Los Angeles, California (CNN) — The Beverly Hills plastic surgeon who remade Heidi Montag died when his Jeep plunged off a Malibu highway into the ocean Monday, a California Highway Patrol spokesman said.
Dr. Frank Ryan, 50, had just finished hiking with his border collie on a giant sand dune along the Pacific Coast Highway when the crash happened, according to his own Twitter message posted minutes earlier.
“The Jeep veered to the right and ran off the roadway,” Officer Steven Reid said. “The Jeep overturned down a rocky embankment towards the ocean and eventually came to rest on its roof.”
The dog was seriously injured, Reid said. It was taken to a veterinary hospital for treatment.
