    Oh Ryan Dunn. This is such a bum out piece of news to report! The police have revealed that Jackass star Ryan Dunn was drunk when he crashed his Porsche on a Pennsylvania highway while going as fast as 140 mph. Drinking and driving at 140 mph? That is a recipe for disaster, which is the fate that Dunn met. What a shame. He was one of my Jackass crew faves.

    Dunn, 34, died along with his friend Zachary Hartwell, 30, from West Chester, Penn. Both men suffered "blunt and thermal trauma" in the crash, which turned Dunn's car into a fireball, according to the autopsy report. The remnants of the car didn't even look like they were ever part of a vehicle. It was that bad.

    PEOPLE reports that Dunn was driving at twice the legal limit, with authorities saying toxicology results put his blood alcohol concentration at 0.196 percent, while the legal state limit is 0.08.

    RIP, Ryan Dunn.

    What do you think of this news? It is still a tragedy, regardless.
