Sadly, I feel like I’m reading/writing the same story every week. Another Amish teen has died in a car-buggy accident, the third in the past several weeks:

A 14-year-old Amish boy died three days after suffering serious injuries when he was thrown from the horse-and-buggy he was riding in along U.S. 11 in Shippensburg on March 3.

Pennsylvania State Police spokeswoman Trooper Megan Ammerman confirmed Tuesday that the boy, who had been flown to Penn State Hershey Medical Center after the accident, sadly succumbed to his injuries on March 6.

A 6-year-old boy who was also flown from the scene with serious injuries is currently recovering, Ammerman said.

The 20-year-old motor vehicle driver struck the buggy from behind, throwing the three passengers from the carriage. An investigation is ongoing.
