Ryan Dunn BAC over limit

Posted on

Pennsylvania’s West Goshen police department has confirmed that Jackass star Ryan Dunn’s blood alcohol concentration far surpassed the legal limit when during his fatal collision early Monday morning. Dunn’s BAC measured .196 percent. The legal limit in Pennsylvania is .08 percent. No other substances turned up in Dunn’s blood, however.

Through a scene reconstruction, the police department also determined that Dunn was driving between 132 and 140 miles per hour when he lost control of his car and ran off the road. The county coroner’s office previously classified the accidental death to be caused by blunt trauma and the heat of the fire from the explosion caused when Dunn’s 2007 Porsche collided with trees.

Jackass 2 crew member Zachary Hartwell was also killed in the crash.
