The Adair County Sheriff’s Office, along with Adair County EMS and Columbia-Adair County Fire Department, were dispatched to the Coburg community on Hwy. 55 north to a single vehicle collision at 3:13 p.m. on Friday, July 31.
Upon arrival and preliminary investigation, it was found that Virginia Tweedy, 54, of Columbia was operating a 2005 Suzuki SUV traveling south on Hwy. 55 when a heavy rainstorm caused her to hydroplane and lose control of her vehicle.
Tweedy’s vehicle crossed into the northbound lane, into the emergency lane and struck the guardrail.
Her vehicle then crossed back across the highway coming to rest back in the southbound lane.
Tweedy was treated on scene by Adair County EMS and then transported from the scene to Taylor County Regional Hospital.
Deputy Chandler Staten, who was assisted by Sheriff Josh Brockman, is investigating the accident.
