STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) _ The Chief Medical Examiner’s Office says a man found in a car in Stamford last weekend died of accidental carbon monoxide poisoning.
Relatives found 47-year-old Darrell Grant of Stamford dead in his car on Highland Avenue on Sunday. Police believe he parked the car and left it running while he went to sleep, but the exhaust pipe was blocked by snow and carbon monoxide got into the interior of the vehicle.
Police say the car had run out of gas and the battery was dead when officers arrived at the scene Sunday.
Grant’s relatives say they hadn’t seen him since Friday but were able to find him because he often parked his car in the Highland Avenue area.
