Autopsy results indicated that 22-year-old Jeremy Ralston drowned after a traffic accident that ended with Ralston's car upside down in the Salamonie River near the south end of Main Street in Warren.

According to Indiana Conservation Officer Bryan Beneke, on the morning of Sunday, March 20, a Warren resident located a vehicle upside-down in approximately three feet of water in the middle of the Salamonie River.

At the dead end of Main Street in Warren, Ralston's vehicle continued south off of the road, went airborne and came to rest on its roof in the Salamonie River.
