Bam Margera - Bam Margera's Mother Says Ryan Dunn Was 'Like A Son'

Bam Margera's mother has spoken out about the tragic death of Jackass star Ryan Dunn, who was killed in a car-crash in Pennsylvania this morning (20th June 2011). April Margera was the first to confirm Dunn's passing and also revealed the identity of the second person to die in the crash.
Speaking to Fox 29 News, Margera said Dunn was like "a son" to her and called her every Mother's Day. The news station is withholding the name of the second fatality until police confirm the identification. April said she didn't know who was driving the vehicle and that there may have been a third occupant. Dunn, who starred in all five Jackass movies, died in the automobile crash at around 2.38am. On arrival at the scene, authorities found a 2007 Porsche 911 "off the road and in the woods that was fully engulfed in flames". According to police, Dunn was the registered owner of the vehicle and a statement noted, "speed may have been a contributing factor to the accident". The crash occurred just hours after Dunn had posted a Twitter image of himself drinking with two friends. Following news of his passing, Mtv issued a statement paying tribute to the daredevil, saying, "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".
The 34-year-old had also starred on Bam Margera's reality series 'Viva La Bam', as well as on 'Homewrecker' and 'Proving Ground'.
