Drunk driving isn’t a phenomenon that only affects those of us with access to motorized vehicles and that fact was highlighted this past weekend when four young Amish adults consumed large amounts of alcohol and then crashed their horse drawn buggy into the side of a police car.
Police arrived at the scene of a party that was reported by local residents which point the Amish teenagers attempted to flee the scene, smashing one buggy into the patrol car.
The crash occurred in Chautauqua County, New York on Sunday night at 7:15pm in the rural town of Sherman.
Deputies say the teens were parked along a country road and were drinking inside of several Amish buggies when they arrived on the scene.
While attempting to flee the scene of the party one of the Amish buggy’s quickly switched lanes and smashed into the police car, causing the buggy to flip onto its side while at the same time causing minor injury to one of the passengers.
While not the fastest vehicles on the road police officers say the accident allowed several other amish buggies to flee the scene of the crime.
Personally I would be more scared about horses heading directly at my car than another vehicle. Are you surprised to learn about the teen Amish party gone wrong?
