BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - A coroner says a man who died after officers used a stun gun on him when he became combative after a weekend rollover crash suffered blunt-force trauma from the crash.

Warren County Coroner Kevin Kirby said on Monday that 52-year-old Michael Roll of Bowling Green suffered injuries consistent with the crash, but a cause of death won’t be released until toxicology results are back in two or three weeks.

State Police Trooper B.J. Eaton said previously that two state police troopers and a local sheriff’s deputy found Roll’s vehicle overturned Saturday night on William Natcher Parkway near Bowling Green. Eaton says Roll appeared intoxicated and became combative with officers, who shot him with a stun gun, rendering him unconscious.

Eaton said both Roll and the officers involved were white.
