In the morning hours of Dec. 23, a passenger car plowed into an Amish horse-drawn buggy driven by Martin Devon Knepp of Montgomery. The collision occurred in front of K & K Industries on County Road 550, North and is a hit and run accident. Knepp’s buggy was destroyed and the horse was left with slight injuries.
Knepp, 18, was driving a horse hitched to a buggy on the side of the road when he was struck by a car, which never stopped. The driver of the vehicle simply kept on going, leaving the scene of the accident. The offending car was last seen heading west.
The buggy is a total loss and Knepp received a number of lacerations to head and face. He was taken by emergency vehicle to Daviess Community Hospital for treatment. After medical attention, he was released.
The Daviess County Sheriff's Department is investigating the hit and run accident.
