ACSO: Woman airlifted after ATV accident

By Sheriff Josh Brockman
Adair County Sheriff's Office

On Saturday, July 4, 2020, at 7:12pmCT, Adair County Sheriff's Deputy Chandler Staten responded to an ATV collision on Chestnut Grove Road, 15 miles south of Columbia.

Preliminary investigation indicates that Amanda Walker, 40, of Charleston, South Carolina, was operating an ATV with a 10 year old juvenile male child. She lost control of the ATV, running it off a small bridge abatement. Both Walker and the juvenile were treated on scene by Adair EMS and Breeding Fire Department before being transported to TJ Health Columbia by EMS.

Walker was loaded from the parking lot straight into a waiting helicopter, where she was airlifted to University of Louisville Hospital.

The juvenile was treated and later released to family from TJ Health Columbia. Alcohol is believed to be a contributing factor, and charges will be pending test results. The Adair County Sheriff's Office is continuing the investigation.
