Two adults and five children were ejected from their buggy when it was rear-ended in Ashland County, Ohio on Sunday.

Three of the passengers, the father and two of the children, have serious injuries and were lifeflighted elsewhere, while the mother and remaining children were taken for local treatment. The children range from toddler age to seven years old. Cleveland’s News 5 reports on the crash and the driver, who has a history:

Thankfully now all the victims are in stable condition and expected to recover.

Being aware of the guidelines for driving safely around buggies does little good when someone is impaired. The driver of the motor vehicle has apparently been charged with DUI on at least 7 occasions. The obvious question is why was this person even on the road.
