Ryan Dunn has died in a car crash early Monday morning, June 20. His car, 2007 Porsche 911 GT3, was found "off the road and in the woods" in West Goshen Township, Pennsylvania, police told TMZ. The "Jackass" actor and an unidentified passenger lost their lives around 3 A.M. "as a result of injuries sustained in the accident."

On late Sunday, just hours before the car crash, Dunn tweeted a photo of himself and a pal drinking what appears to be alcohol. However, it is still unclear whether alcohol played role in his death. Cops said "speed may have been a contributing factor" in the accident. The Chester County Coroner is currently conducting an autopsy on Dunn and the unidentified passenger.

Following the shocking news, many fellow celebrities have expressed their condolences. Johnny Knoxville who appeared with Dunn in three "Jackass" films tweeted, "Today I lost my brother, Ryan Dunn. My heart goes out to his family and his beloved Angie. RIP Ryan. I love you buddy."

His other co-star Steve-O seemingly lost his words, simply saying "I don't know what to say, except I love Ryan Dunn and I'm really going to miss him." Dave England added, "I love you Ryan. I'm gonna miss you bad."

Bam Margera was "devastated" upon learning the news, his parents said. Margera's mother, April, who was apparently close with Dunn, stated in an interview with MyFoxPhilly, "I can't believe it ... [Dunn] was part of our family ... He always used to call me on Mother's Day."

Rachael Leigh Cook, who was also saddened by Dunn's sudden passing, praised him as "an incredibly funny, kind, and generous person," before saying "My heart goes out to Angie & his family." Carey Hart, meanwhile, took to his Twitter to say, "RIP Ryan Dunn. You were an amazing guy and you were cut way to short. Enjoyed the times we had. My heart goes out to his family and friends."

Meanwhile, President of MTV Networks Music/Films Group, Van Toffler, stated, "We are devastated by the tragic loss of Ryan Dunn, a beloved member of the MTV family for more than a decade. He made us all laugh and had the tireless enthusiastic approach to life of your favorite middle school friend. Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with Ryan's family and friends. The Jackass brotherhood will never be the same."
