Details Emerge On Ryan Dunn’s Death

It wasn’t even 48 hours ago that beloved Jackass crew member Ryan Dunn was tragically killed in a car crash in West Chester, Pennsylvania. Not much has been known about the facts of what happened, but TMZ recently released the details, along with photos and video of Dunn the night of his death.

The crash, (which resulted in the car bursting into flames) which took place in Dunn’s Porsche 911 GT3, happened around 2:38 am Monday morning. That night, Dunn partied at Barnaby’s of America, and was pictured with fans. He looks like he’s having a great time, which unfortunately was cut short.

According to TMZ, Dunn drank at least three beers and three shots- all within a four-hour period.

The unknown passenger in Dunn’s car, who was also killed was identified as 30-year-old Iraq war veteran, newlywed and fellow Jackass stuntman Zachary Hartwell, a friend of Dunn’s who was also partying that night. The plan was to bring Hartwell home, and then Dunn was planning on hanging out with another friend of his.

The coroner stated that “blunt and thermal trauma” from the crash was the cause of both deaths:

The Coroner’s Office just released the autopsy results for both men — who, we’re told, were each dead by the time officials arrived at the scene.

Based on the autopsy results, the crash was so violent, it seems it was impossible to determine if the two died from the impact of the crash itself or from the fire that resulted.

Officials say the toxicology results for both men — which would help determine the role alcohol played in the crash — will be released in 4 to 6 weeks.

As more updates become available, we will keep you updated.
