Authorities say an Amish buggy was struck from behind by a pickup truck in Sidney, Ohio, on Friday. The accident killed a woman and critically injured a man and two infants, according to The Associated Press.
The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office said the buggy was properly lit when it was struck around 9 p.m. Friday. A 23-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene. The infants were flown to a Dayton hospital, while the man was taken to a local medical facility before being transferred to a Dayton hospital.
Sheriff Lt. Tim Bender says the four were members of the same family. Their names haven’t been released, the AP reported on Saturday. The driver of the vehicle that struck the buggy on Friday fled on foot after the accident and was arrested a mile from the scene.
