Columbia Police Department officers Josh Brockman and Drew Conn were dispatched to a single vehicle collision in the 400 block of Dillon Street, Columbia, KY, at 11:03pmCT, on Friday night, May 19, 2017.
The accident occurred when 18 year old Dillion Graves of Columbia, KY, was traveling north on Dillon Street when he lost control of his 2006 Pontiac.
Preliminary investigation indicates vehicle dropped off right shoulder of roadway. The operator was able to get vehicle back up on roadway but overcorrected and left the roadway on right side again.
The vehicle took out a long section of fence before coming to a stop when it struck a large utility pole.
Dillion Graves and his passenger, a 17 year old juvenile, were treated on scene and transported to TJ Health/Columbia by Adair County EMS.
The juvenile was then flown to the University of Louisville by PHI.
The accident is being investigated by Ofc. Josh Brockman and excessive speed and alcohol are believed to be contributing factors in the collision. Charges are pending on the operator at this time.
Columbia Police were assisted by Adair County EMS and Columbia Adair County Fire Department
