One Injured After Woman Reportedly Hits Amish Buggy With Truck

Posted: Updated:

CAMDEN-WYOMING, Del. - State Police are looking into a crash involving a horse drawn buggy and a pick-up truck.

Around 5:15 PM on Monday, Delaware State Police say Marian Iplenski, 78, of Hartly, was driving a Dodge Dakota East on Westville Road near Hazlettville Road, when she apparently failed to see an Amish buggy that was partially in the roadway in front of her. An investigation shows that Iplenski hit the back of the buggy, which caused it to rollover into the shoulder.

Iplenski drove to a nearby house to call 911. The 15-year-old buggy driver was not injured in the crash, but his 13-year-old passenger had to be flown from the scene to A.I. DuPont Hospital, where he is currently listed in critical condition. Iplenski, was wearing her seat belt. She was taken from the scene by EMS to Kent General Hospital where she was treated for unrelated health issues. She received a citation for inattentive driving.

Westville Road was closed for about an hour while investigators cleared the scene. Police say that the horse was not severely injured and was taken from the scene by members of the Amish Community.
