Horse and Buggy Rear-Ended by Vehicle

March 22, 2017
An accident in southern Illinois occurred on Tuesday afternoon involving a vehicle and a horse and buggy. The Jackson County Sheriff's Department responded to calls reporting the car accident had occurred at approximately 4 p.m. near Campbell Hill. According to authorities, Robert Hines was driving a car when he failed to reduce his speed and slammed into the rear of a horse and buggy being operated by Lovina Lambright. Lambright and six children were traveling in the buggy, and, fortunately, there were no injuries. Hines was cited for operating a motor vehicle without valid insurance and failure to reduce speed to avoid a crash.
