We all know the story of Ryan Dunn’s untimely death when he rocketed his Porsche off the road after filling his tank with the nectar of the gods, killing himself and his passenger. In an emotional inteview, Bam Margera talked to E! Online about the death of his bff and said that it wasn’t the first time Ryan had flirted with the reaper on that same stretch of road. Damn.
Bam said “He flipped me in a car eight times at the same exact spot in 1996. Thank God I had my seat belt on, because Chris Raab put one on me, but my brother didn’t have one on. He flew 40 feet. Thank God he’s alive. But like, Dunn was always a maniac at driving.”
Later in the interview, Bam read a text, the last words he ever heard from his friend. “Stopping for a beer, be there when I can.”
You know, I can’t even snark on this shit. It’s sad, it’s wasteful, and it was so avoidable. Dude rolled his car eight fucking times and almost killed his friends in the same spot he was doing 140 mph in 15 years later. We all know some crazy ass who always seems to skirt the inevitable, but eventually shit’s gonna go down. Just, damn.
