Dunn and his passenger, Jackass production assistant Zachary Hartwell, were killed Monday morning. According to West Goshen police, Dunn was driving at least 130 miles an hour and his blood alcohol level was above the legal limit when he lost control of his Porsche, smashed into a tree and the car burst into flames.

Margera broke down while visiting the crash site earlier this week.

"I've never lost anybody I care about; he's my best friend," Margera told Philadelphia's Fox affiliate through tears.

"He's gonna eat it one of these times [in a car accident]," he said on DVD commentary for season 5 of Jackass.
