ACSO: Adair Man dies as result of single vehicle collision

By Sheriff Josh Brockman
Adair County Sheriff's Office

On Sunday, July 5, 2020, 6:35pmCT, the Adair County Sheriff's Office received a call from Adair 911 of a single vehicle collision 9 miles east of Columbia on KY 206.

Upon arrival at the scene, Deputy Josh Durbin found that a vehicle had struck a guardrail and overturned, with the operator pinned underneath.

Preliminary investigation shows that Bobby Roberts, 44, of Adair County, was operating a 1995 Chevrolet S-10 truck east on liberty Road when he failed to negotiate a left hand curve.

The vehicle began to skid sideways down the road before striking a guardrail. The impact caused the vehicle to start flipping multiple times, leaving the driver pinned underneath the vehicle.

Roberts was extricated from the vehicle by mechanical means by the Columbia-Adair County Fire Department. Roberts was pronounced deceased by Adair County EMS Paramedics, and Coroner Todd Akin was notified.

Deputy Josh Durbin is investigating the collision and was assisted by Kentucky State Police. Our prayers and thoughts are with the Roberts family.
