Edward Fuller was traveling northbound and struck the Patel's vehicle, pushing him several feet into a guardrail. The Fuller's vehicle entered the median and overturned. Several gallons of fuel spilled when Fuller overturned. The environmental protection agency out of Bowling Green was called and handled the clean up.
