More details have been released involving a crash on I-65 Monday. Just after 3 p.m. Troopers with Kentucky State Police Post 3, Bowling Green responded to an injury collision at the 9 mile marker of Interstate 165 in Warren County.

Preliminary investigation indicated that 53-year-old Anthony Rutledge of Henderson was driving a 1999 Ford F-350 with a gooseneck trailer northbound on I-165. Officials said the front driver side tire of Rutledge’s vehicle failed, causing it to lose control and cross the median.
