The reality star and a production assistant were killed early Monday in a car crash.

A toxicology report released Wednesday by the West Goshen Township Police reveals that Jackass star Ryan Dunn was drunk when he crashed his 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 early Monday morning in Pennsylvania, killing himself and passenger Zachary Hartwell.

Dunn's blood level was .196, more than twice the legal limit for drivers in Pennsylvania. The high .196 level indicates that alcohol made up nearly one-fifth of the total blood coursing through his body.
