Man found dead in submerged car

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Authorities say a man who was found in a submerged car in North Little Rock has been pronounced dead.

Pulaski County Coroner Gordon Camper says 50-year-old Kenny Raines was found Thursday night in a vehicle in a low-lying area of the city.

Camper says he is waiting for toxicology results before declaring a cause of death, but he said that the death appears to be an accident.

Raines died as a 2-day stretch of storms coursed over Arkansas. Numerous areas reported roads closed due to flooding. Storms damaged buildings in south Arkansas, and knocked over trees and utility lines.
