Mourners Attend Ryan Dunn Memorial

Johnny Knoxville and Bam Margera were among hundreds of mourners who gathered Wednesday to pay respects to Jackass star Ryan Dunn. The private memorial service was held at a West Chester, Pennsylvania funeral home.

Dunn, 34, and his friend Zachary Hartwell died early Monday morning in a car accident on a Pennsylvania highway. Police say Dunn had a blood alcohol level of 0.196 and was speeding between 132 – 140 mph when his Porsche careened off the highway, crashed into trees and burst into flames. Autopsy reports say both Dunn and Hartwell suffered “blunt and thermal trauma.”

Dunn starred on all three seasons of “Jackass” with Knoxville, Margera and Steve O. He also appeared in the three “Jackass” films, the most recent being 2010’s “Jackass 3D.” After MTV canceled “Jackass” in 2002, Dunn and Margera appeared in the spin-off show “Viva La Bam.” Dunn later landed his own show, “Homewrecker.” It was canceled after just one season. Dunn most recently appeared alongside Steve O on “Minute to Win It.
