PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The estate of Ryan Dunn is being sued by the parents of a man who died along with the “Jackass” star in a car crash last year in suburban Philadelphia.

Zachary Hartwell’s parents are suing Dunn’s estate and the restaurant where Dunn was drinking before he crashed his Porsche 911 GT3 around 3 a.m. on June 20, 2011.

Police say Dunn had a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit for drivers and was going as fast as 140 mph before the one-car crash.

The suit first reported by Courthouse News Service says Dunn was visibly intoxicated and shouldn’t have been served by the restaurant. A state police investigation, however, cleared the bar of wrongdoing.

A phone message left for a lawyer for Dunn’s estate wasn’t immediately returned Thursday.
