The Fayette County Sheriff is investigating a one vehicle accident that happened Thursday evening, southeast of Fayette. 20 year old Halvor Johnson of McGregor, was driving westbound on Kornhill road, when, due to the weather conditions, his vehicle slid off the road and into the ditch, striking a utility pole. No one was injured. There was $5,000 damage to the 1990 Dodge truck.
