Bam Margera, the reality television star best known for his role on 'Jackass', says he had a premonition of Ryan Dunn's fatal car-crash before he received the bad news. Bam Margera's best friend was killed after his Porsche 911 careered off the highway and into woodland in Pennsylvania on Monday (9th June 2011).
Margera, who broke down while visiting the scene of the crash, told news station Wtxf, "At 12:30 (local time), I just started punching out the windows of the rental van and ripping out the speakers, and I don't even know why. I wasn't mad at anything or anybody. If it was 12:30 there (in Arizona), that means it was exactly when he crashed". Dunn and his passenger Zachary Hartwell both died in the accident in West Goshen, about 35 miles outside of Philadelphia. Speaking at the crash scene, Margera said, "I've never lost anybody that I care about. He's my best friend", adding, "He was the happiest person ever, the smartest person, with so much talent. He had so many things going for him. It's just not right, it's not right". West Goshen Township police officers set up traffic cones next to where Dunn's car crashed along Route 322. Toxicology test results seeking to determine whether the Jackass star was drink-driving will be released in 4-6 weeks.
Bam Margera blasted Roger Ebert on Twitter yesterday, after the movie critic had suggested Dunn was drunk at the wheel.
