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

Good points "Jealous of Kate" - also, answering my own question, the relatives of the man killed by the drunk driver, (Come on, we all know he was drunk) are likely to be very appreciative of TMZ for posting these pictures, likely to be identified as Exhibit A.

To Ryan's friends who are screaming "foul" nope. Direct your anger at your friend who killed himself and another.

To people saying that only 3 beers and 3 shots won't get you wasted.. First of all, we're going off the 3 beers and 3 shots from one of his friends who is denying that Ryan was drunk. So who knows how accurate that info is?

If he drank three shots of tequila, jager, 151 or something strong, then mixed w/beer - he was probably over the legal limit.

Who knows whether any drugs were in his system as well?

Another bar patron said he was blitz.

He had a previous DUI charge from 2005.

The skid marks show he was speeding at a high rate of speed - 100mph or more. Even if he wasn't totally blitz -- which I believe he WAS -- he still was acting in a reckless fashion.

Again, it is good that he did NOT kill someone else.. The passenger likely knew Ryan was in no condition to drive but took the chance.

It's still sad, but again, we're lucky that innocent bystanders did not get killed as well.

I'm guessing that the bar could be held liable for the crash if they served him enough booze to get him drunk.

Drunk as an idiot and thought it would be a great idea to drive home. We are all lucky he only killed himself and passenger who was stupid enough to get in a car with him. He lived like a jackass and died like one too.

Were all going to have to wait and see what the fall out over the death of his passenger is going to be first. it might weigh pretty heavy on the whole group and jackass organization. i could safely say right now that if he would have taken out an innocent family returning out of state from visiting grandma in the process of killing himself and a friend that this would have totally destroyed "jackass" as we know it. its bad enough with an innocent passenger so lets see what happens next.

Who keeps track of how many drinks a friend has when they're out with a group? That's just dumb.

But I think he must have been drunk. If you've ever driven a 911 you know how well they handle.

It's all well and good those of you branding him as a murderer for killing an innocent man...

But did it ever occur to you that his friend was most likely aware that that Dunn had been drinking and probably got into the car on his own accord? He would have known the risks of getting into a vehicle with an intoxicated driver, he put his own life at risk. They were clearly both irresponsible, regardless of who was driving.

I sure as hell wouldn't get into a car with someone under the influence.

I don't condone drinking under the influence, and yes, they could have hit someone else, but christ, have some respect for the families of these two men and stop with the petty slander.

For everyone saying "IF he was over the limit..." am I the only one who knows that you don't need to be over the limit to have alcohol affect your driving, decision-making skills and response time?

These are clearly pictures taken from a bad camera. He has redeye not glassy eyes! And hes also laughing in the last picture because the girls are tickling him, it looks obvious to me. God forbid he laugh,or else he must be so drunk. I love TMZ, but im REALLY disappointed in this so called "EXCLUSIVE". I do not think Ryan Dunn appears to look wasted in theses pictures at all.
