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.

Wow for those of you saying he got what he deserved u should all rot in hell. there isn't one person in this universe that hasn't had to much to drink and made a bad choice. Unfortunately his bad choice ended in the death of he and his good friend. RIP Boys. Oh and those ripping Bam for protecting his friend from an gasbag like Roger Ebert should all go look in the mirror and ask urself if you would defend ur friends the same way. I know I would. We should all learn from this tragedy.

********************

bear, you're a complete moron if you think that EVERYONE in the universe drinks alcohol. Go read a book, please.

Where are all the Ryan Dunn apologists now?! What a bunch of ****bags! Put down the Hot Pocket, put on you stylish sweat pants and baseball cap that is too big for your narrow melon, and head on out to the local tattoo parlor and slap a Ryan Dunn memorial tatt on your obese, ink-covered ass.

Odd that some of the folks here lecturing about sensitivity are willing to slander the police involved here based on nothing. It’s unfortunate you are unable to understand even after it’s explained in plain English several times that a full tox report is not the same as a BAC reading but to use your thick headedness to manufacture lies about the unfortunate people who had to respond to this horrific wreck is irresponsible in the extreme. Why, pray tell, do you think the police would make up lies about this man when his best friends admit he was a menace behind the wheel and he himself saw fit to tweet pictures of himself drinking before the accident occurred? From what those closest to him admit, this is no shock. It’s sad but there is no need to slander innocent people doing their jobs.

3 beers and 3 shots is gonna get a dude that size that wasted? he was either not much of a drinker, or, that stuff was punched. because 3 beers and 3 shots is nothing, really.

Ryan Dunn gets zero sympathy from me. Everybody knows Drinking and Driving is wrong. Now not only will he be remembered as a jackass, but also a murderer.

TOO SOON! Give me a break. His buddies should be more worried about being TOO LATE for some other potential DUI.

Drinking is legal...Smoking pot is illegal.. but yet you always here of drunk driving accidents killing people.. Something is wrong with this, you dont hear stories about stoners driving into gaurd rails

Also, the passenger zach knew Dunn was drunk. He is just as much at fault. I feel for their families. Whats done is done. Let these families mourn, stop calling names. We all know it was wrong..no need to be ******** about it
