Emotions were high while Bam Margera visited the scene of the crash that killed his best friend and Jackass co-star, Ryan Dunn. Nearly at a loss for words, Margera expressed his sympathy.

“I’ve never lost anybody that I care about; he’s my best friend,” Margera said.

Margera was in Arizona at the time of the accident. According to The New York Post, Margera said he anticipated that an accident would occur.

"At 12:30 [local time], I just started punching out the windows of the rental van and ripping out the speakers, and I don't even know why," he told WTXF. "I wasn't mad at anything or anybody. If it was 12:30 there [in Arizona], that means it was exactly when he crashed.”

Margera’s parents eventually broke the unfortunate news.

An accident reconstruction shows that Dunn may have been driving as fast as 130 mph. Alcohol is also believed to have played a role in the night’s events, but the full biopsy will not be revealed for another six weeks.
