ACSO: Accidental death of Elk Horn man
By Sheriff Josh Brockman
Adair County Sheriff's Office
On Friday, June 24, 2022, Adair County Sheriff's Deputy Derek Padgett and Deputy Chandler Staten responded 20 miles North to the 5400 block of Speck Ridge Road in Elk Horn, Kentucky, to a call of assistance where a male was trapped under a vehicle.
A preliminary investigation determined William Thomas Brown, 61, of Elk Horn, was at his home working on his 2013 Chevrolet Cruze. It was determined Brown used a Hydraulic Bottle Jack and a piece of wood to lift the vehicle off the ground. The ground in the area of the jack being unlevel caused the bottle jack to be unlevel in lifting the vehicle.
When Brown got under the vehicle, the weight of the vehicle shifted causing the bottle jack to lean. The vehicle then fell, pinning Brown underneath it. William Thomas Brown of Elk Horn was pronounced deceased at the scene.
In addition to Deputies, Adair County Coroner Todd Akin, Adair County EMS, Knifley Volunteer Fire Department, and Campbellsville Taylor County EMS responded to the scene.
