The investigation into the sad death of Ryan Dunn and passenger Zachary Hartwell is still continuing in Pennsylvania. Police now believe that Ryan had more than the 6 drinks that had appeared on his bill. Over a 4 hour period Dunn was first believed to only have 2 beers and 4 shots. But now police investigators believe fans had bought Ryan more drinks, at least 1 beer and 2 shots before he left the bar at 2am.
Ryan Dunn died after he lost control of his car and hit a guardrail and then some trees at speeds of 140 mph. His blood alcohol level is believed to have been around .19 which is well over the legal limit. The crash occurred about 30 minutes after Dunn and Hartwell left the bar, meaning his blood alcohol level was continuing to rise after those final drinks he consumed.
Friends and family of Ryan Dunn gathered this past week for a private memorial service. His dear friends and ‘Jackass’ co-stars Johnny Knoxville and Bam Margera were visibly upset during Wednesday’s service. Bam Margera’s mother, April, who was a part of the ‘Jackass’ franchise was quoted as saying “I felt like I have lost one of my own sons when I heard that Ryan Dunn died”. Ryan Dunn will be missed dearly by many.
