BOULDER, Colorado — The Boulder County Coroner's Office has ruled that the death of a 21-year-old hiker who fell 150 feet in May was accidental.

The Daily Camera reports (http://bit.ly/1MBFCOc ) that Justin Bondi, of Boulder, died of blunt force trauma as a result of an accidental fall.

Officials say Bondi was hiking with a friend near Flagstaff Mountain on May 3 when he started shaking and fell backward about 150 feet.

According to the autopsy report, Bondi's system contained traces of marijuana, cocaine and the anti-anxiety medication Xanax. There were no signs of any abnormal medical conditions that might have caused the shaking.
