Terrible story out of Hopkinsville, Kentucky …
52 year old Mark Bohms, is being held at the Christian County Jail after the tractor trailer he was driving crashed into a horse drawn buggy, killing a young Amish girl and injuring three members of her family. A 3 year old little girl is dead and the buggy was literally flattened as the other injured were flown to Vanderbilt Medical Center. The accident took place on Fort Campbell Boulevard in Hopkinsville, KY. Bohms is being held for murder, operating a vehicle under the influence, criminal mischief and three counts of assault.
The accident occurred at 8:30 p.m. in the northbound lanes between Interstate 24 and Crenshaw Boulevard, which is the entrance to the Wal-Mart Distribution Center.
The tractor-trailer, driven by Bohms, was behind the buggy, driven by Abram Smoker, 58, of Herndon, in the right lane, said Hopkinsville Police Department spokesman Paul Ray.
Bohms attempted to move into the left lane but could not shift over soon enough to avoid hitting the buggy. Barber Smoker, 3, was pronounced dead at the scene, Ray said.
Mark Bohms is presently in the Christian County Jail.
