Ryan Dunn was very drunk the night he crashed his high performance car and killed himself and a friend of his in the process.
The toxiclogy results from yesterday’s autopsy on the “Jackass” star Ryan Dunn have been made available much earlier than was expected. And they make shocking reading.
Dunn’s blood alcohol level was almost two and a half times the legal limit when he crashed his car in the early hours of Monday morning (June 20).
The West Goshen Police Chief Michael Carroll released the details of the toxicology report. He revealed that Dunn’s blood alcohol level was .196. That is more than twice the legal limit which is .08 in Pennsylvania where the tragedy occurred.
Carroll conformed that “No other substances were found in his blood other than the alcohol.” So illegal drugs were not a factor in the deaths of the two young men, just an awful lot of alcohol.
The autopsy report also confirmed that the “Jackass” star and his friend, Iraq war vet Zachary Hartwell, were traveling at between 132 and 140 miles per hour in Dunn’s powerful Porsche 911 when they careered off the road into trees and the car burst into flames.
Both men were killed pretty much instantaneously but it will probably never been known whether they were killed by the initial impact of the crash or the flames which then ripped through the vehicle.
The Chester County, PA coroner said that Dunn and Hartwell died of “blunt force and thermal trauma.”
Ryan Dunn, who appeared in all three of the “Jackass” movies, Tweeted a photo of himself, Hartwell and another man at a bar in the Philadelphia area just hours before the fatal crash.
