Lincoln police are investigating the death of a 40-year-old woman found in a car Tuesday morning near 10th and Van Dorn streets.

Karla Lewis of Lincoln was discovered at about 7:45 a.m., Officer Erin Spilker said.

She said at this time, there is no indication of foul play.

"However, we are awaiting autopsy results before we decide about what the cause of death was," Spilker said. 

She said the car Lewis was found in had damage consistent with being involved in an accident, and police later found a tree about a half mile away at 13th and Arapahoe streets that they believe that she hit.
