Two Injured in Fayette County Rollover

Two people were injured in a rollover in Fayette County this morning.

The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office says it happened just south of 170th Street on R Avenue south of Hawkeye around 8 am.

A car driven by 23-year old Tanner Grover of Independence rolled a couple times before coming to rest on its top.

Authorities say Grover was able to free himself from the wreckage and pulled his passenger, a 17-year old girl, from the car too.

Both were injured and transported to Palmer Hospital in West Union.

The Sheriff’s Office says an investigation at the scene led deputies to believe Grover may have been impaired. The investigation continues and charges are pending.
