Ryan Dunn's Passenger Indentified as Drinking Pal

6/21/2011 6:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Officials have identified the passenger who was killed in "Jackass" star Ryan Dunn's 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.

Zachary Hartwell

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.

Hartwell is credited as a production assistant on the "Jackass 2" movie and recently had a small role in the Bam Margera-directed 2009 movie "Minghags."

I live and work near these 2. They're always in the bar getting trashed and then driving. Couldn't imagine if they killed an innocent bi-stander. Grow up...

Would you be this judgmental if this happened to someone in your family? Tragedy is no time for self-righteousness

Now that they've been showing this photo for 2 days straight. If you look at Ryan Dunn, it looks like he's looking into his drink, like it taste funny. Plus it looks like he's drinking Ice Tea. It's all dark on top and light on the bottom. For all the non drinkers out there. Beer is either light or dark.

And beer you put a lime in is always light.
Either that or he's drinking Corona Amber/Stout.

good thing? he didn't take out any families or pedistrians...if you are going to be a jackass and kill yourself, take another drunk with you. too many of my friends have lost parents, friends, kids to stupid drunken sympathy at all for either one of them.

good, im glad he's dead, in fact this picture should be on billboards.... people who defend/gloss over the fact that he was drinking and driving should be in a DD accident to see how it feels. jackass was never funny, and if you think it was, you already had brain damage to begin with; lol you probably thought the hangover 2 was a surprise, and not unlike the first at all... but the fact that this guy was just a plain old jack ass to do what he did, im not surprised.....
