He twittered pictures of him drinking earlier that night from what I have heard on the news. What an idiot, get drunk, drive fast in your sports car, and kill you and a friend. He really was a jackass. RIP idiot. From the looks of the car he was flying really fast.

Well if he was drunk I'd argue that he did deserve it. Better himself than plowing into a innocent family with kids.

Next time you see someone get into a car to drive who was drinking use this as a reminder to stop them.

It doesn't matter the friend went willingly. That is also bad judgement but when you drive a car you take the lives of the passengers in your hands. You are responsible for them. That is how I was taught to drive and the law agrees with me. People are in prison right now for that very thing.

Both people made bad decisions. The passenger could've protected himself from the other guy's bad decision (by not getting in the car) but didn't. Whether the blame is shared equally or not is up for debate but they both made tragic mistakes.

Classic. I know my grammar stinks so I don't play English teacher. Mostly its because I don't try very hard. Its not like we are in school. Trust me I have someone proof read all my handbills and anything on the webpage for the band lol. But to make a grammar mistake, while correcting a grammar mistake, is the most embarrassing thing that can happen to someone. This turd should just delete his profile and start over.

Funny as I read this that you wanted to correct someone on using a specific word as tweeting or twittered. I bolded the best part of this sentence too (and not "to"). Ironic I must say. As for someone deserving to die, if you drink that much and then get into a car and go 110 MPH, you are asking for the ultimate consequences. Add a person into the car or a family getting killed as the result of the actions and somehow I cannot fault a poster for claiming he deserved what he got. Harsh words? Yes, but the circumstances might be in agreement with those that want to use the word "deserved".
As for anyone ripping on Ebert for tweeting "...Friend don't let jackasses drink and drive", is completely wrong. His tweet wasnt in bad taste and if you are going to be in a movie called Jackass, expect those type of tweets. Dunn was good in the Viva La Bam shows on VH1, I thought.

How about those that have a never went 110 MPH or killed someone? Sure I have driven home over the .08 mark. I am going to go out on a limb that he was going 110MPH and couldnt control his car because he was stinking drunk. When I was barely over the legal limit, I had both hands on the wheel and going the speed limit or a tad over it. Don't give us this crap about us not being able to judge Dunn based on his decision to be completely smashed and then did the same to him and his car.

He died a dip**** but that doesnt mean what he did before this stupid mistake takes that away from him. You can go back and see if I said anything about him before the accident. I stated I liked him on Viva La Bam show but in this scene, he is the biggest jackass EVA!

Sometimes innocent people have accidents. Sometimes accidents are set up by a series of horrible decisions. If the guy was speeding and got into a wreck, I'd say it happens. Once I find out he was not just speeding but going 120, I say he was stupid. Once I hear he was going 120 after spending the night drinking, I say he was insanely stupid.

I'm not gonna go pee on the grave but to say we shouldn't judge someone being so wrecklessly stupid is silly. If he were trying to ramp the Grand Canyon, I'd just say he was stupid. Knowing he was racing like that down a public road... Hey, I'm quite happy the idiot took himself out and not some innocent family, as was said before. All too often we hear about a drunk driver killing someone else and walking away from the accident. This time justice was served.

In my neck of the woods, a young father and his infant son were recently killed by a drunk 18 year old asshole. Much like Dunn, he chose to drive his two-ton lethal weapon at a high rate of speed while drunk. It wasn't an accident. It wasn't a mistake. It was a willfully negligent string of decisions by a selfish and stupid person. Thankfully Dunn didn't kill an innocent person like this guy did. Thankfully Dunn will no longer drive 100mph while drunk as well.

My purely uninformed theory is this outcome is the ONLY one that would result in him not drinking and driving again. Don't be naive and think this was an isolated incident and if he'd made it out alive, he'd never have done it again.

If the passenger's family sues Dunn's estate, which way do you think it is going to go?
I love bricks.

If you would look at my posts in the thread then you would see that I have not defended Ryan Dunn, he made a mistake and cost him his life and thats what Ive been saying this ENTIRE TIME.

And its a risk the passenger was taking by getting in the car, its not a technicality at all. Again, that person also made a mistake and cost him dearly, and i personally wish that both were alive right now.

I dont think either "got what the deserved" or that "justice was served" in this case, it was a big mistake on both parts and unfortunately they aren't around anymore to make up for it and turn it around like many get a chance to.

He must have been flying, he totally obliterated a 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 (a very, very fast car) and there was a 100 ft. skid mark before the car left the road. Upon impact the car disintegrated and then burst into flames. The driver was identified by his tattoos and I don't think they have yet identified the passenger.

