I was extremely busy this weekend and didn’t realize until I saw this today that I hadn’t seen any local news since 4:30am Friday. What a tragedy for the family and the community.

That is very sad,  I really don't understand drinking and driving the penalties just need to be more severe with no leeway for judges

you drink and drive, you should never drive again and no way to register a vehicle.

Hopefully he will never again have a need for a driver’s license.

GB would probably have an idea but Amish buggies are pretty fragile  vehicles. I would think that someone would have been traveling at a very high rate of speed to cause that much damage to the front end of the pick up

Yes,  VERY fragile vehicles. I grew up in up state Indiana. 48% Amish. They were absolutely everywhere growing up. Everywhere! A lot of my friends growing up were Amish. They have no chance when it comes to any 4 wheel vehicle with a motor. Very tragic. Heard about every once and a while growing up. The Damage is mostly from the horse on the front. Sadly, everything else is like hitting a cardboard box. It didnt happen too often 40 + years ago. Very very sad.

A real tragedy.  You can't explain it - other than criminal behavior and being at the wrong place at the wrong time.

We all suffer from occurrences like this one.

Really not that much speed there from the crush on the bumper probably one of the wheels on the buggy I would say 40 to 45 but when you look at the type of road that would be to fast.

sadly in Arkansas he would serve less than a year, not near enough.  Most jurors and judges look at a DWI crash and think that could be me really hard to get a strong conviction on those cases. Sad so sad

Used to go to these often back in my public service days. Indiana was 21 to drink and Ohio was 18. Hicksville was just across the state line and had a club for 18 year olds. The road to get there ran right through Amish country.  A lot of tragic accidents. Almost always a drunk driver. A lot of work being 18-20 and taking care of several seriously injured victims while the horse is screaming and the Sheriff has to put him down. The drunk driver almost always was able to walk away with minor injuries. 

Prayers to the families. Too many lives lost senselessly. The driver deserves maximum punishment, but sad he has ruined his life and many others at 21. Parkview is a good hospital. The Regional Medical Center is huge and they are adding on. It is about 10 minutes from me. The helicopter flies over the house regularly.

Any drunk driver that causes death and/or injury should labor the rest of their life to pay the medical bills of the victim(s).

Very sad to hear.

I almost did the same thing when I was in Collage. I was heading home from school for the weekend. It was night time and the road had rolling hills on it. I was doing the speed limit of 55 and crested one of the hills. There was an all black buggy right in front of me with no reflectors, lights, nothing. I swerved hard and just missed it. At the time in OH, buggies had to have at least a reflective slow moving triangle. Most buggies had that along with flashing red lights. I got real lucky on that one.

So sad to here this.  We had an extremely close call near turkey run In indiana. couple years back On a right hand down hill curve an oncoming fifth wheel camper crossed partially into my lane and as our mirrors hit and exploded we were passing a un marked Amish buggy and I have no idea how we missed them. Still makes me sick to  remember that feeling and how lucky we all were.

These are not accidents. What Dan and Bob mentioned are/would be accidents.

If you choose to drink and drive, it is like pointing a gun at someone, pulling trigger, then acting surprised that the gun actually went off.

The charges for "operating while under the influence causing death" should be manslaughter. It is not a lapse in good judgement. It is not just a poor decision. YOU DRINK, YOU DRIVE, YOU PAY. No excuses.

And just think...all these states legalizing weed...it's only a matter of time before we start seeing that as a factor in auto killings (not accidents).

we all have to take care and help the amish, it is our duty and if you drink or take marijuana or drugs, in my opinion you are weak minded and have no rights. we all know what these things do to the human mind, destroy it.
