On Saturday, September 16th, at approximately 10:45pm, the Adair County Sheriffs Office responded to a single vehicle accident on Bull Run Road. The accident occurred when a 2015 Kia car, being operated by 18 year old James Tyler Watt of Boston, Ky., along with passenger 17-year-old Aaron Hall of Leitchfield, Ky., failed to negotiate a curve when passing Dwight Curry Road on Bull Run Road. The vehicle dropped off the shoulder, striking a tree and traveling up the tree then striking a utility pole. The vehicle came to rest on its top with power lines and a transformer on the vehicle.
Two ambulances from Adair County EMS responded and treated both patients on the scene and transported them to T.J. Health Columbia.
