Ryan Dunn -- Autopsy Underway

6/20/2011 3:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned the Chester County Coroner is currently conducting an autopsy on Ryan Dunn ... to determine, among other things, if alcohol played a role in the "Jackass" star's death.

Ryan Dunn Cause of Death
In addition, we're told the coroner is performing an autopsy on Ryan's unidentified passenger -- who was also killed in the fatal car crash this morning.

As we previously reported, friends claim Ryan had upwards of six drinks before getting behind the wheel ... and driving off a Pennsylvania highway.

So far, no word on when toxicology results will be released.

kelli shut up ! had he killed a member of your family you would NOT be defending and some of us got common sense to know he could´ve killed more innocent people and we´re glad he didnt.We get upset when a regular joe kills others while under the influence and we judge them ,want them sentenced ,off the street and in jail so just bcs this was a celebrity doesnt make it right or excusable ,he is just as responsible and despicable for an act like this just as any other civilian who does just that.Too bad for the pain he caused his family but as for him he did it to himself and someone else,,,plain irresponsable and thought he was above the law.HE WILL NOT BE MISSED bcs fortunately for decent people its just another drunk driver off the road!.

110 mph over that railing into the trees below and bursting into flames with or without seat belts is not a ride i would want to take.

Even with seat belts you can be torn in half at those speeds.

Today is a day of sadness, Why? because someone we know has passed away, yes R.I.P to the Porsche 911 car and R.I.P goes out to all of the innocent Trees & wildlife that were possibly destroyed by the car being on fire, hundreds if not thousands of innocent ants, worms and other beautiful wildlife were possibly destroyed by this.

Smokey the bear was right! Only you can prevent forest fires, and by that he meant, don't drink and drive at 100 miles per hour while drunk, hit trees set them on fire and kill yourself and another.

Poor Porsche, Trees, and wildlife never had a chance.

Sure what i have said will make you TMZ viewers mad, i really don't care, sit and think about it for a second, let it sink in, more than 2 lives were taken today, Trees will die, ants will die, but guess what? Trees can and will regrow , and ants will repopulate, Ryan on the other hand.... will be worm food, or what's left of him, MMMMMMMMM Charred Meat!!

Call me a heartless fool all you want, i have no sympathy for this piece of trash who endangered the lives of innocent people while driving drunk at 100 mph, hopefully this will wake up the rest of the Jackass crew and they will stop.

Yeah so he made all of us laugh, big deal, if he slammed into your kids or parents at 100mph and killed them would you still say " oh RIP Ryan you'll be missed" no you wouldn't, Honestly i wish that they would charge all drunk drivers with attempted murder if they decide to get behind the wheel and drive drunk, even if they don't hit anybody.

We have taxi cabs for a reason, the man was 34 , knew better, should have known better anyways, instead he's now on a slab in the coroner's office probably burnt to a crisp along with the passenger. Good Riddance to another drunk driver who will be forgotten by next week.

@ devon: RedDead as so many others decided to ride their "moral high horse" and charge against anyone who says anything against this drunk driver who wasn't responsible enough to care for the life of his passenger friend, not to mention his own life.

Virtues always tend to come afloat when someone dies.

Action News is told the passenger was a castmember of the show "Jackass" that also starred Dunn.

Jack Ass.

This was not a TV, movie, controlled environment, staged, produced, take 10 and so on. This was hard core true 'Reality'. He's dead so is the passenger.

He was in the bar drinking beer and doing shooters. That's reality.

Honestly... Alot of people keep saying this is too soon to start reacting about drunk driving.. well clearly by this untimley death it is far to late!! I'm not happy the guy died, I feel bad for his friens and family, but his death was a result of his own negligence and iresponsibility,also causing someone else's death...

ja- doesn't matter, that's just my bet. And, yes, I am from the United States- way to go out on a limb there, buddy!

What I don't understand is 8......seriously count them yourself "8" seperate stories on this guy.

It's not the pope or queen that died I checked......

How much talent (or lack of brains) does it take to stick a toy car up your poop shoot? At the very least 6 drinks and then doing 100mph? Did you see the skid marks he left and no not from the toy car?

What would you people be saying if he wiped out an entire family instead o*****uardrail? yeah poor guy "Bro Me".
