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

April, the mother of fellowJackass 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.
