Photos of Dr. Frank Ryan's Fatal Crash

8/18/2010 2:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained photographs of the Jeep crash on Monday that killed famed celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Frank Ryan.

The photographer tells TMZ he drove past the accident almost immediately after the crash. "There was still dust in the air," he said.  The photog tells us he pulled over, scaled down the cliff with other people and approached the Jeep.

The photog says Dr. Ryan was bleeding badly from two head lacerations but was still moving while trapped inside the vehicle. By the time lifeguards pulled Dr. Ryan out of the Jeep, however, there were no signs of life. "He was non-responsive and not breathing," the photog says.

The photographer helped bring the spine board down the hill and then helped lift Dr. Ryan onto it, to no avail.

And the photog says, it appeared the lacerations were the result of the Jeep having no real cover on the top ... causing Dr. Ryan to strike the rocks on the way down.

No roll bars? You'd think a Dr. would have thought that one through.

All bedbugs mate by traumatic insemination.[1][19] Because the female has no genital opening, the male pierces her abdomen with his hypodermic genitalia and ejaculates into the body cavity. Especially desperate males sometimes mistake other males for females and fatally wound the latter in the abdomen.[20]

The "bedbug alarm pheromone" consists of (E)-2-octenal and (E)-2-hexenal. It is released when a bedbug is disturbed, as during an attack by a predator. A 2009 study demonstrated that the alarm pheromone is also released by male bedbugs to repel other males who attempt to mate with them.[21]

C. lectularius and C. hemipterus will mate with each other given the opportunity, but the eggs then produced are usually sterile. In a 1988 study, 1 egg out of 479 was fertile and resulted in a hybrid, C. hemipterus × lectularius.[22][23]

So did the photographer take the pictures for his scrapbook or was he just thinking how he could make a buck of this tragedy?

He was texting to his Twitter account while driving along a cliff. What an A-hole. Thank goodness his dog survived!

Jeeping while texting sounds like going for a Darwin Award. Where is Heidi going to get her next round of improvements? She needs the balance, her ass is getting bigger every month.

Here is a prime example of why you shouldn't be texting when you're driving. As a doctor he should have known better. What a waste.

TMZ - why would you post this?? Not only is he NOT a celebrity, but he has a family. I read your site every day, but this time you went over the line.

Very poor judgment on TMZ's part for posting pictures of fatal car accident. You should be ashamed Harvey.
