ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Ryan Dunn’s crash photos depicted the speed at the time of impact, report local law enforcement to news. Ryan Dunn at the time of the crash (pictures below) may have been speeding, reports the West Goshen Township Police Department in a statement to news Monday. Hours earlier, Dunn posted a picture of himself to Tumblr apparently drinking. The crash scene pictures show a right guard rail on Route 322 bent horizontally to the right, and ripped off its anchored footing.
In a news briefing Monday, West Goshen Township Police Department officials confirm that Ryan Dunn was the driver of the car involved in Monday’s crash. Dunn was behind the wheel of his 2007 Porsche 911 GT3. Aerial news footage from the local FOX affiliate shows that the Dunn was travelling on Route 322 though a densely wooded area. At the spot of the car crash, Route 322 is a four lane highway surrounded by dense trees and foliage.
Local news confirms that Dunn, speeding, hit the right guard rail. The car crash sent the Porsche over the guardrail, landing into thick brush, and bursting into flames.
West Goshen Township Police Department officials tell news that they were able to identify Dunn by his tattoos. Local news has reportedly indentified the passenger; that person’s identity has yet to be released pending notification of family members. Of note, earlier today, April Margera suggested that they may been a third occupant of the car.
The crash happened at 3:30 am. That section of Route 322 remained closed until roughly 9:30 am, reported local news.
Beyond his appearances in Jackass, Dunn also appeared in Blonde Ambition (opposite Jessica Simpson) and Law and Order SUV. He was currently working on “Proving Ground” for the G4 Network.
Funeral arrangements are pending. In a news statement released Monday, MTV says “We’re deeply saddened by the passing of a member of the MTV family, Ryan Dunn. Our hearts and thoughts are with his friends and family.”
