Saget passed away on Jan. 9 at age 65. The comedian was found dead in his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Florida, one day after he performed as part of his standup tour.

On Wednesday, the comic’s family announced in a statement that Saget’s death stemmed from an accidental blow to the head.

“The authorities have determined that Bob passed from head trauma,” the Saget family said. “They have concluded that he accidentally hit the back of his head on something, thought nothing of it and went to sleep. No drugs or alcohol were involved.”

Saget was best known for his role as beloved single dad Danny Tanner on the sitcom “Full House” and as the wisecracking host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos.”
