After several attempts of trying to move it, he called for a tow truck. When the tow truck arrived 8 minutes later, the driver found Sergeant Phillips suffering from cardiac arrest inside the patrol car. He was transported to Annie Jeffrey Memorial County Health Center where he died a short time later.
