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

Wow. TMZ sure is good at jumping to conclusions. Why don't you wait for the toxicology results. Maybe it's hot in the bar, so his face is red and shiney. I don't see how his eyes look glassy... I see a cheap camera, probably phone camera, and bad lighting giving the photo some redeye. And you guys wonder why you don't get any respect... you're a gossip rag... extra! extra!... TMZ makes up facts!... Jumps to conclusions!... Smears people's names!...oh yeah... that's not news...

I am surprised TMZ hasn't lapped up the info all over the internet that Ryan Dunn had a 2005 DUI charge. Radar online seems to be getting scoops quicker than TMZ.

The assistant DA in Chester County confirmed that Dunn had a DUI charge in 2005, but was able to get his record clean after a certain amount of time, because he was a first time offender.

None of you obviously lost anyone to a drunk driver. You don't have to be "wasted" to be impaired. I am saddened that this happened to these people but wasted or not drinking and driving is drinking and driving and bad things happen. The guy who killed my friend said he didn't have very much either. My thoughts go out to all involved.

An accident is something which could not have been easily prevented.

As much as Dunn and the guys drink, with his tolerance level, there's no way 3 shots and 3 beers over the course of 4 hours made him drunk. Maybe if he shotgunned it all before driving but spread out, no freaking way. I'm not convinced he wasn't possibly racing someone and either got clipped or cut off, that or he was speeding and something jumped out in front of him.

Oh... three beers in FOUR hours. Three watery American beers: that's a lot of diluted alcohol.

@Dustin

Or the road he was driving on was really bad. I'd be willing to bet that the sh*tty road combined with the speed he was going was the real cause of the accident.

STOP GLORIFYING THIS PERSON WITH CONTINUED COVERAGE!!!! How much coverage did you give Clarence Clemmons? 1 maybe 2 posts? We lost a true gem with C.C. yet you insist on doing story after story on this murderer! Where is your common sense?!?! Hey, guess what? HE WAS DRINKING BEFORE THE CRASH!!!! No need to report on the autopsy either. MOVE ON!

Prayers to the family and I do wonder who's going to be first to sue the bar that kept serving a drunk...and then let him walk out with keys in hand? Glad I don't have friends like this.

6th page, don't know who will get to read it BUT-google and read other stories. OKAY, if you look, different stories, different amounts of alcohol, diff. size glasses. Yeah, he was supposed to be there 4 hours and most of you are div. the drinks by 4 hours, but what if he did the shots in the last hour?????? The photos, where a few were yelling at TMZ for redeye-TMZ WAS NOT IN PHILLY!!! Dunn himself photo'd himself and sent them out and I am guessing others in the bar did the same. The Police can guess he speeding because the PORSCHE went over an embankment AND BURST INTO FLAMES! Most cars don't BURST INTO FLAMES in an accident, only in movies.(probably skid marks too) and yes, he was dead on impact, so tox. reports will have to tell. Yes, the prod. ass't got into the car and SHOULD HAVE REFUSED if he appeared drunk but, we weren't there. I do not blame Mr. Ebert, I am disabled after being hit by someone who might have been drunk (accident had coverups). People RARELY stop those who have drunk too much and sometimes, they do not look drunk (like the poster who said their friend could drink 6,8 beers in an hour and not be drunk, maybe not appear drunk but what is their BA). This man is dead, sad, but another innocent person is dead. And luckily with the HIGH SPEED HE WAS MOST LIKELY DRIVING, and possibly under the influence of alcohol, he could have killed others. HE WAS 34, not just o****e, driving too fast, and out drinking to closing time. Jackass movies-men who aren't men, immature who can't grow up?
