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.
