Columbia Man Hurt in Moped Accident

A Columbia man was seriously hurt in an accident on westbound Highway 54 in Miller County around 11 Saturday night. The State Highway Patrol says 47-year-old Jeremiah Adams was on a moped with inadequate lighting, when a pickup driven by 34-year-old William Turpin of Kaiser came over a hill crest behind him and hit the back of the moped, knocking it off the road and ejecting Adams. He was flown to Columbia. Turpin was not hurt.
