Dr. Ryan's Jeep went over the side of Pacific Coast Highway Monday (Aug. 16) at around 4:30 PM.  The Jeep landed on rocks and Ryan, 50, was trapped in the vehicle with major head injuries. After the fire department tried and failed to hoist him with a helicopter, Ryan was pronounced dead at the scene.

Upon learning the news Tuesday morning (Aug. 17), Heidi tweets, "I am devastated to hear the news of Dr. Frank Ryan's death. He was the most amazing person I have ever known. He was an angel and changed my life.
