By Sheriff Josh Brockman
Adair County Sheriff's Office

On Wednesday, June 22, 2022 the Adair County Sheriff's Office investigated a two vehicle collision at the intersection of Millerfield Road and Edgar Jessie Road.

It was determined that a 2017 Kia Soul operated by Cara Hadley, of Columbia, was attempting to make a U-turn at Edgar Jessie Road and turned into the path of a 2011 Ford Van, operated by 29 year old Dakota McGowan of Columbia. The van left the roadway and overturned.

McGowan and a passenger, Matthew Chapman, were ejected from the vehicle. Chapman and McGowan were transported to Russell County Hospital by Adair EMS and McGowan was airlifted to University of Kentucky hospital for further treatment.

Hadley and a male child passenger were not injured.

The collision was investigated by Deputy Tracy McCarol. Other responding agencies included the Adair Co. Fire Department.

The Adair County Sheriff's Office is continuing investigation.
