Columbia driver dies in Columbia Western Parkway collision
By Chief Mark Harris, Columbia Police Department
The Columbia Police Department investigated a fatal collision that occurred Thursday evening, September 3, 2009, at about 4:00pm at the intersection of Hwy 61 South and the Columbia Bypass.
The accident occurred when a 1997 Pontiac being operated by 34 year old James Giles of Columbia, KY, was traveling North on the Columbia 55 Bypass and, according to witnesses, failed to stop at a traffic light at the Hwy 61 South intersection.
The Giles vehicle was then struck in the passenger side by a 1995 GMC tractor trailer car hauler being operated by Paul Standridge, age 44, of Tennessee.
Giles was pronounced dead at the scene by the Adair County Coroners office. No seat belt was in use. Standridge was belted, but was transported to West Lake Regional Hospital by Adair County EMS where he was admitted.
The accident was investigated by Columbia Police Officer Josh Brockman. He was assisted by officer Kevin Atwood and other members of Columbia PD and Kentucky Vehicle Enforcement. The Columbia Adair County Fire Department and the State Highway Department also responded.
