Dr. Frank Ryan, plastic surgeon to the stars, is dead after being involved in a terrible car crash.
After his Jeep went over the side of Pacific Coast Highway (PCH), Dr. Frank Ryan was tended to by lifeguards; however, they could not save him. He had suffered major head trauma and was trapped inside the vehicle. The Ventura County Fire Department also attempted to helicopter him from the scene of the accident but the rescue was called off. Dr. Ryan was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.
Dr. Frank Ryan was only 50 years old.
Ironically, Dr. Ryan tweeted only minutes before the car crash:
“After 25 years of driving by, I finally hiked to the top of the giant sand dune on the pch west of Malibu. Much harder than it looks! Whew!”

His very last tweet was:
“Border collie jill surveying the view from atop the sand dune”
..and he attached the following pic:
The dog, who was also in the car crash, was found in the ocean, seriously injured. However, she survived the accident and is being cared for at a veterinary hospital. Poor girl.
