Adair man injured in construction accident


An Adair County man was critically injured in a work-related accident in Henderson County.

Troy Ford, 41, of Columbia, was working along a ditch line on Monday when a 2,000-pound pipe broke loose. Ford was struck in the head and knocked into another piece of pipe.

Ford was airlifted to Evansville, Ind. where he is in critical condition. He is being treated for brain injuries and other possible internal injuries.

Ford was working on a pipeline project for Scott and Ritter, a Bowling Green construction company.

For anyone who wishes to donate to the Ford family, donations can be dropped off at the Adair County judge executive’s office in the annex building on the public square.
