Fog that blanketed the area late Saturday night and early Sunday morning was a contributing cause to a vehicle crash. Water Valley Police Chief Mike King reported that Becky Rucker was injured when a car driven by Rufus Folson failed to stop at the intersection of South Main Street and Frostland Drive.

The vehicle was headed eastbound on Frostland at 1:53 a.m. Sunday, crossed South Main and struck a fence and highway directional sign. Folson told police on the scene that he was traveling no more than 30 miles an hour because of the fog and didn’t see the stop sign.
