ACSO: One airlifted after White Oak collision

By Sheriff Josh Brockman
Adair County Sheriff's Office

An Indiana man was airlifted to University of Kentucky Hospital on Friday, November 27, 2020, after being involved in a two-vehicle collision.

The Adair County Sheriff's Office was dispatched to a reported collision approximately 10.9 miles East of Columbia on White Oak Church Road.

After preliminary investigation, Deputy Derek Padgett found that Dylan Plumm, of Indiana, and a passenger Morgan Tungate, 22, of Russell Springs, were traveling West on a Honda motorcycle in the area of Ivy Lane/White Oak Church Road. The accident occurred when they crested a hill and collided with a Dodge Journey operated by Brian Grider, 29, of Russell Springs, who was traveling East.

The point of impact indicates the vehicles sideswiped each other.

Plumm was airlifted from scene to University of Kentucky Hospital, and Tungate was transported by Adair County EMS to TJ Health Columbia. Grider was released on scene.

The Columbia Adair County Fire Department assisted on scene with AirEvac. Deputy Derek Padgett continues the investigation.
