On 8-4-2017 Columbia Police Department was dispatched to the 2000 block of Campbellsville Road, Columbia, KY, to a reported two vehicle collision with injuries.
Preliminary investigation indicates Christopher Cook, 38, of Taylor County was traveling south on KY 55 in a 1998 Grand Jeep Cherokee when he struck a 2003 Saturn operated by 57 year old Randell Wheat of Adair County in the rear of vehicle.
Wheat was in traffic that had slowed for a farm implement on the roadway. Cook failed to see traffic had slowed and was unable to slow or stop his vehicle.
The collision sent the 2003 Saturn off the roadway overturning once before it came to rest.
Wheat was treated on scene by Adair County EMS and transported to TJ Health of Columbia. Wheat was then flown by PHI Air Medical services to the University of Kentucky for Head Trauma related injuries.
The collision is being investigated by CPD Officer Josh Brockman, who was assisted by Ofc John Dial, Deputy Justin Cross and Trooper Chase Willis.
Cell phone usage is believed to be a contributing factor in the collision and Cook, who was not injured, was charged for operating a vehicle on a expired license and no insurance.
Note: Charges are not a finding of guilt. An individual charged by law enforcement is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty at some later criminal proceeding.
