Report rules McClendon’s death accidental
The March 2 car crash in which would-be Saugatuck Township developer Aubrey McClendon died was an accident, the Oklahoma medical examiner's office ruled June 8, also noting the energy magnate had traces of a drug in his system commonly used in sleep aids.
The eight-page autopsy report shows McClendon, 56, suffered multiple broken bones after driving his 2013 Chevy Tahoe at high speed into a bridge abutment and his body was badly burned after he died. The report lists multiple blunt force trauma as the cause of death.
