Coroner: Ryan Dunn Died Violent Death

6/21/2011 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Jackass" star Ryan Dunn and his passenger each died as result of both blunt force trauma AND the fire that consumed Dunn's Porsche during the crash Monday morning ... this according to the Chester County Coroner.

Ryan Dunn Cause of Death

The Coroner's Office just released the autopsy results for both men -- who, we're told, were each dead by the time officials arrived at the scene.

Based on the autopsy results, the crash was so violent, it seems it was impossible to determine if the two died from the impact of the crash itself or from the fire that resulted.

Officials say the toxicology results for both men -- which would help determine the role alcohol played in the crash -- will be released in 4 to 6 weeks.

TMZ previously reported, officials believe Dunn's car veered off the highway and crashed in a wooded area Monday morning ... before exploding in flames. Investigators believe speed may have been a factor in the crash.

I wouldn't blame the bartender all that much. If you have ever done shots you know a majority of the time they don't actually kick in for awhile. He could of been drinking some beer and right before he left hammered some shots. The shots might of not kicked in until part of the way through his drive home. You also have to think that Dunn might not of been the one going up to the bar to get the drinks each time. We do not know everything that went on that night except for one man was drinking and became drunk at some point. He got into a car with someone else who was drunk and made the decision to ride along. They got in an accident after getting the speed of the car up over 130MPH and then there was the accident.

BLAMING THE BARTENDER? THIS JACKASS WAS NOT 6-YEARS OLD. HE MADE HIS LIVING BEING A JACKASS AND IT IS FITTING HE DIED A JACKASS. I am glad that his excess and stupidity did not cause death or damage to anyone wise enough to NOT behave like a jackass. Speeding Porsche, late night drinking binge, juvenile behavior=you asked for it, buddy.
Sorry-no sympathy her. His self-centered and thoughtless act could have cost someone else.

Everyone is missing the big picture here - yes we know Ryan was an extreme guy, but does that make him any less of a person?

You all seem to forget that when he was doing the extreme things he did it for people like you and I - to entertain us.

Quit judging, you have no right to call his mistakes until yours are shown to all and forgiven. Get off your high horse and get some compassion.

Never drink and Drive people, or if you drink, call a cab and go home, drinking and driving, you're playing with death and sooner or later, it will happen.
He should have known better and 100mph on such a small road is suicide, I hope people learn a lesson from this, don't drink and drive otherwise sooner or later, this will happen and you pay with it with your life or end up killing someone else.
Seriously, the laws should also be made stricter on drinking and driving before more people end up dead. This is a tragedy that could have been avoided but yeah, Ryan thought he knew better and sadly, he was human like the rest of us and ended up dying in such a stupid way.
Even his friends warned him about his drinking habits and he didn't listen, this accident is the consequence.

What a shame.

actually, before you place blame for his death on the bartender, it might be worth while to actually do a little research. all witnesses accounts state that the establishment only served dunn 2-3 beers, and that the other alcoholic beverages were bought for him by fans who delivered the shots to him as a kind of "hey take a shot with me dude" type thing. its nice to know how easily all of you blamed an innocent person for a mans death without even taking the simple effort to type in a few words on google search. try pulling your heads out of your a--es long enough to take a deep breath and think before you accuse someone of something that could equate to manslaughter.
