The Fayette County Sheriff is investigating a couple of recent traffic accidents.
On Saturday (Sept. 9) at about 3:45pm, the sheriff was called to a rollover accident on "Y" Avenue near Sumner. A car driven by 37 year old Amy Stolfus of Sumner, went out of control, entered the ditch, where it reached a culvert, then rolled, ending up on the passenger side.
Stolfus was taken to the Sumner hospital with significant injuries; her 2006 Ford Taurus was totaled. Charges are pending.
Just before 3pm Sunday (Sept. 10), officers were called to Kornhill and Grannis Roads, southeast of Fayette, for a rollover accident. 49 year old Kimberly Churbuck of Fayette lost control of her vehicle on Kornhill Road; the car entered a ditch, traveled across Grannis Road, then rolled, finally stopping when it hit a utility pole.
Churbuck was extricated from the vehicle and taken to the West Union hospital, to be treated for minor injuries.
And just after 6pm Saturday, the sheriff got a report of a car/deer accident on Highway 3, south of Arlington. 74 year old Larry Rohlena of Anamosa was driving east when a deer entered the roadway and the two collided. Rohlena was not hurt, but there was $3,000 damage to his 2012 Toyota Camry.
