According to police, the Jackass and former Viva La Bam star's Porsche sped over a guardrail, smashed into a tree and then burst into flames after he lost control of his vehicle in West Goshen, PA, NBC's WCAU-TV affiliate in Philadelphia Jackass-Star-Ryan-Dunn-Dies-in-Car-Accident-124184189.html">reported Monday.

"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," MTV said in a statement released via Twitter.

The 34-year-old reality TV star reportedly had one passenger in the car who was also killed but has yet to be identified.

The two bodies were pulled from the rubble, and according to a witness who was at the scene, Dunn's tattoos revealed his identity, WCAU-TV reported.

April, the mother of fellow Jackass and former Viva La Bam star Bam Margera, reportedly called into Preston and Steve's 93.3 WMMR morning radio show to confirm one of Jackass' stars had been killed in a car accident -- which took place around 2:30AM on Route 322, according to a West Goshen police officer.

Alcohol may have played a role in the crash, as Dunn had posted a picture of himself drinking with two men on his Tumblr account just two hours before the accident occurred.

No other cars were involved in the crash, according to WCAU-TV.
