The surgeon, who had worked on a series of stars including Heidi Montag, Janice Dickinson and Gene Simmons, died after driving his Jeep over a cliff while travelling back to his office after a hike with his dog.

His ex-girlfriend Charmaine Blake had suggested that Ryan was uploading a photo of his pet onto his Twitter site when he died, but a California Highway Patrol investigation has discovered evidence to the contrary.

A final report into the tragedy states that an "unsafe turning movement" led to Ryan drifting off a rocky embankment.

An official tells TMZ.com, "There was no evidence of any other contributing factors in the cause of this collision."
