Ryan Dunn was drunk when he died in a car accident in Pennsylvania on June 20. His blood alcohol was twice the legal limit.
Investigators have confirmed some information from a toxicology report conducted by the coroner. The blood alcohol level was 0.196. The legal limit in Pennsylvania is 0.08.
Police in West Goshen has completed the reconstruction of the accident that killed Dunn, 34, and his passenger Zachary Hartwell, 30. The vehicle was travelling at a speed ranging from 130 to 140 mph at the time of impact. The Porsche 911 GT3 he was driving went off the road before hitting a tree and burst into flames.
“I’ve never seen a car destroyed in an automobile accident the way this car was even before it caught on fire,” West Goshen Police Chief Michael Carroll said. “The automobile actually came apart. It was unbelievable and I’ve been on a lot of fatal accident scenes. This is by far the worse I’ve ever seen,” reports RadarOnline.
The autopsy revealed that the crash was so violent that it’s impossible to determine if the two died from the impact itself or from the fire that resulted.
Over the past 13 years, Dunn had collected breaches of traffic regulations. There were at least 23 in his case, crimes committed in six different countries.
He was also arrested twice: in 2001 for a violation of traffic laws, and in 2005 for DUI. The latter charges were erased from his record after probation. His driver’s license was also suspended for one year following the case.
A private funeral will be held Wednesday for Dunn.
Bam Margera, a close friend and colleague of Dunn, gave his one and only interview since the tragedy to the FOX 29 station. He is devastated at the loss of his friend.
