ARROWSMITH, Ill. -- The autopsy results in a weekend ATV death has been released.

Kimmerling says preliminary results show there were no fatal traumatic injuries.

According to survivors, seat belts were not in use at the time of the crash and speed was not a factor in the incident.

Forensic toxicology tests will be ordered.
