Car Overturns on S. Fort Thomas Avenue

FTM file. 
Today at 1:50 p.m. a late model Toyota Highlander flipped after ramping up the retaining wall near the entrance of Southside Deli Mart in Fort Thomas.

The one-car accident ended with the car on it's top, spinning around several times before coming to a stop.

An 86-year Fort Thomas man who was driving had a laceration on his face and was taken to St. Elizabeth Fort Thomas for a medical evaluation. According to witnesses on scene, he was lucid and talking with police.

Officer Nick Hoffman said that after an investigation, he did not believe that drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash.

The vehicle was towed from the scene and cleaned up within an hour.

Jami Anna, who owns an insurance agency across the street from the crash, said that she was on the phone with a client when the crash occurred.

"I just heard this loud crash and then saw the car on its top," she said. "Both airbags were deployed and two men who were walking near the site helped him out of the passenger side door."


Fort Thomas Matters will update this story.

  1. 86 years old, bless his heart, he may have pushed the gas instead of the brake! Happy he is ok except for laceration and hope he recovers. Thankfully, no one else was injured.

  2. Time to hang up the keys if you're pressuring the gas instead of the brake
