The pics show Ryan and his friends drinking at around 1 AM at a bar called Barnaby's of America in West Chester.

After downing at least 3 beers and 3 shots in 4-hours ...Ryan hit the road in his Porsche 911 GT3.

At around 2:38 AM, Ryan crashed -- killing himself and his passenger, Zach Hartwell.

One of my closets female friends can drink 6 beers in 30 mins and still be sober. Each persons alcohol tolerance is different. You don't know that he was wasted. Wait on the coroner's report before you start blasting people. Some of the comments on here are just mean and spiteful, maybe one day someone you love will die in an accident and then you won't be so quick to judge.

Ryan didn't look drunk in those pictures. Just like he was having a good time.

What a bunch of tossers some of you people are.I'm pretty sure Ryan didn't get into his car and say to himself "right i'm gonna die today and take a mate with me.He may or may not of made an error of judgement no-one is sure of that yet.People make mistakes and i'm pretty sure none of you are perfect.2 young lives were lost on monday and that in itself is a tragedy.To all you haters and sickos out there fnck off and find something else to hate like yourselves which is probably true seen as though you have no compassin for these dudes. RIP Ryan and friend you will both be sorely missed.Life cut too short.xoxo

Hoopee Hoopee

He looks 100% Totally wasted. There is no way he should have driven a car. Pride is a sin when you let it keep you from making the right choices in life. Sorry to see you go Ryan, but you did this to yourself. No one else to blame.

MightyMad MightyMad

There's no accident here. It sure is a tragedy, but, when you drink and drive, you shouldn't be able to crash your car and call it an ccident. You'll be miss, Dunn... but, man, what a stupid way to die.

Osiris Reborn Osiris Reborn

If it turns out he wasn't over the limit, a lot of you are going to look like fools. If it turns out he was, a lot of you are going to look like fools. Patience.. children.. the toxicology report will be up for grabs before ya know it..

TMZ what type of camera was used to take the pictures? Is it the poor quality camera causing the redeye? He is laughing in the main picture and it is possible to laugh so hard you cry, that might be the cause for the glassy-eyed appearance?

The toxicology will tell. People saying he is or isn't drunk are ridiculous. the tests will tell

at the end of the day he was drinking and ended up dead and killing his friend. he had enough money to take a taxi so I find it very hard to feel anything but anger towards him. what will it take for people to say no to drinking and driving, or find another way home.

I have never in my life seen so many negative and rude people. You all sound like animals. We are all human beeings and deserve condolance and respect when we die. It doesn't matter how someone dies; we all deserve love. People need to grow up and think twice. It may be you! How would you feel knowing that your mother, father, and family and friends are raeding all this negative stuff about you. That would make the mourning so much harder. PLEASE say your prayers and beg god to forgive you for your unkind words.

RIP to EVERYONE! No matter what the case/cause is. xoxo <3

Reportedly drunk driving at 130 MPH. He lived like a jackass and he died like a jackass. Roger Ebert didn't kill him. He just told it like it was.

I don't give a rats behind who he is. When you drink, you don't get behind a wheel of a car. There are so many other alternatives for rides home. He also killed someone else. I hope the families of these two go after everything the bar owns for allowing them to drive drunk. Get your head out of the sand and stop this nonsense.

Right lets not beat around the bush nobody is being cruel or nasty or any fslash thing else, yes lots of people have lost loved ones and yes lots of people, disagree or agree with all comments posted so far!
But the truth of the matter is regardless of whether everybody's tolerance is different or not to alcohol and some can handle it better than others, the Idiot was driving too quick and against the legal limit.
So before we all jump on a band wagon facts are facts and before you comment think if someone killed your dearest and nearest doing same thing , would you be so forgiving?!! ANSWER IS NO
On a lighter note RIP really missed

many years ago, a friend of mine and his ENTIRE family (wife and 2 little girls) were killed in a head on collision traffic incident (not accident). the culprit was a 4x4 truck on a 2 lane state route. the driver on the opposite lane was heavily drunk (tested 0.08) and he veered off into my friend's lane (he did not realize this until after the collision). as the sheriff arrived, the driver of truck insisted that he was not drunk! the guy was later sentenced to 15 yrs for vehicular manslaughter. 15 yrs for four bodies, that's less than 4 yrs per dead. guys, we NEED TO go very hard and harsh on these drunk drivers. our culture is too promiscuous to drunk drivers.

For everyone saying "wait until someone in your family has died and then we'll see if your so judgmental." I've actually had someone get drunk and behind the wheel and ended up killing themselves. Truly the ones suffering is his family and closest friends. It's a shame that he had a passenger with him. He shall be remembered as a MURDERER, and he dug his grave, now he can lay in it. No pun intended ;-) If he would of hit another car and it was your family, you wouldn't be feeling so sorry for him would you?

have you all not looked through the other four pictures? obviously this photo has been presented to the world because he looks disoriented in it - he is being tickled by these girls. in the next four pictures, he looks absolutley presentable. i do not doubt that ryan dunn was maybe a bit tipsy, and poor judgement was a huge factor in this accident, but it is completely beyond me how so many people can judge, and say such negative and hurtful things. "what if he hit your child?" that is obviously not the case. the passenger made a choice to get in the vehicle with ryan, knowing full well he had been drinking that night - he was of course innocent, but he made a choice, as well as ryan.
these are two lives that were taken far too soon. the world is mourning. why don't those of you who are so insensitive to judge keep your thoughts to yourself, and let friends, family, and fans, mourne.
rest in peace ryan & zach.

Whether or not he was over the limit we won't know for a couple of weeks. But whether he was or not he was still driving his car at 130 mph when he crashed.

So sad to see 2 lives taken this way. Here in Australia we lose so many people by the fact that they think they're OK to drive and tragically it turns out they were wrong. ANY alcohol in your system and driving a car can have a devastating impact. Rest in peace, fellas.

I think that the Jackass stars must believe that they are invincible, that what happens to normal people don't happen to them. How many times in school were we told to not drink and drive? Only an ignorant person would do so. I'm not going to make excuses for him, and I think what Ebert said is perfectly fine. Don't drink and drive. It's illegal. Dúh. YOU CAN KILL SOMEONE!!!

I do know someone who did drink and drive and DID kill an innocent man in another vehicle. The man who died was a father of two, his youngest was only a few weeks old. They will never know their father because someone I knew chose to drink and drive because he felt that he could. The drunk driver was also a father, and now his kids will get to see their father through jail bars for the next 10 yrs. It's digusting, and awful. The drunk driver's father and brother still drink and drive because they feel all right. Absolutely disgusting in my mind.

People who drink and drive are STUPID.

And to the person who said some girl they know can down 6 beers in 30 mins and be sober, well I BET that they wouldn't pass a breath test done by police. ;)

call me crazy, but it's a little hard to call one "glassy-eyed" in a phone picture that has been blown up and has red-eye, and hard to call one "flushed" in reference to alcohol when it's the middle of june without assuming it could have been heat and warm in there.

yes, drinking and driving is bad. no one's trying to dispute that. but no one knows how much he really had to drink. and alcohol tolerance IS DIFFERENT for everyone. i'm 23, petite, rarely drink, and can't drink much more than one good beer or i fall asleep though all of my friends, bigger or smaller, can out drink me b/c they drink more often than i. no one will know if he was truly drun*****il the toxicology results come back in a month!

rest in peace, ryan.
