The 34-year-old stuntman was killed in a Porsche alongside another person in the early hours of Monday morning near his home in Pennsylvania.
It is believed Dunn was at the wheel when the sports car flew over a guardrail and smashed into a tree before bursting into flames.
He was later identified by his tattoos, although his passenger’s identity is yet to be confirmed.
Just hours earlier Dunn had posted a picture of himself on Twitter drinking with two friends on Sunday night.
He was best known for his gut-wrenching stunts on hit MTV show Jackass alongside Johnny Knoxville.
MTV confirmed the daredevil’s death in a statement.
It said: ”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.”
