PEORIA, Ill. -- A Coroner's Jury has ruled the death of a 33-year-old Peoria man "undetermined".

On Tuesday, a Peoria County Coroner's jury was unable to determine why Clarence Hanson drove his vehicle into the Illinois river last May.

An autopsy showed that Hanson died of drowning and further testing revealed he had alcohol in his system at the time of his death.
