Mi. (FOX) — Two children were killed and two others critically injured when an allegedly intoxicated driver crashed into an Amish horse-drawn buggy in southern Michigan, police said.

Todd Price told ABC News the driver, who has not been publicly identified at this time, was driving a pick-up truck when they rear-ended the buggy carrying two adults and five children on Friday. The incident occurred alongside a highway in Marshall, according to the news outlet.
The impact threw all seven passengers from the carriage. Two of the five children — ages 2 and 6 — were killed. They were pronounced dead at the scene.
