Five Hurt, Horse Dies in Crash

Five members of an Amish family were hurt and their horse died when a suspected drunk driver hit their buggy last night near Knox.

An SUV driven by 20-year-old Brandon Breghenti hit the buggy as it was turning into a driveway. Three children – ages 2, 3 and 4 – and their parents were thrown from the buggy.

Police say Breghenti stopped at the scene and briefly stepped out of the SUV before getting back in and driving away.

He's in Clarion County Jail on $75,000 bail.

41-year-old Ruth Burkholder and the 2-year-old were seriously injured. 42-year-old Mark Burkholder and the other children suffered minor injuries.
