Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It turns out the sudden death of the Kentucky Opera general director wasn't caused by a car crash.

David Roth was found dead in his car Sunday night.

The medical examiner says he actually had a heart attack, which caused him to drive into a ditch, then hit a tree head-on.

Roth had been general director of the Kentucky Opera for nine years.

His family is planning a memorial.