He pulled the ultimate jackass in death. Way to go brosef.

Many drivers uphold the law, But Good people sometimes make bad decisions when alcohol is involved.

He made me laugh, I enjoyed his antics as part of the Jackass show.

agreed....my point was that a poster above made hte comment that anyone who drives drunk isn't innocent anymore....then went on to say that he never drinks (living in a glass house of sorts)

i agree that people shouldn't drive hammered and shouldn't drive hammered and hit speeds anywhere NEAR how he was driving

but I do go to the bar and catch a baseball game and drive home 2 miles to my house...

why?

a) because the area I live in can be dangerous to walk in at night, especially in that two miles
b) I can't watch my team from home
c) I'm 29 years old and understand the trouble/danger in overdoing it and making a mistake....so I don't get wasted (for the record anytime you do upwards of more than 1 shot with beers I think you run that risk)

Ultimately, I think people are taking polar stances on this to argue. Should you drink and drive? No, ideally you shouldn't. Can you be right around that .08 limit and make it home safely? Sure. There is obviously some middle ground but everyone is staking their position and holding it.

I, personally, think he deserved to off himself. IF the driving 120 was a byproduct solely of his drinking, it's insanely irresponsible. I, however, would say he deserved to be wormfood simply for going 120 in his little racecar. There's absolutely no excuse for that. Maybe the absolute position becomes more easily defended though if we say he deserved it based on his booze consumption rather than his simple overindulgence in something we all do to a much smaller degree.

To sum up my above rambling, he deserved to die in my opinion - that was a very realistic consequence for the decisions he made. For the booze, speeding, etc... it's just easier to argue and potentially "win" by taking a position that no sane person would truly challenge.

agreed on all points...I hate saying someone "deserves to die" but you sure as hell make it a lot easier by driving like that because ultimately you don't care about anyone else on the road....kinda like pulling a gun out in a crowd and having somebody take you out...you put a lot of others in danger for no reason and opened yourself up to the consequences

don't like the holier than thou approaches that some have taken in this thread though...painting with such a broad brush is naive

Police: 'Jackass' Star's Blood Alcohol More Than Twice the Legal Limit at Time of Fatal Crash


Read more: http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2011/06/22/police-jackass-stars-blood-alcohol-more-than-twice-legal-limit-in-fatal-crash/#ixzz1Q292QCMW

A toxicology report shows that "Jackass" star Ryan Dunn had a blood-alcohol content that was more than twice the legal limit for drivers in Pennsylvania when he and a passenger died in a fiery one-car crash this week.

The report says Dunn's blood-alcohol level was 0.196 at the time of the crash early Monday morning. The report was released Wednesday by West Goshen Township Police.

The legal limit for drivers in the state is .08.

Police say Dunn may have been going as fast as 140 mph when his Porsche veered off the roadway, went airborne and crashed into the woods in a Philadelphia suburb.

2 miles???? Take a cab! I am upper 30's with kids now and it has taken me a while to realize this myself, but take a damn cab anytime you are going out even for a few. Yeah, the $20 or whatever it is may seem like an inconvenience but its a hell of a lot cheaper than a DUI or god forbid an accident in which you hurt someone else or yourself.

Not sure about that. I think at a certain point the speed starts to amplify. For instance going from 60-80, you almost don't notice that 20 miles an hour. But I bet when you go from 120-140 that 20 mph seems like a lot lot more. Just an opinion. But I know when you go to hit a baseball you go in the 60's at the cages no problem. Most guys can make good contact, even when you dont play ball. Then when you go to the 80's less contact, the ones who aren't baseball players start to flail. Go into the 90's and most now strike out. So at some point the speed gets hard to react to.

Forget about the fact that he was part of "me-first" culture that ultimately glorifies everything that is dragging our society into the toilet.

So you work to better society and not to make money? Can I ask what you do for a living?

Making people laugh is a great contribution to society. Just because you don't get the humor, doesn't mean it is bad. I didn't care for them enough to watch the second or third movies, or the first a second time, but I know many that love them.

Obviously, this wasn't a Jackass stunt. But you have to wonder if getting away with some of the stupid stuff they did on that show doesn't make some people feel invulnerable to repercussions.

LOL

"I do stuff! Just don't ask what it is! Also, I know for sure that the guy I have never met didn't do any of this same stuff! I am better than him!!!!!!!"

That is the dumbest thing I have read in a while. That is saying something with guys like gaff and baja contributing to what I have been reading.

So, tell me when the jackass movies promoted drunk driving, speeding, or anything else illegal. I seemed to have missed that. Their form of comedy is also not new.

