FLORENCE, Ky. (WXIX) - An 80-year-old Northern Kentucky man has died three days after he was critically hurt in a single-vehicle crash, according to the Hamilton County Coroner’s Office.

Elmer Smith, 80, of Florence, was pronounced dead Tuesday at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, a coroner’s report shows.

According to the coroner’s office, the crash happened Saturday in Florence.

Major Philip Ridgell with the Boone County Sheriff’s Office said Smith’s vehicle rolled over on him in the 7100 block of Buffstone Drive.

Smith had parked his vehicle in his driveway and was getting out of it when it rolled over his legs first, Ridgell explained.

The vehicle then rolled over Smith’s torso, according to Ridgell.
