MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - An autopsy report says a Klamath Falls man who fled from officers into the woods on a cold and rainy night died of exposure and hypothermia.

The Medford Mail Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1uYiUVc ) the body of 32-year-old Christopher Sellars was found Friday east of Ashland by a Southern Oregon University professor and his class returning from a field trip to study wetlands.

Oregon state troopers say Sellars and two other men fled Dec. 19 from a traffic stop in Klamath County, and during the chase threw an incendiary device made from a gas can at police vehicles.

The chase ended in Jackson County. Sellars and 24-year-old William Noble ran, and 25-year-old Levi Cortez surrendered. Noble was arrested the next day. He and Cortez face drug and other charges.
