In one of the most tragic occurrence, Ryan Dunn died in a car crash during a drunk driving incident.

Dunn, who was 34 when he died, drove off the road at 130 miles per hour at 2:30 in the morning. Zachary Hartwell, a Jackass production assistant, was a passenger in the car.

According to a toxicology report that was later released, Dunn’s blood-alcohol level was .196 which is twice the legal limit in Pennsylvania when he died.
