Buggy, truck crash leaves horse dead

An Amish man escaped serious injury when the buggy he was driving collided with a motor vehicle Thursday, March 24.

According to the accident report released by the Ringgold County sheriff Mike Sobotka, the buggy operated by Levi Miller of Redding was westbound on Highway 169. Another westbound vehicle, a Freightliner straight trucl driven by Caine Poore of Mount Ayr, attempted to pass the buggy. Not seeing the passing vehicle, Miller attempted to turn south onto 160th Avenue into the path of the Poore vehicle.

The Poore vehicle hit the horse, fatally injuring it. Both Poore and Miller were uninjuried in the accident.

Damage to the truck was estimated at $3,000. Damage to the buggy and the value of the horse were estimated at $1,000.

The report stated Poore was at fault because he was attempting to pass at an intersection, but it was noted Miller gave no indication of his intention to turn left across the highway.

The report did not include any mention of citations issued in the accident.
