BRIDGEPORT, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say a man drowned after his car ran into a Nebraska Panhandle lake.

Morrill County Attorney Travis Rodak says pathologists have ruled that 50-year-old Brett Golden, of Redington, died of an accidental drowning last week.

Golden was pronounced dead Wednesday evening at Bridgeport State Recreation Area. Rodak says Golden's car hit a tree before entering a small lake near the beach area of the recreation area's main lake. A couple of campers spotted the car, which was almost totally submerged. Golden's body was found inside.

The autopsy could not determine whether Golden's medical condition contributed to the accident.
