STANFORD — A man and his daughter were airlifted with unknown injuries after a car overturned Sunday night north of Stanford.
Doug Rayborn was driving east on U.S. 150 about 6:45 p.m. when the crash happened just outside Stanford city limits.
Lincoln County Deputy Sheriff Ryan Kirkpatrick said Rayborn’s vehicle traveled out of its lane and dropped off the left shoulder of the road “for an undetermined reason.”
“It went into a 180-degree slide, hitting a culvert, which caused the vehicle to flip onto its roof,” Kirkpatrick said.
Rayborn and his 16-year-old daughter had to be extricated from the vehicle. The extent of their injuries was unknown at the scene Sunday night, but Kirkpatrick said both were conscious following the crash.
Rayborn and his daughter were airlifted to the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center in Lexington in separate helicopters.
Emergency responders were still on the scene an hour and a half after the crash, directing traffic as the car was removed from the roadway.
