Ryan Dunn PICTURED Before Fatal Crash

6/21/2011 2:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Roughly two hours before "Jackass" star Ryan Dunn crashed his Porsche and died Monday morning ... he posed for pics with fans in a Philly-area bar ... glassy-eyed and flushed. 

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 an unidentified passenger.


Officials later identified the passenger who was killed in the fatal crash as 30-year-old Zachary Hartwell ... a friend who had been hanging with Dunn at a Philly-area bar earlier in the night.


Cops say both Dunn and Hartwell (pictured above right) both died as a result of injuries sustained in the crash around 2:38 AM Monday morning.

Sources who were at the bar with the two men tell us Dunn had intended to drop Hartwell off at his home ... and then Dunn planned to hang out with another friend after that.

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.


Margera RIPS Ebert -- SHUT UP About Ryan Dunn

Bam Margera is FURIOUS with Roger Ebert -- telling the the movie critic to shut his "fat f**king mouth" over a tweet Ebert posted yesterday, criticizing Bam's friend and "Jackass" co-star Ryan Dunn for drinking and driving ... just hours after Dunn passed away.


After TMZ posted the story that Dunn was seen drinking at a Philly-area bar before his fatal crash, Ebert posted a tweet that read, "Friends don't let jackasses drink and drive."

After a day of silence, Bam finally went to his Twitter to BLAST Ebert late Monday night ... saying, "I just lost my best friend, I have been crying hysterical for a full day and piece of s**t roger ebert has the gall to put in his 2 cents about a jackass drunk driving and [he is] one, f**k you!"

Bam added, "Millions of people are crying right now, shut your fat f**king mouth!"

Roger Ebert later posted on his blog he "was probably too quick to tweet" about the car crash that killed Ryan Dunn yesterday ... explaining that his post was "not intended as cruel."

Holly Madison on Crystal Harris' Party: 'A New Low'

Crystal Harris spent what would have been her wedding day to Hugh Hefner by partying by the pool with Heidi Montag -- and Holly Madison isn't too happy about it!

"That's a new low!!" Madison wrote on her Twitter Saturday as photos surfaced of Hef's runaway bride reading her new Playboy by the Wet Republic pool. "That's disgusting and whoever booked her is tacky!"

When another Twitter user asked whether a reality TV crew would be following Harris, Madison added "trust me, NO ONE is interested in filming Crystal! She left Lifetime high and dry while filming a 2 hour special!"

Looks like Harris took notice, Tweeting "Hard times show your real friends..." to which Holly replied "No. They show HEF's real friends."

My daughter turned 16 last month and there was just no way we could afford to add her to our existing insurance policy. I started shopping around for new car insurance and found this site: ( ) I just put in my ZIP code and received four quotes instantly after filling out your form. By comparing rates we were actually able to include my daughter in our new policy and not pay anymore per month for car insurance than we were originally paying for just me and my wife!

Sad the dude killed himself and his friend. It would have been more tragic if this drunk driver took another innocent car with him.

Millions and Millions Of People Drink and Drive, It's No Secret, I Have a Ton of Friends who drink and drive, Im Not condoning it but i also haven't done anything to prevent it, Regardless if Dunn Was Intoxicated it dosen't mean he deserved to die, So What If he Was a So Called "Jackass"?, The Man's a Human being who was loved by many, So when people jump on a blog completely anonymous, and borderline celebrate the death of another human being who gave laughter to the masses, your completely sick and i know for damn sure that in your real life your family and friends would be horrified at such disgusting comments. Celebrate The Man for all of the times he made you smile (or Cringe), don't celebrate the fact that the man is no longer walking this earth. R.I.P.

3 beers and 3 shots over 4 hours? My Grandmother could do that and drive. And for a guy that probably does this a lot, he probably never was that buzzed. "Glassy eyed and flush"? Anyone that's ever taken a photo can tell you that's "red eye" from a flash. And as far as being flush, this is a fair skinned, ginger blond man who spends a lot of time outside and likely drives a convertible. God, you people need to give it up. It was a simple accident caused from high speed and a car that's not built for high impact. Stop trying to smear Dunn's memory.

c.b.HATER...You know really, shut your mouth if you don't have anything nice to say. You might not like any of these guys but theyr really going through a hard time and for you to have the audacity to post such a rude comment for what? Do you now feel good about yourself? Well I hope so, because millions of people are quite upset to see such a loss, if you don't care, don't waste your ******* time reading the article or even commenting on it. Your a pathetic loser.
