(Bowling Green, KY) -- On the evening of November 09, 2012 at approximately 11:25 P.M. Kentucky State Police Trooper Justin Rountree responded to an injury collision on Old Dixie Road approximately 1.5 miles out of town of Horse Cave, KY. When Trooper Roundtree arrived on scene he discovered that a 1990 GMC Pickup had struck a tree. When Trooper Roundtree made contact with the driver, Phillip S.
