PORT ARTHUR, TX- The Port Arthur, Texas Police Department said a man appeared to have struggled to get out of his C6 Corvette before he was found dead Monday afternoon still inside the car.

When the man was noticed unresponsive in the car, the person who found him inside tried to get him out.

The fire department was called and was able to get the door open. They found that the man and his dog were both dead inside.
