Sunday morning, March 12, 2017, one would hardly have realized that this peaceful scene was the site of a tragedy, on the Saturday before when viewed from Thompson-Harvey Road, above, except for police scene yellow tape on the Greensburg Street frontage, left in the photo. A 45-year-old Adair County woman, Alesha Bryant Morrison, was pronounced dead at the scene here on Saturday, March 11, 2017. According to the Kentucky State Police, 52-year-old Samuel Edwards, of Columbia, was operating a northbound 2002 KIA on KY 61 when he lost control of the vehicle and left the shoulder of the roadway, and, the report said, "The vehicle then began to flip, striking the roadway multiple times before striking a tree and coming to final rest in a pond. Edwards and a passenger, 45-year-old Alesha Morrison, of Columbia, were ejected from the vehicle. Morrison was pronounced dead at the scene by the Adair County Coroner. Edwards was airlifted to UK Medical Center and is listed in stable condition. The investigation is ongoing." (KSP story by TFC Billy Gregory - - Ed Waggener
