Police say Ryan Dunn was drunk and speeding at 140mph before crash

The tire marks show the flight path of Ryan Dunn's Porsche.

Police say that Jackass star Ryan Dunn was drunk and speeding up to 140 mph when his 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 crashed into trees and caught fire on a Pennsylvania highway last Monday.

Ryan Dunn, 34, and his friend Zachary Hartwell, 30, died from “blunt and thermal trauma” in the fiery crash, according to the autopsy report released Tuesday.

“The initial crash reconstruction investigation determined that Mr. Dunn’s vehicle was traveling between 132-140 mph at the time of the collision,” West Goshen Police Chief Michael Carroll said in a statement Wednesday.

Toxicology testing by the coroner indicated Dunn’s blood alcohol concentration was 0.196%, which is more than twice the legal state limit of 0.08, Carroll said.

Zachary Hartwell had previously worked as a stunt car driver on Minghads, a 2009 comedy directed by Jackass star Bam Margera and featuring Ryan Dunn.

West Goshen Police were called to the wreck scene on State Route 322 at 2:30 a.m. Monday, the police report said.

“Upon arrival, police located one vehicle off the road and in the woods that was fully engulfed in flames,” the report said.
