Ryan Dunn, 34-years-old, has been killed in a car accident. It is known that he was drinking a few hours before the accident, evidenced by a photo he tweeted of himself hanging out with friends and drinking beer at a bar.
He was driving a 2007 Porsche 911 GT3. Another male passenger, Zachary Hartwell, 30, also from West Chester, Pennsylvania was in the car and died as well in the crash.
The car was fully engulfed in flames in the woods when police arrived, according to West Goshen police.
A preliminary examination of the crash site suggested that Dunn's Porsche might have been traveling more than 100 mph in the 55 mph zone when it jumped a guardrail and struck a tree and burst into flames.
The death of Ryan Dunn has also triggered the renewed awareness of the danger of drunk driving.
In an emailed statement to the AP Dunn's brother Eric Dunn shares:
We appreciate the support of Ryan's fans during this time, and we are grateful for your thoughts and prayers. Ryan will be greatly missed, but he will forever remain in our hearts.
Toxicology test on their bodies are being conducted and will be released by the West Goshen Township Police Department upon receipt of the written report of the findings.
