ACSO: Alcohol may be factor in weekend accident

By Sheriff Josh Brockman
Adair County Sheriff's Office

On Saturday, February 6, 2021, at 01:53amCT Adair County 911 received a call from a motorist advising of a single vehicle collision on KY 55 south approximately 4 miles out.

K-9 Deputy Josh Durbin and Deputy Derek Padgett were dispatched, and, upon arrival, located a pickup truck that had left the road and overturned.

Preliminary investigation shows that Nikolas Heino of Texas was operating a 2008 Ford truck traveling toward Columbia on KY 55 South. Heino lost control of his vehicle, leaving the roadway and overturning on the right side of highway.

Heino and his passenger, Laura Holland, were treated on scene by Adair County EMS and then transferred to TJ Health Columbia. Heino was later transferred out to University of Louisville Hospital.

Deputy Durbin is continuing the investigation. Criminal charges are pending, as alcohol is believed to be a contributing factor.

The Sheriffs Office was assisted on scene by Adair County EMS and the Columbia Adair County Fire Department.
