TOMPKINSVILLE, KY (Thu 21 Jul 2016) Kentucky State Police investigated a three vehicle injury collision involving a Commercial Motor Vehicle and two passenger vehicles on North Main Street inside of Tompkinsville today at 11:15amCT.

Preliminary investigations indicate that 55 year-old Remus Bowe of Tompkinsville was operating a 1995 Dodge van north on North Main Street.