Are you saying the same thing when NASCAR drivers smash into walls and die? How about when evel knievel died? They were doing stupid **** for entertainment...

Being a douche is claiming that a comedy show is horrible because you don't find it funny. Being a douche is claiming that a VERY old form of comedy is somehow just now a huge problem for society. Your use of brosef shows that I am not the biggest douche in this conversation.

The hypocrite line doesn't even make sense. What am I being a hypocrite about? I'm not sure you know what that word means.

As for self-centered, of course I am. You would be jhns-centered if you ever seen or met me.

Extremely drunk driving at 140 mph = talking on your cell phone.

Wow, 140 is insanely fast. I live in Germany at the moment and get to drive on roads that are built for it and deal with people who do go that fast. I would say the fastest I ever got, again on a road that grips and banks correctly is 120, and that was in a car built for higher speeds. You have to be in absolute control going that fast, one mistake and your dead. This again is on roads that are built for it, I cant emphasize enough what a difference that makes. To go that fast in the states around any city is insanely stupid. Add alcohol to the mix, and the outcome is practically assured. That sounds more like suicide than an accident to combine those two actions.

It's not a comparison but someone saying 140 mph doesn't seem like a big deal because it's only 80 mph more then they have driven seemed funny. And the question, "have you ever driven a Porsche" to my comment it seemed almost suicidal to drive that fast drunk also was humorous.

Sort of debunks the one guys theory that 140 in a Porsche not that big a deal. That is some big time speed meant for perfect conditions, the driver not drunk, and a car and road meant for it. This guy had only one thing, the car built for it.

Its not like we are running up to the guys mom and dad and saying your kid was stupid i don't care he is dead. That would lame and cruel.

Ok. I'll spell this out so you understand.

I reality when you die like this you die a murderer because you kill the person traveling with you also. What a bummer, drive safe, don't drink and drive and lets all of us live to be old.

And then...

So drunk off his ass like everyone already knew, and driving 140 mph. That sounds more and more like he was depressed and wanted to die. Not sure even a professional race car driver can keep control that drunk, going that fast. Do any of you think you could? Fastest I have ever even taken a car was 110, 140? man that is flying.

So you admit to driving 110. I guess the speed limit was 115? But yeah, preach to everyone else about driving safe.

Not sure about that. I think at a certain point the speed starts to amplify. For instance going from 60-80, you almost don't notice that 20 miles an hour. But I bet when you go from 120-140 that 20 mph seems like a lot lot more. Just an opinion. But I know when you go to hit a baseball you go in the 60's at the cages no problem. Most guys can make good contact, even when you dont play ball. Then when you go to the 80's less contact, the ones who aren't baseball players start to flail. Go into the 90's and most now strike out. So at some point the speed gets hard to react
to.

140 MPH for the specific kind of car he was in feels roughly
like 90 MPH in a Honda Civic, for example. From a control
perspective. If someone wants to go 140+ MPH in the fast
lane of the autobahn, and still feel in control. The car he
was driving would be a good choice. Just to answer your
question.

Driving drunk at any speed is a bad idea. None of the above
info represents my opinion on the Thread topic. I'm a car guy,
and thought I'd share.

I'm in favor of banning cell phones on the road. I hate that a lot of my friends do it when I'm in the car with them. I've actually asked them to pull over and stop so I can get out and walk to where I need to go if we're driving somewhere, it's just ridiculous.

A woman rolled through a stop sign with a toddler in her front seat (who was leaning towards the dash, out of his seatbelt and she almost hit me going about 20 MPH the other day. I had to swerve quick onto the sidewalk to avoid being hit. She didn't even stop, she just kept going.

Several times a week stuff like this happens and it's just frightening. Women are way more guilty.

I've been thinking of creative ways to deal with this. Pulling a fake gun on them, scaring the **** out of them, I have no clue.

I actually just might let one of them hit me one day or just run into their car for the fun of it, get their insurance and have them ****ed for their lack of discipline.

I have a female friend that has wrecked like six cars in the past two years while texting or talking. Now she can't afford insurance and is f'd.

I agree, I hate people that drive while on the phone. Most every time I see a driver do something stupid, I see a phone in their hand.

I get road rage, so I deal with the situation you described by pulling in front of them and stopping. I almost hate driving because road rage is about the only time I am ever pissed off. People have no respect for others when they get in vehicles.

I see young kids (and a lot of other people) hammering away on their phones texting, while looking down and not at the road.

That has to be a lot more dangerous than talking on a cell phone, as you have to take your eyes of the road in order to text and read text messages.
