Autopsy rules Sioux City man's death "accidental"


An autopsy has ruled the death of a Sioux City man, who died during a traffic stop in Dakota County, Nebraska, was an accident.

Back on November 3rd, Nebraska State Patrol officers pulled over 35-year-old Matthew Ahlsten at the intersection of Highways 20 and 110, near South Sioux City, for failing to signal. During the stop, authorities say Ahlsten had a seizure, and died at the scene.

Dakota County attorney Kim Watson, who also serves as the county coroner, says Ahlsten died of methamphetamine toxicity.

A grand jury later found that there was no criminal conduct on the part of anyone that caused, or contributed to, Ahlsten's death.
