Children injured in Graves Co. buggy crash released from hospital

GRAVES CO., KY (WAVE) - Four children have been released from the hospital after they were seriously injured when their horse-drawn buggy was hit by a pickup truck on Friday.

WLEX-TV, the NBC affiliate in Lexington, reported the Amish buggy was hit just before 5:30 Friday night on Kentucky 58 West in Graves County.

Moses Yoder, 5, was killed on impact. The children's mother who was driving the buggy, Lena Yoder, 28, remains hospitalized in critical condition.

One of the family's two horses had to be euthanized. The other horse is being treated for injuries.

The pickup driver told police he didn't see the buggy because the sun was in his eyes. Deputies say no charges are expected to be filed.
