On Saturday May 19, 2018, the Adair County Sheriffs Office responded to a single vehicle accident approximately 10 miles east of Columbia on Russell Springs Road. The accident occurred when 36 year old Nicholas Kerns was traveling East in his 2003 ford pickup. The Kerns vehicle crossed the center line, traveled through the West bound lane and then crossed a residential yard, going airborne coming to rest in the front yard of a second residence. Kerns was treated on the scene by Adair county Ems and transported to T.J. Health of Columbia for injuries sustained, and later flown to University of Louisville hospital for treatment. Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the accident. Deputy Brandon Hitch from the Adair County Sheriffs Office is the investigating officer.
