West Goshen Police reports that Ryan Dunn was drunk and speeding when he crashed his Porsche killing himself and his passenger, Zachary D. Hartwell.
West Goshen Police Chief Michael Carroll said Wednesday that “Jackass” star Ryan Dunn’s blood alcohol content (BAC) was more than twice the state’s legal limit and he may have been traveling as fast as 140 mph at the time Dunn crashed his Porsche Monday morning, killing himself and his passenger.
Carroll said Dunn’s BAC was .196 at the time of the accident. The legal limit in Pennsylvania is .08. Carroll said alcohol was the only substance in Dunn’s system.
“No other substances were found in his blood other than the alcohol,” Carroll said.
The West Goshen Police Department also announced that an accident reconstruction team determined Dunn was traveling between 132 and 140 mph when his vehicle collided with a guardrail, landed in the woods and burst into flames about 2:40 a.m. Monday near Pottstown Pike.
Dunn, 34, and his passenger, Zachary D. Hartwell, both of West Chester were pronounced dead at the scene.Source: dailylocal.com
