June 20, 2011, By Christian Davis

G4’s brand new show, Proving Ground, already has to look for a new co-star. Ryan Dunn, known for his antics in MTV’s Jackass, has died in a car crass in Philadelphia.

The 34 year old was driving his 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 when he apparently loss control of the vehicle, and drove into the woods. According the the police report, the vehicle was completely engulfed in flames when the authorities arrived.

There’s no word on what the cause of the unfortunate event could be, though, the last pictured that Dunn posted on his Twitter account was of him and friends drinking. Hopefully it wasn’t a DUI.

Both Dunn and the unannounced passenger were dead at the scene. Co-host to Dunn on Proving Ground, Jessica Chobot,  had this to say via Twitter:

“Thank you for your condolences. Ryan was a wonderful friend, co-host and a brilliant man. My heart hurts for his family & friends and I will miss him greatly.”
