  • An Amish horse-and-buggy accident
Driving-while-Amish has proved, once again, a hazardous activity in Missouri.

A 19-year-old Amish kid died on Friday after his horse-and-buggy was rear-ended by an SUV north of Seymour a few days earlier.

This comes two years after a 29-year-old Amish man was killed when his buggy was rear-ended by a motorist who may have been texting. And we might be seeing more of this as the Amish population swells in the state

(Some say the Amish need to get the eff out the way; others are more accommodating).
