SAD NEWS Jackass star Ryan Dunn dies in car crash inferno
The MTV star's 2007 Porsche went over a rail and hit a tree before catching fire at around 3.30am yesterday morning. No other vehicles were involved.
Ryan's death was confirmed when co-star Bam Margera phoned a radio show to say his friend had been killed.
Just hours earlier Ryan, 34 - famed for his dangerous stunts and trademark beard - had Tweeted a photo of himself on a night out with friends.
'Today I lost my brother Ryan Dunn. My heart goes out to his family and his beloved Angie. RIP Ryan , I love you buddy,' Ryan's fellow Jackasser Johnny Knoxville wrote on Twitter last night.
