SIDNEY, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio driver accused of hitting an Amish buggy in a crash that killed a woman and critically hurt a man and two young children has been jailed on charges including aggravated vehicular homicide.
Steven Hunter, of Sidney, also is charged with failing to stop after the Friday night crash in Shelby County.
A judge on Monday set Hunter’s bond at $150,000. Hunter’s public defender hasn’t returned a message seeking comment.
Authorities say the buggy was properly lit when it was hit from behind and four people from nearby Maplewood were ejected.
