Celebrity Surgeon 'Was Tweeting Before Fatal Car Crash'

Celebrated plastic surgeon DR. FRANK RYAN was tweeting before his jeep careered off a cliff in California on Monday (16Aug10), according to his ex-girlfriend.
The surgeon, who had worked on a series of stars including Heidi Montag, Janice DICkinson and Gene Simmons, died after his vehicle crashed down a cliff off California's Pacific Coast Highway.
And his former partner, Charmaine Blake, reveals that the doctor was busy concentrating on his cell phone instead of driving.
She tells People.com, "He lived up in Malibu on a tiny street and he was texting while driving and he accidentally went over the cliff."
California Highway Patrol officials confirm that Ryan was using his phone before his death, but refused to single out that as the cause of the accident.
Officer Steven Reid tells the publication, "It is one of the elements that we are investigating."
Ryan hit headlines earlier this year (10) when he came under fire for transforming Montag with 10 cosmetic procedures in one day.

Seems like he just did not follow any rules...10 cosmetic procedures in 1 day? Driving while texting (DWT). When are these Drs' going to learn there are rules, laws & guidelines they must follow!!! I guess it's not a big deal since he caused his own death, but he could have cause someone else's death as well. Like dumb as Murray, not following proper propofol protocol.

That is so sad! Texting while driving. When are people going to realize that talking or texting while driving is just as bad as drinking and driving.What a waste of a life! He was only 50, way too young to die! People wake up!!!!!!!!!I'm happy that his beloved dog survived!
