Adair County Sheriff's Office

On Wednedsay, November 4, 2020, at 10:58amCT, the Adair County Sheriff's Office responded to a 911 call of an injury collision on Acree Road, 9 miles east of Columbia.

Upon arrival, it was found that a single vehicle collision had occurred, and the vehicle was overturned.

Preliminary investigation shows that the driver failed to negotiate a curve in her 2005 Buick and dropped off the roadway. In an attempt to recover the vehicle, she over-corrected and the vehicle left the right side of the roadway and overturned.

The driver and five passengers were all treated at the scene by Adair County EMS and then transferred to TJ Health of Columbia.

The driver, Hailey Melton, 24, of Columbia, was then flown by helicopter to University of Kentucky Hospital.

The collision is being investigated by Chief Deputy Justin Cross. Columbia Adair County Fire Department and Kentucky State Police assisted at scene.
