DELHI, Iowa — An 18-year-old man found unresponsive in a running car in eastern Iowa has died.
The Delaware County Sheriff's Office say Cole Haan died Monday morning after he and 17-year-old Nichole Lucas breathed in carbon monoxide from the car. Deputies found the pair in the car near Maquoketa Valley High School in Delhi on Saturday night.

Investigators say the vehicle's exhaust pipe was broken, allowing fumes to enter the vehicle.
