On Monday, February 21, 2022, at 5:25pm, Adair County 911 received a report of a rollover collision in the Millerfield community, 14 miles east of Columbia.

Upon arrival, Sheriff's Deputy Kenny Perkins found that Brandon Mathis, 38, of Russell Springs, was operating a 2004 Buick on KY 76 when he dropped off the shoulder of the road. The vehicle overturned multiple times before coming to rest in an adjacent field.

A passenger in vehicle, Tashina Mathis, age 37, also of Russell Springs, was partially ejected. She had not been using a seatbelt. She was treated on the scene by Adair County EMS, and then airlifted via helicopter to University of Louisville for treatment of injuries.

The operator was cited for not having a valid operators license, and was treated and released at TJ Health Columbia.

Deputy Perkins was assisted at Scene by Columbia Adair County Volunteer Fire Department. The Adair County Sheriff's Office is continuing the investigation.
