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.

I question everyday why I spend time on this website and today it became ever so clear that I won't be coming back here. You have crossed like every privacy barrier here by taking picture from a fatal crash and exploiting them all over your site. Shame on you TMZ.

This just shows that driving is a job by itself. Did he have a seat belt on? For some reason, people today feel totally safe while driving and doing nonsense.

TMZ I appreciate you showing us the photos. It gives closure. It's comforting to see where his soul left his body to join his loved ones for eternity. His body might be there but what made him who he was has left and is heaven bound.

May Dr. Frank Ryan's family and friends find comfort and privacy through their tragic loss and subsequent folly of TMZ's promotion of such a terrible end to this man's life. What a pathetic level you've reached, TMZ.
