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.

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.

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

Folks, whether drunk or 100% sober, driving 130 mph on dark rural Pennsylvania roads in the dead of night is a tragedy waiting to happen. The cops have confirmed that's about how fast he was going when he hit the guard rail. Think about that for a second. This isn't a case of "s@$t happens", this is a case of personal responsibility. I've been a long time fan of cky/jackass and it's certainly sad that someone who made so many people laugh isn't with us anymore. But he chose to drive that fast and it cost him.

I have to respectfully disagree with the people on here that are claiming that he may not have been drunk. The ability to metabolize alcohol is not some highly individual and mysterious unknown that some of you are claiming it to be. Your blood alcohol levels is mostly a function of your weight and gender. Yes some people handle the effects of alcohol better than others, but your blood alcohol level is what it is. If he drank as much as they say he drank he was clearly under the influence. And if you need more proof, consider the fact that he was going 130 mph at the time of the crash. I think that proves his judgment was severely impaired.

Let's say...nothing was lost, because he was nothing anyway.

I am saddened by what transpired with Ryan Dunn. He lived like he died. I find it strange that people are celebrating his life like he was John Lennon. Not because he wasn't awesome but where was the uproar with him on his show on G4? The rating weren't good but all the 'fans' are now coming out of the woodwork. The show was really funny and I'm saddened it won't be on anymore. I guarantee that most of the people commenting never saw his show. He was more than a jackass, people. Very talented and smart individual and I loved him in Hangover

Quotes:

"starts drinking around 1am"

"3 beers and 3 shots in 4-hours"

"leaves at 2:38am"


Who's the moron that can't tell time, both the original story writer and the idiots in the commentary?

That would be 3 beers and 3 shots in an hour and a half.

That's more than enough to get someone drunk.

Lots of stupid commenters today, someone said "my friend can drink 6 beers in 30 minutes and still be sober". oh Really? that means Ryan Dunn's accident didnt teach you anything!!!!!! you should be sayin there's no way in hell I'll ever drink and drive again (we all do at some point in our lives!). He might not have been WASTED BUT if he was drinking 2, 3 hours prior to accident, then he had NO BUSINESS DRIVING A CAR AT 130MPH!!!! PERIOD!!!!!

Regardeless, it is always a sad tragedy when lives are lost this way. RIP Ryan Dunn.

Why is everybody defending this guy? Wait for an autopsy? HE WAS PHOTOGRAPHED DRINKING IN A BAR, PEOPLE. Most people that drive drunk (even tipsy) do it all the time. EVERY SINGLE TIME they are too careless to think about other people's well being. Thinking this was his first time, and a mistake are naive beyond belief. If you could care less about the people around you, then the world is better off without you. PERIOD. As for the guy riding with him. He should've known better.

It really doesn't matter how much he drank or didn't drink, it matters that a human life is lost and the families and friends are being terribly disrespected here. I would never defend drinking and driving but it is important to defend common decency.Put yourself in the families shoes and hope you never have to walk a mile in them.

Speaking The Truth    

To the poster who said her friend could drink 6 drinks in 30 minutes and still be sober, let's clarify things a bit.

Alcohol enters the bloodstream. There is no way around that. Your friend may "APPEAR" sober, but in fact, is not in full possession of his or her faculties. In other words, one can be legally drunk and not appear to be so.

Ignorance. Sheer ignorance.

No one is sober if you drink like that.. U might be able speak and walk but are not sober.. Buzz driving is drunk driving... U are impaired! and by the way if you let your friend drive after 6 beers in 30 minutes you are not a close friend.

Out of all 5 pictures of Ryan you have posted...none of them show him with a drink in his hand, and he doesn't look drunk at all. He just looks like he's having a good time.

It doesn't matter how much you have been drinking; you should not be operating any type of vehicle. If he wasn't drunk or buzzed or whatever, I feel bad for them. However if he was, I do not. What if he had crashed into someone? Why do you people think that drinking and driving is great?
