Times Journal Reporter

A Saturday afternoon wreck on Russell Creek Hill in Adair County seriously injured a Russell County couple as well as Columbia man, according to the Kentucky State Police.

The two-vehicle collision occurred 5:35 p.m. Ky. 80 when Merlin Huff, 45, of Columbia was driving a 2004 blue Dodge pickup westbound when he dropped of the right shoulder of the road, negotiated out of a ditch and struck a 2006 red Dodge pickup being driven by Teddy Cain, 45, of Russell Springs, in the rear.

Cain's vehicle left the side of the road and struck a rock ledge before finally coming to a rest in the westbound lane.

Huff was not belted and was transported by EMS to the Russell County Hospital and then transported to the University of Kentucky Hospital for treatment.

Teddy Cain and his wife, Vickie Cain,  45, of Russell Springs were both belted and transported to Westlake Regional Hospital in Columbia and then to the University of Louisville Hospital where they remained as of early this week.  

Trooper Bradly Stotts was assisted at the scene by Trooper Kenny Perkins, Adair County Sheriff's Deputy Aaron Rainwater, Adair and Russell County fire and EMS.

Then another two-vehicle injury collision occurred on Saturday at 3:26 p.m. on Ky. 210, approximately five miles west of Campbellsville.

A 1997 Nissan pickup being driven by Charles Cape, 60, of Jamestown was traveling westbound on Ky. 210 and a 2006 Lincoln being driven by Andy Olson, 28, of Greensburg, was traveling westbound on Ky. 210 and was attempting to turn into a private drive when his vehicle was struck from behind by Cape’s vehicle.  

A passenger in the Olson vehicle, Amanda Olson, 27, of Greensburg, was taken to Taylor Regional Hospital by a private vehicle.  Olson and a child, Ayden Olson, 3, of Greensburg were not injured.  Cape was also not injured. All parties were wearing seat belts, according to state police. Trooper Clint Walker investigated that accident.
