By Officer Adam Cravens, PIO
Columbia Police Department

The Columbia Police Department responded to a three car collision with injury on Sunday, October 24, at the North 55 and Betty's OK Country Cooking restaurant intersection.

The accident occurred when Ricky Burton of Columbia was northbound in a 2012 Dodge Caravan. He attempted a U-Turn, making contact with two vehicles, one southbound towards Columbia and another vehicle waiting to turn onto Highway 55 from Betty's.

The second and third vehicles were a 2003 Ford Focus occupied by three parties and a 2021 Nissan Rogue occupied by two parties, respectively.

All occupants of the Ford Focus were taken initially to TJ Health Columbia, with one 54-year-old female later transfered to UofL. Parties in the Nissan Rogue did not require medical attention on the scene.

Officer Joey Keith investigated the collision. He was assisted on scene by other Officers with CPD as well as the Adair County Sheriff's Office, Adair County EMS, and the Columbia/Adair County Fire Department.
