West Goshen Police Chief Michael Carrol told Radar Online: ‘I’ve never seen a car destroyed in an automobile accident the way this car was even before it caught on fire. It was unbelievable and I’ve been on a lot of fatal accident scenes.
This is by far the worse I’ve ever seen.’ Yesterday, Dunn’s passenger was named as Zachary Hartwell, a close friend of Dunn and a production assistant on the second Jackass film.
Knoxville, who starred alongside Dunn on the hit MTV show, posted the touching letter on his Dickhouse Entertainment page over the weekend, describing the late 34-year old as "loyal and loving." He also recalled how he found it difficult to speak about Ryan at his memorial service in West Chester, following Johnny explained: "I walked to the podium and tried to share memories of my dear friend, but the words were just spinning in my head.
What came out were the mumblings of a man trying his best not to cry, and I wasn't even successful at that." "I didn't break down, because I knew Angie or his family didn't need to see that, but I also didn't get to properly convey what Ryan meant to me.
From inserting a toy car in a place few things should go to, to crashing everything from shopping carts to golf carts and more, Ryan Dunn was no stranger to taking risks to get a good laugh.
Sadly, Dunn's memories also include a fatal crash after the performer was killed in an automobile crash on June 20, 2011, in Pennsylvania. Featured in "Jackass: The Movie," Ryan Dunn gives us arguably the greatest Ryan Dunn moment of all time, for which he is being remembered the most in all the obituaries, when he inserts a little toy car into his rectum.
RIP Ryan , I love you buddy.(sic)" Just hours before the accident the 34-year-old star posted pictures of himself drinking with friends and an unknown person also died in the crash.
It is not yet known who was driving the car, which police say was "fully engulfed in flames" when they arrived.
This is a video that not only proves what the man was willing to do to entertain his fans, but the amount of abuse his body could take.In addition to the 'Jackass' movies - which showed a group of men undertaking dangerous stunts - Ryan also starred in 'Viva La Bam' and MTV show 'Homewrecker'. Knoxville, 40, spoke at Dunn's memorial service on Wednesday, but he took to his blog to say "what I wished I could have told everyone then."
