An Adair County woman has died after an accident on Thursday, October 5, 2023 on the Louie B. Nunn Cumberland Parkway in Adair County.
Adair County Sheriff Josh Brockman tells 99.9 The Big Dawg that Adair County 911 received multiple calls of a vehicle rollover accident around the 48 mile marker of the LBN Parkway. Deputies Chandler Staten and Josh Durbin arrived on scene to find the operator Amy McFall, age 24 of Columbia (a native of Campbellsville), had been ejected and was partially pinned under the vehicle. A 2-year-old male juvenile was also located inside the vehicle restrained in a car seat.
Deputies, along with the first initial responders and passing motorists who had stopped, were able to pick up the side of the vehicle enough to free McFall from underneath the auto and EMS began life-saving measures.
McFall was transported to TJ Health Columbia and then airlifted to the UK Hospital in Lexington. The child, who was properly restrained in a child restraint seat, was treated and released with just a minor scratch on his forehead.
The preliminary investigation shows that McFall was traveling west on the Parkway in a white 2002 Chevrolet Suburban when she lost control of the vehicle and entered the grass median between the east and west lanes of travel. McFall's vehicle then slid back onto the roadway and went into a rollover, resulting in the operator being ejected.
K-9 Deputy Chandler Staten is leading the accident investigation and was assisted by Deputy Josh Durbin and Sheriff Josh Brockman.
In addition to the ACSO, other agencies responding to the scene were Adair EMS, Adair County 911, Adair County Emergency Management, Columbia Police Department, Columbia-Adair County Fire Department and Kentucky State Police.
The Adair County Sheriff’s Office extends its prayers and sympathy to the family of Amy McFall. May God give you strength in these coming days as you deal with the loss of your loved one.
