Report: Ryan Dunn VERY Drunk, Driving Up to 140 MPH at Time of Crash

by at . Comments

A toxicology report indicates that Jackass star Ryan Dunn was drunk when he crashed his Porsche on a Pennsylvania highway and died Monday morning.

Not only that, he was driving extremely fast, possibly up to 140 m.p.h.

Dunn, 34, died along with his friend Zachary Hartwell, 30, from West Chester, Pa. Both men suffered "blunt and thermal trauma" in the crash, which effectively turned Dunn's car into a fireball, according to the autopsy report.

Authorities say the toxicology results put Ryan Dunn's blood alcohol concentration at 0.196 percent. The Pennsylvania legal state limit is just 0.08.

Before the crash that took their lives, the two men had been in a bar in West Chester. Dunn had even Tweeted a photo of them drinking.

"The initial crash reconstruction investigation determined that Mr. Dunn's vehicle was traveling between 132-140 mph at the time of the collision," the West Goshen Police Chief, Michael Carroll, said in a statement.

It's all very tragic. It also reinforces Roger Ebert's point - however poorly timed and worded it may have been - about drunk driving (and speeding).

It sucks that he died AND killed his friend too. Statistically, that means that he probably drove drunk at least 50 times before that and repeatedly risked the lives of innocent people on the road. I feel bad for those whom are left behind by both of their deaths. RD made his bed, though. Sad. But true.

NO HEART is what it takes to kill a friend. In this case also no BRAIN !!!

Would all you who love those Jackasses so much be defending them if they had killed one of your family members. I hope the passengers family sues the pants off of Ryan Dunn and the bar they were drinking at. EVERYONE IN THIS SITUATION NEEDS A BIG LESSON. HOORAY for Ebert having the balls to say what he did , it was well deserved.BTW I would never protest a funeral that just hurts the people left behind picking up the pieces. I hope all the fans especially kids learn from this not to assimillate this latest stunt!!!

These guys have all acted like a bunch of spoiled and entitled man-brats since Jackass became popular. Fuck Ryan Dunn. Not one of you can say that when you saw a douchebag speeding in a Porche past you, you didn't think "that Fuckbag is going to kill someone", well, he did. No one should feel sorry for him. Its not the first time he drove drunk. He was busted for it 6 years ago. I'm sure that wasn't the only other incident either. Fuck him for putting anyone else who was on the road that night in danger too. If a minivan with kids in it was involved too, would you still defend him? I'm with Ebert. Fucking stupid idiot selfish ass shitbag.

Its sad that these 2 (dumbass) guys died. Im concerned that the friends he was with & the staff at the bar he was at thought it was ok for him to drive. Where the hell are the designated drivers?

It is sad and unfortunate, waste of two lives, a great car and yet another example of the really bad choice to drink and drive. Do you really want your life to have been an example of a bad decision? Let alone that the actions also took the life of a friend. Waste just a total waste
