Cops: Ryan Dunn Was VERY DRUNK During Crash

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.

Two people lost and I just hope there is a lesson learned for all his fans and anyone who thinks partying hard includes Drinking and Driving, thats more like suicide, sooner or later it will catch up to you.

It's very obvious that level of BAC in the blood is not even safe at normal speeds, you add 130 MPH and even without it he would have been very close to reckless.

RIP and despite his mistake, I am sorry for his family and family of his friends, their loss can not be forogtten.

I don't care that he was drunk the loss of human life is a terrible thing!
This is affecting many many people and u just need to think what if it were your family or brother or father.... Yes people do stupid things but that does not give others the right to say he or anyone deserved it!
RIP Ryan and Zachary
Prayers & Positive vibes to ur family, JackAss family and the many many friends and fans that you have!!!

I thought they were appropriate when he said them and I think they are just as appropriate now.

I think someone owes Mr.Ebert an apology, maybe after he is done filiming himself "grieving" for whatever reality TV show he will get around to it.

If you want to go the bar have a designated driver or catch a cab or the bus, end of story

You were too young to die that firey death. I only take solace that there will be other 911's to carry on your majestic farfegnugen. Let's learn from this and let's save the Carreras so that they stay out of the hands of people like Ryan.

Ebert still shouldn't have said what he did when he did nor how he did. There is this little thing called tact that Ebert obviously lacks. It's sad that Dunn was drunk when he crashed and people should learn from this and like events to not drink and drive but use tact and class when you spread this message, don't insult the dead in your message.

The loss of life is terrible, but this will be a hard lesson learned... Sadly this man loss his life, but what if he would have killed an innocent person while he was driving drunk, and speeding?? Maybe people will learn from this guys dumb mistake, and not drink and drive.

CC - THE ORIGINAL    

OK...now, boys and girls....what did you learn today??? The jackass WAS drunk and MURDERED his VICTIM....going 130 mph, too!!!!!!
Just a little FYI for all you kiddies who are boo-hooing the loss of a drunk, speeding d'bag who's only claim to fame is shoving a play car up his butt....he IS a murderer!! I lost my BROTHER to a drunk jackass!!!!!!
So, the VICTIMS family can NOW sue his estate - unless he stuffed THAT up his azz, too.
Drunk OR sober....YOU, the driver, is responsible for all the passengers in the vehicle YOU are operating. IF you are found to be the cause resulting in an accident, the passengers, or if you've killed them, then their family, have a legal right to sue your azz.
Perhaps, before you all bash those talking "rationally" about this tragedy, YOU should check on YOUR responsibilities as the driver....drunk OR sober....and PRAY you NEVER kill someone while you're goin 130 mph at 2 1/2 X the legal limit.

people...BAC has nothing to do with tox reports. they get BAC from a simple blood test. Tox tests take so long because everything is broken down and they search for everything.

You can get a BAC almost immediately (an hour or so), which is how they get BAC from drunk drivers who wont do the breath test.

Why do people have compassion for an individual who made a conscious decision to over indulge himself in Alcohol ( 2 in a half times over the limit ??? ) get into a motor vehicle that has been built specifically for SPEED and drive that motor vehicle with a " friend " at a EXTREMELY dangerous high rate of speed...

HE COULD HAVE KILLED A FAMILY WITH LITTLE KIDS IN THE VAN COMING HOME FROM SOME FAMILY FUNCTION...

I HAVE NO SYMPATHY FOR THIS CLOWN AND I HOPE THE WEST BURROW BAPTIST CHURCH DO PICKET THIS LOW LIFES FUNERAL LIKE THEY SAY THEY ARE...

My two cents...

oh ya about that clown BAM who probably issued a press release that he would be at the crash site on such and such date and at such and such time ( GET A LIFE HOW COULD YOU USE THE DEATH OF YOUR " CHILDHOOD FRIEND " AS A PUBLICITY STUNT ??? YOU TWO ALWAYS LAUGHED IN THE FACE OF DANGER WELL GUESS WHAT KARAMA IS A B1TCH

do something read a book, check your local state laws, instead of killing your braincells watching folks like this from MTV.

NOTHING SAD about the JACKASS dying - he knew the consequences of his criminal behavior! The sad thing is that the JACKASS killed somebody else and could have killed even more, poor, unsuspecting souls!

It's time for the Government to put hideous scenes of death labels on beer and alcohol containers!
