Saturday night around 11:25 P.M.  Kentucky State Police Trooper Justin Rountree

responded to an injury collision on Old Dixie Rd. approximately 1.5

miles out of   Horse Cave, KY where a 1990 GMC Pickup had struck a tree.  When

Trooper Roundtree arrived at the scene,  the driver,  25 year old Phillip S. Dunagan

of Horse Cave, fled on foot.

 

After a short foot chase  Dunagan was apprehended and  detained until EMS

arrival.  Upon EMS arrival Dunagan was taken to Caverna Memorial

Hospital where he was transferred to University of Louisville hospital

by air methods.

 

A passenger in the vehicle, 26 year old  Brandon K. Adams also of Horse Cave was

taken to Caverna Memorial Hospital due to injuries from the collision

and later transported to UofL.

 

According to Trooper Rountree the vehicle was traveling eastbound on Old Dixie Rd. when for an unknown reason he veered off the roadway and struck a fencerow.  It appears that

upon impact Dunagan, who was unbelted, was partially ejected out of the

windshield.

 

The passenger Brandon K. Adams who was belted remained in the vehicle

during the collision.  After the collision was over  Adams,

exited the vehicle and assisted Dunagan the rest of the way out of

the windshield.

 

Brandon  Adams was cited to court for Disorderly Conduct 2nd and Alcohol

Intoxication.  Charges for Philip Dunagan will be obtained upon his release

from the hospital.

 

As of Sunday evening,  Dunagan was listed in fair condition, while Adams was listed in stable condition with non- life threatening injuries.  Both are patients as U of L hospital.  KSP was assisted on scene by Hart County EMS, Horse Cave Fire Departmentt, and Alvey's Towing.  Trooper Justin

Rountree is working the collision and was assisted by Trooper Jeremy Smith.
