Actor and singer Leslie Jordan passed away unexpectedly on Monday (October 24) at the age of 67. Page Six reports:

The famed comedian was driving in Hollywood when, it was later suspected, he suffered some sort of medical emergency and crashed his BMW into the side of a building.”

Now, the Captain of the Los Angeles Fire Department has revealed some new details about Jordan’s death. 

Captain Erik Scott told Fox News Digital that an adult male was found “pulseless and non-breathing” at the scene of the crash. That adult male was Jordan, who Scott confirmed was the “sole occupant” of the vehicle.

Scott provided additional details:

LAFD responders quickly freed him from his seat belt and removed him from the vehicle to commence CPR and defibrillation, which continued with advanced life support measures by LAFD Paramedics for more than 40 minutes.”

Scott continued:

Without a change in his status and absent vital signs of life; and with concurrence of the medical control Physician at the Paramedic Base Station Hospital, the patient was determined deceased at the scene at 9:38 AM.”

Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner Public Information Officer Sarah Ardalani provided a statement to Fox News Digital which says an examination related to Jordan’s death “is pending.”

Jordan’s team said he was working on a new project he “was really proud of and was looking forward to sharing with the world” at the time of his death. In the last video he posted, Jordan can be heard singing the hymn “When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder.” In the caption, Jordan said he had “a new original song that should be comin’ out real soon.”
