The body of a 34-year-old woman from Circle Pines was found in a car that crashed Sunday morning behind a home-improvement store in Blaine, authorities said.

An employee of Lowe’s at Central and 117th Avenues NE. made the discovery about 7 a.m., according to the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office.

Police did not identify the woman but said it does not appear there was any foul play.

The car hit a fence and law enforcement officers arrived to find the woman slumped over the steering wheel, the Sheriff’s Office added.

The Blaine Police Department, the Sheriff’s Office and the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office are investigating and said more information would be released Monday.
