LARUE COUNTY, KY (WAVE) - A LaRue County couple found dead underneath a vehicle at their home likely were crushed by the car, according to the LaRue County sheriff. Sheriff Merle Edlin said the couple's adult son made the discovery when he arrived home Tuesday night.
Authorities believe the car fell on the husband while he was working on it and that it then fell on his wife after she used a jack to lift the car off him. Merle said the wife was holding her husband's hand when their son found them, likely eight to 10 hours after the couple died at their home at 2517 Munfordville Road.
Merle said the son recently moved home from Arizona at his parents' request because of his father's health problems.
