(Elizabethtown, Ky.) -- On October 12, 2009, at 2:55 p.m. Eastern time, Detective Terry Whittaker investigated a two-vehicle collision on KY44, in the city limits of Mt. Washington. Detective Whittaker reported that a 1990 Ford Mustang, operated by Rhonda O. Robinson (a 44-year-old white female from Taylorsville, Ky), was traveling eastbound on KY44, when Ms. Robinson made a left turn into the path of a westbound 1987 Chevrolet truck, operated by Donald L Dunn (a 47-year-old white male from Taylorsville, Ky).
