ALGANSEE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A third child who was in an Amish horse-drawn carriage that was struck by a drunken driver in southern Michigan has died, authorities said Sunday.
Two children, ages 6 and 2, died at the scene of Friday evening’s crash. A 4-year-old later died at a hospital, and another young child and a woman who were in the carriage remained hospitalized with serious injuries, State Trooper Seth Reed told the Detroit Free Press.
We’ve got a fair amount of Amish just across the Kentucky State line which is about 2 miles from my place. I don’t see them every day or even every week, but I do see them often enough to where I’m aware of them and keep an eye out for their carriages, especially on winding roads.
