CAMBRIA – Niagara County sheriff’s deputies were called to investigate a suspicious vehicle Thursday morning and found a man deceased, slumped over the wheel in the driver’s seat, just after 8 a.m. on Lockport Road, between Shawnee and Mapleton roads.

“There was no sign of a struggle. It looks like he just pulled over and died,” said Niagara County Sheriff James R. Voutour. “We are treating it as a crime scene until we can determine a cause.”

Voutour said it looks like the man had been there for awhile before they found him.

The man who was not identified was in his late 30s or early 40s and believed to live in Buffalo, according to Voutour.

The Niagara County Sheriff’s Criminal Investigation Bureau will continue to investigate. The body was turned over to the Erie County Medical Examiner for an autopsy.
