Fillmore County, Minnesota: 2 children killed and 2 injured in Amish buggy crash


An SUV collided with a two-wheeled horse-drawn carriage Monday in Fillmore County in southern Minnesota, a sheriff said.


An SUV collided with a two-wheeled horse-drawn Amish buggy in southern Minnesota on Monday morning, killing two children and injuring two others, authorities said.

The buggy and SUV were headed in the same direction when the crash happened shortly before 8:25 a.m. in Fillmore County on County Road 1, Sheriff John DeGeorge said in a news release.

The four children in the buggy were brother and sister from rural Stewartville, a few miles to the northwest, DeGeorge said.

7-year-old Wilma Miller and 11-year-old Irma Miller died as a result of the accident. Allen Miller, 9, and Rose Miller, 13, were taken to the hospital with injuries, DeGeorge said.

He told CNN on Tuesday that DeGeorge was not aware of the conditions of the injured children.

The crash remained under investigation Tuesday and no arrests had been made, the news release said.

The crash is at least the second in which children riding in an Amish buggy have died as a result of a crash in the US in the past week. On September 20, a pickup truck rear-ended an Amish buggy in Alexandria, New York, killing a 1- and 3-year-old child, authorities said.
