Bam Margera Mourns Loss Of Friend Ryan Dunn
Losing a friend is always hard, and ‘Jackass’ star Bam Margera lost his very best friend when Ryan Dunn died in a violent car accident last week.
“It was pretty much the worst news I’ve ever heard in my life,” Margera told E! Online while sitting next his wife, Melissa “Missy” Rothstein.
“He was my best f–king friend in the world. It’s been five days now and I can’t stop crying man,” a visibly upset Margera said. “I just don’t think it should’ve been him.”
Though news of Dunn’s death came as a shock — Margera woke up to the news in Arizona — the ‘Jackass’ star’s reckless driving didn’t come as a surprise.
“He flipped me in a car eight times at the same exact spot in 1996,” Margera said. “Thank God I had my seat belt on, because [‘Jackass’ star] Chris Raab put one on me, but my brother didn’t have one on. He flew 40 feet. Thank God he’s alive. But like, Dunn was always a maniac at driving.”
During the interview, Margera read a series of text messages the friends exchanged, with the last one reading, “Stopping for a beer, be there when I can.”
“He should have just f**king turned around,” Margera said. “But he skidded out.”
Dunn’s Porsche reportedly swerved off the road, hit a guardrail and careened into the woods where it burst into flames. Both Dunn and his passenger, Zachary Hartwell, were killed.
According to the L.A. Times, the coroner’s report confirms that blunt force trauma and thermal trauma were the official causes of death in the accident.
After an accident reconstruction, Police Chief Michael Carroll told RadarOnline.com that the Porsche 911 was going “about 130 mph” when the accident happened in a reported 55-mph zone. Dunn was reportedly drinking at a local bar before the accident occurred.
