Dr. Frank Ryan, 50, a plastic surgeon who worked on celebrities including television star Heidi Montag, died on Monday after his 1995 Jeep Wrangler went off the side of the Pacific Coast Highway near Malibu, reports the Associated Press.

Just before the car accident, he was sending a Twitter message about his dog, People.com reports, citing Ryan’s ex-girlfriend.

"He lived up in Malibu on a tiny street and he was texting while driving and he accidentally went over the cliff," his ex-girlfriend, celebrity publicist Charmaine Blake, says.

Ryan was indeed texting before the crash, confirmed the California Highway Patrol.

The cause of the accident hasn’t yet been determined, the story says. Ryan’s dog, Jill, was in the car during the crash and survived the accident, the article adds.


  1. Too bad ALL people who text while driving can’t meet their fate in this way!

  2. Another candidate for the Darwin Awards.

  3. Shoot…I was gonna say something witty but y’all beat me to it. Sorry, Doc, we have our quota of dumbasses. Off you go!

  4. Since no ninnocents were harmed by this I don’t feel the least bit bad about this, but what will all the poor narcissistic millionares do now????

  5. Come on now…don’t feel sorry for the good doctor…he was steering with his knees and whacking away at the keyboard with his thumbs and he, of course, had his head down so he could see what he was writing…and wham…did somebody order a curve? and what was he typing that was more important than his life?? The dog, being smarter, jumped into the back seat and put his paws over his face and survived! Mans best friend and smarter than the doctor. Nature has a way of weeding out the dumbasses who take a chance ’cause it won’t happen to them!”
    I understand that AT&T is working on a helmet so you can watch the road AND A MOVIE and text…all at the same time. I’ll bet folks will be standing in line to buy it!

  6. Poor Jeep.

  7. Why is a Hollywood Plastic Surgeon driving a 15 year-old Jeep!

  8. Wow … was it really important to post a message about one’s dog onto Twitter while attempting to navigate the PCH? So the doctor dies and the dog (who was also in the vehicle)survives. Wonder if the dog is the doc’s beneficiary?

  9. 🙂 i luv my dog hes so cute omg a curve ahhhhhhh…….

  10. How many of the compassionate comments above came from Democrats? A man is dead and people crack jokes. Sad.

  11. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  12. Lohan Goes to Rehab Today,. its just a ploy to decrease the jail time therefore, the judge will probably be lax with her. Cushy treatment is sooo much better than imprisonment, most likely the judge will likely not give her any jail time for the reason that he will probably be so happy!
