An accident on Friday afternoon in Fayette County led to a St. Elmo woman being taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Illinois State Police reports indicate a vehicle driven by 18 year old Baylee Scholes of St. Elmo was traveling south on Illinois Route 128. Another vehicle (the driver is no known) was observed traveling north on Rt. 128 in the middle of the roadway. Scholes was able to swerve off the roadway to the right, however the other vehicle continues to serve into the southbound lane where it sideswiped Scholes’ vehicle. After the collision, the other vehicle continued northbound on Rt. 128 accelerating to a high rate of speed. Scholes was transported to St. Anthony Hospital in Effingham by her parents with minor injuries.
