SAN ANTONIO - San Antonio homicide detectives are investigating the death of a man whose body was found inside a crashed car just north of downtown.

Police were called to an area of San Pedro Avenue near San Antonio College around 3:15 a.m. Friday.

Paramedics who also arrived attempted to perform CPR but determined the driver of the light-colored convertible was dead.

Although the car, itself, did not appear to have any major damage, police say the man suffered fatal injuries or wounds. A police sergeant at the scene said detectives have ruled out homicide, calling it a "sudden death."

During the investigation, they roped off a SAC student parking lot and closed San Pedro Avenue to traffic near West Ashby Place. It has since reopened.

Police said the man who died appeared to be in his 30s.
