Amish buggy sought in Pennsylvania hit-and-run
CBS ^ | 03-18-2014 | Staff

Posted on 03/18/2014 8:56:31 AM PDT by Red Badger

NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. -- State police are searching for an unlikely suspect in a western Pennsylvania hit-and-run accident: the driver of an Amish buggy.

Troopers from the Mercer barracks say the buggy twice hit a passenger vehicle at a crossroads on Route 158 in Wilmington Township, about 6 p.m. Sunday.

The buggy then left the scene and its driver has yet to be identified.

Police say the victim is a woman who owns a Honda CRV, a crossover vehicle that was struck on its left side.

Nobody was hurt in the crash.

In other reports the suspect had a funny looking beard and an aversion to electricity.

What’s the plate number on the bugger?

I’ll be sure to be on the lookout when traveling...

...say the buggy twice hit a passenger vehicle at a crossroads...

So...he backed up and had another go?...
The first impact wasn't up to specification, i guess.

Anyone watch that “amish mafia” show on TV? it’s kinda freaky! with their strange language and all

It is like english, only pronouncing words differently- like the word ‘live’ [as in “this is how we live”] is pronounced “leeveh”

An old Amishman from near Kalona once asked me, “Why did God put Mennonites on the earth?”
His answer was, “To give the Amishman a ride to work.”

Hit and run in a horse and buggy? I don’t think they are going to get very far with the buggy driver’s insurance company. They didn’t think to just follow the buggy home? I don’t suppose there was a “high speed chase” involved was there?

Try finding a replacement cord for the pull-start models.

Impossible.

The point is , How do they KNOW it was an Amish buggy?
Profiling?
What if it was a MUSLIM buggy?
What if it was a Presbyterian or Lutheran?
Maybe it was a Catholic celebrating St. Patrick’s Day..........

For all we know the buggy might have been buggyjacked by some aspiring rapper!

Yep. I am guessing there is more to the story than what we're seeing here. The woman in the CRV might have been the actual perp and clipped the buggy. The damage on the LEFT (driver's) side is especially suspicious.

The buggy tried to pass her? More likely, she came to a place in the road with a wide sport or shoulder and tried to pass the buggy because it didn't move over soon enough to suit her.

The Amish have a well-known aversion to getting involved with the law, so if the damage to the buggy was nominal, it is much easier just to fit it yourself and forget it. However, the woman has to explain something to her insurance company.

The buggy then left the scene and its driver has yet to be identified... Little known to most people is.. the worker (usually a man) uses the buggy to go to work and gets out and the horse goes back to the barn so the wife can use it for the rest of the day. At a specific time, the horse pulls the buggy back to the workplace where the man is. Once the man gets home, he unharnesses the horse until the next day so the horse can get some rest. Nice Horsie.

Don't you think that if she tried to pass and clipped the buggy while passing the damage would be on the right (passenger's) side?

Yes it just disappeared with no communication. It may be hidden in a barn somewhere. The last know path was down a trail. Must look for debris..................

My daughter went to school in New Wilmington. Said the Amish boys liked to crash the frat parties. She liked to crash them also, except that she was with campus security, looking to bust under-age drinkers.

Of course. But to have damage on the left side, either she had to try passing the buggy on her left side (right of the buggy) or the buggy was passing her on the left side. Which do you think more likely?
