The operator of the Mustang, a 16 year Juvenile from Columbia, KY was unable to avoid the collision because of the hillcrest.

The operator of the mustang and one other juvenile passenger were transported to T.J. Health in Columbia, KY. A juvenile passenger in the back seat was pronounced deceased by the Adair County Coroner.
