An accident within the Fayette City Limits on July 2 at approximately 4:24 p.m. caused multiple injuries to local residents. The accident occurred on Highway 18, approximately one mile west of Fayette. A 2011 Honda Ridgeline, driven by John Brasher of Fayette, was struck in the rear by a 2007 Chevrolet Colorado, driven by Leroy Dale Simmons of Fayette. The collision destroyed the back portion of the double-cab Ridgeline, and caused the Chevrolet Colorado to cross the four-lane highway and exit the road on the opposite side. The impact of the accident caused the side airbags of the Honda Ridgeline to deploy, and a small fire on the Colorado had to be extinguished by the Fayette Fire Department.
