Two people were killed and two others were sent to the hospital following a crash involving a car and an Amish buggy in Minnesota on Monday.
The fatal rear-end crash occurred at around 8:30 a.m. in Sumner Township near County Road 1. Two people inside the buggy were declared dead along with their horse, ABC 6 News reports.
Two other people were injured in the crash and transported to a nearby hospital, the Fillmore County Sheriff’s Office confirmed. The conditions and identity of the injured remained unclear on Monday.
The crash occurred just a few hundred feet from a road sign that warned of slow-moving vehicles.
The incident comes less than a week after another rear-end collision involving a buggy killed two Amish toddlers and left four others hospitalized in upstate New York.
Last Wednesday, Noah and Mattie Slabaugh were riding with their four young boys along County Route 2, in the Town of Alexandria, New York when they were struck from behind by 26-year-old Charlene Kring.
Kring’s pick-up truck slammed into the Slabaugh’s horse-drawn buggy, killing the couple’s 1-year-old and 3-year-old sons, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said.
The parents and surviving children were also injured in the crash and transported to Upstate University Hospital, in Syracuse. Kring was uninjured.
No charges have been filed against Kring despite police believing the driver might have been distracted when the crash occurred.
Members of the Amish community have said the crash in New York left them shocked and afraid of being out on the roads.
“I don’t …feel safe walking on pavement, I want to go on the grass, the fear is there,” Amanda Weaver told News 7.
Donna Russell, the Slabaugh’s neighbors, said she was heartbroken to learn about the accident, adding that they had given Mattie rides to midwives when their children were born.
“They shouldn’t have to be afraid to travel on our roads, it’s their roads too,” she told the local outlet.
Town of Alexandria officials have since agreed to put up more signs signaling the roads frequented by Amish buggies.
