Cops: Ryan Dunn Was VERY DRUNK During Crash

6/22/2011 10:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"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.

Too much vehicle for a drunk person who does not know how to handle it. Although a terrible tragedy, Dunn exits life a disgrace.
Too bad there was a passenger. At least he was not in a crowded area. Maybe if he would have been at a hash bar, he would have been driving that thing @ 30 mph.

my sincere aplogizes to dunns family and bam and his family as well as his love anige. Its a cryin shame how many people are a**** that are comenting. Dunn was a great guy always full of energy great humor. and then when something happens to a guy the world strat*****ing him. He had a life ahead of him. Big plans great attitude no its all lost and empty. It kills me about this. People act diff. toward it all but the thing is they all say "stick a car up your ass and youll get on to tv." but he was nt a bad guy for that he blessed people with humor and happiness. nothing will be the same in so many peoples lives. Bad judgement on dunns part maybe but i have pity on him. i feel awful.

im sorry all

I am not saying what he did was right, but you people are cruel. This is someone's son, someone's brother.

No one talking crap about Heath Ledger OD'ing on pills.
Or Hunter S. Thompson putting a gun to his head.

Both of those dudes are considered heroes.

He accomplished more, slept with more women, and made more money than you ever will in your pathetic TMZ commenting lives.

You know, as I read some of these immature posts, I've come to realize that I must be chatting with teenagers. These forums would be much better if they were 21 and older.

A Moron who killed a passenger. An Icon for Morons everywhere who feel some sort of license to stupid behavior. Hey this guy acts stupid for a living and was getting paid for it!

This life is full of traps and snares. I want young people to REALIZE that. It is tough to make a living without emulating morons and people who flip their finger at laws. Don't believe the people in the MEDIA who are feeding you crap about a "party lifestyle being so cool". Their kids will be going to law school and medical school while you will be rotting in a jail cell over a drug or alcohol offense.

James Dean might not have people pissing on his grave as one poster had said, but if he were reincarnated and alive today he would have people pissing on him instead. Trust me, he would be getting crap about "Everything". People in this time period suck serious ass, and thats why people drink like they do, and drive like they want to die imo.

No one was defending a drunk driver. They were defending a dead person who was innocent until proven guilty. You had no proof he was legally drun*****il an hour ago. So technically you're the Jackwagon! I suggest you go slap your mom for her not teaching you to respect and show some empathy/sympathy to the family and friends who have lost someone. Whether it be this way or that.

Whaaaaat!!!! NO! Oh Ryan.. why did you had to go and drive by yourself if you had some drinks before that..
Didn't know him in person, but I feel so sad about his death ;(

No one deserves to die this way, especially HE. I will always be a fan of you! May God bless your soul and may you rest in peace! <3

If there's someone to feel sorry for, feel sorry for the trees that he ran into.

They did nothing wrong, complete innocent bystanders. Funny, ha-ha, get it, bystanders.

I bet that Jackass would find it funny.

Let's face it there is a time and place for everything including being a "jackass". This was obviously one of the WRONG times. Period.
