SIMPSON COUNTY, KY (WAVE) – An Amish woman was killed in Simpson County Thursday night when a car hit the buggy in which she was riding. 

The Simpson County Sheriff's Office said the driver of the car rounded a curve on Roark Road and hit the buggy.

Investigators said Leah Kraley, 68, died at the scene. Her husband, Eric Kraley, 71, was listed as stable Friday night.

"This is really close to Allen County," said Sheriff Chris Cline, "so we have a lot of horse and buggies and the Amish from over there that's traveling through. They come and sell products, so they go to town and different things."

The horse pulling the buggy also was injured.

The sheriff does not believe speed played a role in the crash.
