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."

Honestly, there are so many douchebags saying they're glad he's dead... Whether or not you hated the man, he still had friends and loved ones that are mourning over his death... Respect his death and be a complete **** about it after some time has passed

I had the dis satifaction of accidently seeing the movie jackass. i felt violated as i saw it.i cringed and your not right margera, sorry we are parents.we dis approve of mental stupidity infront of our kids faces.and copy cat kids copy it , and get killed. maybe even shoving cars up there asses. like i saw in the movie (sick) what comes around seems to go around? not funny is it? NO! time to get serious sometimes in life. some guys dont ever grow up! or some drunks never make it to kill on the rd.im glad no kids or family got killed with the two men, no consern/clue? for others on the road that night! the truth hurts them, but not as bad as them taking the life of a child? i am so sorry for the loss of anyone including dunn and hartwell, there humans too.and loved by ? somebody. we the outsiders only saw them being reckless with there own lives and commit harm to there bodies on tv , we otherwise dont know them personally like the other jackasses do. but there stupidity caused there death! maybe bad association took a part in stunting them too? i worry about our kids seeing this,,its wreckless all over again and they are responsible for there own death. blame the other jackasses for letting there friends drive home drunk! havent you ever heard friends dont let friends drive home drunk? its all sue the bar now right sue sue sue,, but the drunks will keep producing drunks. its more your friends fault than someone saying the name of there show! boy oh boy what jackasses! THAT HAD TO HURT! OOOOH OUCH I CAN FEEL THAT JUST BY SEEING THE PICTURE. YOU JACKASSES ALWAYS WANTED US TO SEE YOUR PAIN? i didnt want to see that either!! OOOF, OUCH! @@ that was mistakenly getting into the hands of my teenage boys , clearly even gay suggestions aimed at our younger crowd.heck shoving cars up your butt is just plain perverted,not for the majority . suggest nothing! that awful self mutalating movie . hurting your body wasnt funny and ok! kids already think they are invincible, they think driving wont kill them, and seeing older men do this shows them they wont die! and they dont need to see more ! jackasses should be banned . (show it in prison were the stupid mental casses are already brain damaged not on our cable tv!! infront of our kids!) WE THE PEOPLE! WE HAVE SPOKEN! AND I HAVE HEARD A LARGE GROUP OF PARENTS DISCUSS THERE FEELINGS OF THERE KIDS SEEING JACKASS< AND THE FEELINGS ARE MUTUAL. SORRY FOR ANY LIVES LOST > STOP DRUNK DRIVING!!

Under Pennsylvania law wouldn't Barnaby's of America and the serving Bartender be held responsible for this happening by not cutting him off from further drinking and driving? This is truly sad that such a funny and wonderful person lost his life and his friends life. My heart goes out to all those who are involved.

I'm not an advocate of lawsuits, except in grossly obvious neglect or criminal liability, however if he drank all the alcohol from 1 bar, they should be held accountable for over-serving him. Dunn's family will no doubt be sued by the passenger's family.

Not only is he a Jackass he is now a murderer too. This idiot put his life and the lives of his millions of impressionable idiot followers in danger for far too many years. It is good that they will now see the end result of a life misspent. Thank goodness there was not some decent person on the road that night or he may have taken their life too.
