A Pittsburgh man had a heart attack either just before or as a result of a car wreck in Shaler, the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's office ruled Sunday.

Nicholas Dutkowsky, 90, died from cardiac arrest about the same time as the crash along Vilsack Road at 9 a.m. Saturday. He also received injuries to his torso in the crash.

Although the heart attack was ruled the cause of Dutkowsky's accidental death, the Medical Examiner's office could not say whether that was the cause of the crash.
