Tpr. Kenny Brown is investigating a collision that occurred today at 6:50 PM CST, 7 miles east of Columbia on KY 206. 49-year-old Stacy Carter, of Columbia, was traveling west on KY 206, operating a 2003 Nissan. Carter lost control of her vehicle, left the eastbound side of the roadway, struck a utility pole and traveled through a fence before stopping. Carter was not belted at the time of the collision and was pronounced dead at the Westlake Regional Hospital by the Adair County Coroner. The investigation is on-going and alcohol is believed to have been a factor.
Editor Sharon Burton was on the scene and will have a full report in Thursday’s edition of the Adair County Community Voice.
