a part of the 'Jackass' film franchise -- often pulling off eyebrow raising stunts to the delight of his fellow thrill-seeking buddies.

Just hours before his death, Dunn tweeted photo of himself and two pals -- documenting their night out, beer and cigarette in hand.

A photo of the charred wreckage of the car was posted on Twitter and Flickr, apparently by the towing company. The image shows the extent of the fire that must have engulfed the vehicle.

Just hours before his death, Dunn tweeted photo of himself and two pals -- documenting their night out, beer and cigarette in hand.

Although it has not yet been confirmed who was driving the vehicle when it crashed or the cause of the accident, according to Chester County's Daily Local News, Chief Deputy Coroner David Garner confirmed that there was only one vehicle involved in the crash.

"Preliminary investigation revealed that speed may have been a contributing factor to the accident," police said in a statement.

96.1's The Morning Freak Show is reporting that Dunn was at the wheel when his Porsche careened over the road's guardrail and into the woods before bursting into flames. The collision occurred at roughly 3:00 AM Monday morning on Pennsylvania's Route 322.

The identity of Dunn's passenger will be revealed pending autopsy results due out later today.
