MAYFIELD, Ky. -- A buggy carrying five Amish children was hit by a sport utility vehicle in western Kentucky and the buggy driver was cited for not displaying a safety triangle.

Saturday's crash comes after nine Graves County, Ky., Amish men have been jailed for refusing to pay fines over the safety symbol, which they object to on religious grounds.

Graves County Sheriff's Deputy Steve Halsell cited a teenage boy who was driving because the buggy didn't have the required slow-moving vehicle symbol. The other driver was cited on charges of DUI and leaving the scene of an accident.
