GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

Graves County deputies responded to the 2000 block of State Route 944 after receiving a report of a collision involving an Amish buggy and a vehicle on Sunday, August 7, according to Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon.

Upon arrival, deputies learned that a 17-year-old juvenile was driving a 2008 Nissan Sentra westbound along St. Rt. 944. The juvenile said that as he topped the hill, he observed an Amish buggy, also traveling west. He said that he attempted to swerve around the buggy, but the passenger side front fender of the vehicle struck the side of the buggy.

The juvenile lost control of his car and left the road, running off into a ditch. The Amish buggy went off the road into the front yard of a home. The buggy then struck a tree causing a 7-year-old to fall out of the buggy. 

Mayfield/Graves County EMS arrived and checked out all parties involved. The 7-year-old had bruising on his left foot with some swelling. The boy's parents, Noah Slabaugh and Delilah Slabaugh, declined to have him transported to the hospital.

The other five children that had been in the buggy were not injured.

The Graves County Sheriff's Office were assisted by the Wingo Volunteer Fire Department, Mayfield/Graves County EMS and the Kentucky State Police.
