Sheriff Doug Rader tells KYTV that 69-year-old John Read was flown to an unspecified Springfield hospital after the crash about 5:30 p.m. Friday roughly 10 miles southeast of Cape Fair.
Read's medical status and the cause of the crash were not immediately clear Saturday.
Read is Stone County's former surveyor.
