Cops: Ryan Dunn Was VERY DRUNK During Crash

"Jackass" star Ryan Dunn was extremely intoxicated at the time of his fatal crash Monday morning ... with a blood alcohol level of more than TWICE the legal limit ... this according to cops.

West Goshen Police Chief Michael Carroll told the Daily Local News ... Dunn's B.A.C. was .196 ... nearly two-and-a-half times the legal limit in Pennsylvania, which is .08.

Carroll added, "No other substances were found in his blood other than the alcohol."

As TMZ reported, Dunn and his passenger were killed when Dunn lost control of his Porsche, crashed in a wooded area and his car exploded in flames.


UPDATE: Now cops are saying Dunn was traveling between 132 and 140 MPH at the time of his crash.

So so so SAD to hear about Ryan Dunn. What a tragic way to die and to die so young. Hopefully the jackass crew will take this as a lesson to slow down and treat life valuable instead o*****igantic joke/stunt!

This is very sad. Not only did he die, but he also killed another human being.

How would the police know his BAC level when in a previous report it said the toxicology report takes 4-6 weeks?

If it was a shopping cart he might have made it.

Probably a preliminary basic testing of the blood like they do at hospitals and such. Those only take hours sometimes.

Twice the limit only on 3 shots and 3 beers? Good grief, he must not have had any food on his stomach.
It was the speed that killed him. If he were in a Prius, he'd still be alive.

How do they know his blood alcohol level? Previous reports have said that they were in a burning car prior to help arriving. The tox reports take longer than this to get back.

Misty: Officers routinely have blood samples taken from an accident when they believe the driver is intoxicated. So they just have the blood tested for BAC and any other illegal drugs. The toxicology tests are a bit more complex in that they try to identify everything that in the blood at the time.

Hope that helps. :)

I thought we would not know the BAC level for another 4 to 6 weeks. How did the cops get this?
