CERULEAN, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky State Police say one person has been injured when a car struck a horse drawn buggy near Hopkinsville in western Kentucky.

Spokesman Chris King says an ambulance took 14-year-old Amos Stolzfus to Jennie Stuart Medical Center in Hopkinsville on Sunday morning for treatment of several injuries.

King says that 23-year-old Branden McGhee drove his 2000 Suzuki Esteem south on KY 91 at about 8:58 a.m. when a vehicle ahead of him suddenly passed the buggy driven by 60-year-old John Stolzfus near Cerulean.

King says McGhee could not stop before striking the rear of the buggy.

Two other passengers in the buggy, 46-year-old Anna Stolzfus, and 13-year-old David Stolzfus, were not injured.

McGhee was not wearing a seatbelt and was not injured in the collision.
