The driver of the Kia, identified as 28-year-old Ashley Rose, was taken to Williamson Medical Center for neck pain.

Officials say Rose is facing charges for failing to yield the right of way.

News 2 interviewed Sgt. Kennedy last year after he saved a dog’s life by performing CPR after it became tangled in its own leash.

He has been with the Spring Hill Police Department since 2004.
