Former model Janice Dickinson begged pal FRANK RYAN to replace his unsafe jeep in the days leading up to the celebrity plastic surgeon's death on Monday (16Aug10).
Ryan lost control of the vehicle on his way back from a hike with his dog and drove over a cliff in Malibu, California, and now DICkinson, who attended a candlelit vigil for her pal earlier this week (begs16Aug10), has revealed she knew he'd be killed if he didn't change his mode of transport.
She tells Access Hollywood, "I'm angry that he drove that Jeep Wrangler, which has a high suspension, on windy roads on the PCH (Pacific Coast Highway).
"I had told him to get rid of that car because you need a more stable car."
DICkinson sobbed on the TV show as she was shown photos of the crash site and the picture of his dog which Ryan was reportedly sending to his Twitter.com page when he lost control of his car.
She added, "This is the picture that should keep us off the cellphones... Stay off the cellphones."
