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.
