Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
The Edmonson County Sheriff's Office is seeking information on a hit and run accident that occurred Saturday night which involved an Amish buggy.
The Sheriff's Office reported that around 8:50 pm on Saturday, October 13th, a white pickup truck that was believed to be a Ford Ranger, struck a horse-drawn wagon on 259N. The Sheriff's Office said that according to the wagon's occupants, the operator of the truck stopped and asked occupants Mr. Nathan Correll, 20, of Brownsville, and Micah Geiser, 21, also of Brownsville, if they were okay. According to officials, when the driver of the pickup confirmed they weren't injured, he fled the scene.
"Everyone knows we have had an increase in horse-drawn vehicles in the Brownsville area, and we must share the road with them,' said Sheriff Shane Doyle. "Please be careful and watch for these vehicles. Someone could have been killed in this situation, but I believe a Higher power had His hand in this one."
Anyone with info regarding the white truck is urged to call the Sheriff's office and speak with Deputy Phillips who is investigating.
