HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Sheriff’s officials in southwestern Kentucky say one girl died and three others were injured when a car struck their horse drawn buggy as it skittered across a road.

The Christian County Sheriff’s Office told WBKO in Bowling Green (https://bit.ly/1yFS5bh ) that 14-year-old Judith Martin dies Sunday afternoon. Deputies say Martin and three other girls were riding in the two-wheeled buggy near Hopkinsville when a semi drove past and spooked the horse.

The horse ran across a four-lane highway quickly and into the path of a car. Deputies say the collision caused all four girls to be ejected.

The three other girls were taken to Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee. Two of them are 14 years old, and the other is 13.

The identities of the surviving girls haven’t been released.
