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."

Too Bad!.....For the Porsche!! A GT3 is not a toy plus drinking and driving is not game. How is this guy smart enough to be able to make the ca***** takes to purchase a GT3 yet be so stupid to get behind the wheel while drunk? Even the article photos have him look like a total looser. Dumb looking and drunk. I definetly feel sorry for the Porsche because a GT3 has brought more smiles to my face than this fool ever did on his unfunny comedy. A tragic senseless loss of a engineering masterpiece.

Final Score:
Porsche 1
Ryan Dunn and Zachary Hartwell 0.....Get over it!

Almar you hit the nail on the head.Who cares if he was drunk or just driving fast the only thing that matters is that the two men died and that really really sucks. Love him or hate him he died I personally like jackass it had its moments but I surely wouldnt want to see anyone get killed no matter what. So all you ppl that have negetive things to say just remeber it could happen to anyone even you and yours God forbid so relax.

The loss of ones friend no matter the cause is still tramatic for anyone and it is all so understandable as to the hurt and pain that his family and friends are going through,but to see people post coments that are geared to be detrimental to the deceased ones name is totally uncalled for. I want to say to Bam and all of Ryan's friends that at a time like this we must remember just how bightly Ryan's candle glowed in life an how it will live in your hearts . My heart goes out to his Family and friends..please except my condolences.

A very tragic accident. Looking at the car any one can see that he was going at high speed along with his drinking. It was for the asking.Then his friend with him was killed.Some people think they can go around and do anything they want too.

Regardless of what happened, you live life like a jackass you deserve what you get. The only thing funny about all of this is that you call these people "celebrities" as if they had a talent. They have no talent, they just are idiots trying to gain attention. Not exactly a role model for anyone to follow and to think they are celebrities. People like this do nothing to improve or help society in anyway.

Tim you're a POS C B hater you are a Bigger POS

God Speed Bam! I'll celebrate you when I think of you throughout the rest of my life, not what happened. And for all the ********...... you were not there! Christ knows I have driven staright as an arrow and hit deer I could NOT avoid, but if I was drunb and DID Avoid the deer, went off the road and died It would be because I was drunk, not because a deer jumped the guardrail and forced me to save it's life!! I HATE People who JUDGE Others and have no right because THEY WERE NOT THERE!! Happens to me a lot, but I just carry on.......Take the fat **** behind the desk at yellowbook in Memphis Tenn. Daryll, who has not seen his penis iin over twenty years!!!! He was in an office 35 miles away from where these kids shot a marble we found AT my helper and they broke the Glass Storm Door WHY THE HELL would we have broken a window setting a book on a porch after we earned $240 already that day. IT WAS the last delivery of the day! And this *********ays "It is obvious you broke the window, you delivered the phone book!" Remember this Daryll, YOU have a house, you should thnk about who you ******* piss off because it might come back and bite you in your fat ******* ass! SO all of you Judges who were NOT at the scene of the accident waitign for the accident to happen.....**** off! Even those who were at the BAR have no idea because they were NOT THERE. buddha teaches us to KNOW not to just Believe! And I am NOT goign to advertise here like Tim did. You are a Schlep, Tim!!
