The death of a man found in a crashed car in Salem was not caused by the crash, according to police.

A 2002 Dodge Stratus was discovered on southbound 12th Street Southeast near Bellevue Street Northeast at 12:47 a.m. Wednesday.

The car had crashed into the abutment of a bridge crossing Pringle Creek. Breyer was found dead in the driver’s seat.
