HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say a jail inmate died in a hospital west of Portland Wednesday after deputies found him unresponsive in his cell.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (https://goo.gl/amgTNf ) 58-year-old Dale Thomsen was found around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday in a cell at the Washington County Jail.

Washington County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. David Thompson says he was taken to a local hospital where he died.

Thompson says the man died of a medical condition. He declined to release more specific information.

Thomsen was booked into the jail Sunday on an outstanding warrant for failing to appear in court.

The warrant stemmed from a January charge of failure to perform the duties of a driver, court records show.
