A man died in a wreck on the Old Spiral Highway in Lewiston on Wednesday afternoon.

The man, whose name wasn’t released pending notification of his family, was found unresponsive in a gray Honda Civic that was on its side in the ditch, according to a news release from the Nez Perce County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff’s deputies and Lewiston medics responded to the crash at 2:22 p.m. The man was pronounced dead at the scene, the news release said.
