Adair County Crash
Kentucky State Police are investigating a fatal collision that occurred recently in Columbia. The incident involved two vehicles and occurred around 11 am on Bridgewater Rd., in Adair County.
According to the initial investigation, Jessica Wilkinson, 28, of Columbia, was driving a 2019 Chrysler Van northbound on Bridgewater Rd. She crossed into the southbound lane where her vehicle collided head on with a 2003 Ford Mustang.
The driver of the Mustang was a 16-year-old from Columbia. Investigators believe it was impossible for the teen to avoid the crash because of the position of the vehicles on the hillcrest.
Wilkinson, another passenger in the vehicle, Derek Wilkson, and a three-year-old passenger received minor injuries.
The Mustang’s driver and another juvenile passenger were taken to a nearby hospital. A third juvenile in the backseat was pronounced dead at the scene.
The collision continues to be investigated Kentucky state law enforcement officials including Adair County Sheriff Department, Adair County Rescue Squad, Adair County Fire and EMS.
