The Bridgeport Police Department is investigating the death of a man found in his vehicle on Owens Street Friday night.
Cpl. Richard Taylor said just before midnight a 47-year-old man was found not breathing and locked in his car, which was parked in the 300 block of Owens Street in Bridgeport. He was discovered by family members who called 911. In the meantime, they also managed to pry the door open. The man was sitting in the driver’s seat.
Wise County medics and the Bridgeport Fire Department were dispatched to the scene, along with the PD, but upon arrival, medics immediately determined the man was deceased. He was pronounced dead by a Wise County justice of the peace.
Taylor said the cause of death is undetermined, and it remains under investigation. The man’s body was sent to the Dallas County Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy. More information will be reported as it’s available.
