Ryan Dunn of Jackass, Died by Drunk Driving

Post by Claire on Tue Jun 21, 2011 2:38 pm

Firstly, I want to say that I was a big fan of Ryan Dunn before his death, and I'm saddened to see him gone, but before I go any further, you should watch this video.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUtyjq1yT9A

The person who made this video provides a very strong point, one I can't even disagree with. Ryan Dunn was killed in a car accident because he was drunk behind the wheel. He was driving with his friend in the car, and was speeding at 110 MPH in a 35 MPH zone. Both he and his friend died in the crash because Ryan was being no less than a moron. I know that being drunk can impair your decision-making skills, but there is still enough self-control and common sense not to get into a car while you're drunk and Ryan has become a big poster icon to go against such idiocy. Like I said, I loved him in Jackass, and I'm not glad he's dead, but I don't think we should giving him a memorial for the way he decided to end his life and his friend's.

If anyone else has any comments, please share.

Gotta agree on the drunk thing, we can't really encourage the guys actions. Though I hope people won't be warned away from the inspiration he has caused to do daft insane things, sometimes the daft things make life worth living.

Theres a thin line between enjoy life to the fullest and do what you like and then just being insanely stupid.

Going to miss ya Dunn though

The local news here in PA has been talking about him nonstop since the accident. I mean, he is a local Pennyslvanian and used to constantly bump around the eastern side of the state.

I met Dunn, he was actually a pretty cool dude. Since he lived only like 20 minutes away, me or someone I knew would run into him or any other dude from Bam Margera's group.

Needless to say, he was a jackass (no pun). He lived how he died, stupidly. Drinking wasn't the only thing he was into. Pretty much the entire Jackass crew was into smoking or something, Steve-O having the worst addictions. Dunn was a funny guy but he decided to be a dumbass and killed himself and his friend after a night of good times.

It's a shame to see him go, I know I personally laughed at him and the rest of the jackass crew's antics whenever I watched them. Out of curiosity, did they figure out who was driving the car, Dunn or his friend?

I've never heard of him, but it's always sad such things happen Sad

I just think it's kinda weird to make such a drama when someone is well-known, while this also happens to a lot of "normal" people everyday.

Dunn was the driver. Going 110 in 35 mph zone. Crashed into the woods and died from blunt trauma and/or burning. Pretty bad, and I agree with you smiles, he will probably have candle vigils and whatnot, whereas a normal person would just been (oh whatever, they got what they deserved, and move on)

I'm not entirely sure what to say, I mean I saw Jackass a few times, but i still can't remember him. Anyway, what he did was pretty dumb, you should know never to drink and drive and i hope he gets more remembrance for him being a good comedian on TV than that.

I only heard about this a couple of days ago, but It's sad that he had to do something like that to get himself killed. Especially when you see all the stupid crap they do on Jackass and what not, nethertheless he will be missed.
