STANFORD — A Lincoln County man and his daughter were airlifted with unknown injuries after a car flipped upside down north of Stanford Sunday night.
Doug Rayborn was driving his vehicle east on U.S. 150 around 6:45 p.m. when the wreck 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, who is from the Crab Orchard area, and his 16-year-old daughter both had to be extricated from the vehicle. The extent of their injuries was unknown at the scene Sunday night, but Kirkpatrick said both of them were conscious following the wreck.
Rayborn and his daughter were airlifted to the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center in separate air-evacuation helicopters.
Rayborn was listed in fair condition at the UK hospital Monday morning.
Emergency responders were on the scene Sunday night until 8:45 p.m., directing traffic as the inverted car was loaded onto a flatbed tow truck.
