A 25-year-old man died in a crash in Adair County Friday night.

Jon C. Sneed, 25, of Columbia, was driving east on Ky. 80 seven and a half miles west of Columbia when his vehicle dropped off the right shoulder at 10:29 p.m., state police said.

Sneed overcorrected, and his vehicle crossed into the westbound lane and then went back into the eastbound lane before running off the road. The vehicle overturned and Sneed, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown out, state police said.

He was taken to Westlake Regional Hospital in Columbia, where he was pronounced dead by Adair County Coroner Rick Wilson.
