By Sheriff Josh Brockman
Adair County Sheriff's Office

On Thursday, July 21, 2022, at approximately 8:21pmCT, The Adair County Sheriff's Office responded to a vehicle vs. motorcycle accident on Montpelier Road just before the Russell County line.

Preliminary investigation indicates that Patrick Loy, 32, of Columbia, along with passenger Cara Pemberton, 34, of Russell Springs, was traveling towards Russell County on a 2007 Harley Davidson motorcycle.

Whitney Coe, 30, of Columbia, was traveling from Russell County toward Columbia on Montpelier Road in a 2014 Ford Edge. Loy attempted a left hand turn with his motorcycle onto Old Montpelier Road. As Coe's vehicle neared the rise, she was unable to avoid the motorcycle that was in her lane making the turn, resulting in a head-on collision.

Both the operator and passenger of the motorcycle were treated on the scene by Adair County EMS for injuries. Loy was transported to T.J. Health Columbia and then airlifted to the University of Louisville Hospital. The passenger was transported by private means to Russell County Hospital. Coe was uninjured.

Deputy Chandler Staten is continuing the investigation. He was assisted on scene by Chief Deputy Brandon Hitch, the Columbia-Adair County Fire Department, and Adair County EMS.
