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.

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!

0621_welcome_pool_LAUNCH
"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."

I do have to agree with Kayla...sounds like you people are jealous the fact that he made millions putting his body in harms way to make people laugh and you have to go back to your boring life to a low paying job like the rest of us. So he made a mistake in his judgements and now he is paying for it. You people make mistakes daily. Leave Bam and the Jackass crew alone. Dunn is their family and is part of mine through all their movies...what if you were in the same situation as Bam do we start critizing you and your family for their choice. RIP Dunn WE as a "JACKASS" family is here with you Bam....We love you guys keep doing what you do. Dont ever give up or let this keep you down....

@Bamer And what have you contributed to society, besides being a raging ******* and a troll here(and receiving tax payer welfare)? I love how so many comments are "Theyre overpaid", "No one cares", If you don't care why did you come to see? Just to be a jealous jerkoff and hate on this guy one last time? This isn't about anyone being humorous, overpaid, or anything else like that, it's about this young guy being in a unfortunate fatal event. That being said, if all you have to contribute to this is "Who cares" don't even waste your time, because all it does is show how truly pathetic your lives are for being such jealous uncaring prick.

I lost my best friend in a drunk driving accident and he was sober. The girl he was riding with was drunk and hit a pole killing him 21 years ago. He stopped at my house before she picked him up at his. I was the last to see him alive and think about that still everyday.She has to live with it as well. Well the fact that some self righteous ******** find this a good way of expressing their opinons about Ryan or the cast of jackass is in poor taste. We have all made mistakes and have regreted them. He paid the ultimate price and that is truly sad. His family and friends deserve respect for thier loss, not a pulpit from which you to preach.
