Ryan Dunn twice over legal limit

A toxicology report has revealed that Jackass star Ryan Dunn's blood-alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit when he and a passenger died in a car crash.

West Goshen Township Police has released the report, which showed that at the time Dunn crashed his car in a Philadelphia suburb early on Monday morning, his level was 0.196.

In Pennsylvania, the legal limit for drivers is 0.08.

Dunn, 34, was driving his Porsche in a 55mph area when it veered off the road, crashed into woods and burst into flames.

Both Dunn and the passenger, 30-year-old Zachary Hartwell, died early on Monday as they were travelling back from a bar in West Chester.

Police have said that at the time of the accident the car may have been driven as fast as 140mph.

Dunn had tweeted a photo from the bar of the pair and a third man drinking just hours before the crash. The photo has since been taken down.

Mr Hartwell was credited as a production assistant for the second Jackass movie.

Mourners placed flowers and took photos at the accident scene in West Chester, while Facebook and Twitter were buzzing with condolences from fans around the world and friends from Hollywood to Chester County.
