On Saturday, October 9, 2021 Adair County Deputy Tracy McCarol was dispatched to a single vehicle collision 4 miles east of Columbia on KY 80. The preliminary investigation shows that the operator, 19-year-old Kenneth Montgomery of Jamestown, KY was operating a 2007 Ford passenger car traveling west, when he dropped off the shoulder of the roadway. Montgomery lost control of the auto and overcorrected with the vehicle rolling over multiple times.
Montgomery and two passengers: 17-year-old Alex Gaskins and 17-year-old Justin Cox, were transported to TJ Health Columbia by Adair EMS for treatment of their injuries.
The Adair County Sheriffs Office is continuing the investigation.
