(Boone County) A vehicle collision on southbound Dixie Highway, late Tuesday, caused the driver to be sent to University Hospital.  

Investigators say Michael Bowmer, 24, of Florence, KY was driving a 2003 Chevorlet Tahoe when he failed to go around a left curve.  Bowmer exited the roadway and collided with two utility poles, splitting one in half causing the live wires to fall across his vehicle.

First responders had to wait for the power to be turned off to the wires of the Tahoe before they removed Bowmer.  He was then flown by Air Care to the hospital. 

The condition of Bowmer is unknown and the collision is still being investigated by the Boone County Sheriff’s Office.
