BUCKINGHAM COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — A 31-year-old woman has died following a crash involving a horse-drawn buggy in Buckingham County Friday afternoon.

Virginia State Police responded to the crash on Route 60 near High School Road at 3:55 p.m.

“The buggy was traveling east on Route 60 when it was struck from the rear by an eastbound 2015 Chevrolet Silverado pickup, VSP said. “The buggy was equipped with flashing lights and a reflective triangle.”

Inside of the buggy was a Buckingham County family of six.

Jason Wharam with the Dillwyn Volunteer Fire Department was one of the first responders who rushed to the crash and said the loss impacts everyone.

“It shakes up a small community a lot,” said Wharam. “We just need to slow down and pay attention. We don’t want a loss in a small community.”

John Yoder was thrown from the buggy when it was struck by the Silverado pickup driven by 67-year-old George M. Lee.

VSP said four children — two boys and two girls ranging in age from 2 years to 10 years old — were transported to UVA Medical Center for treatment of serious injuries.

Sylvia Yoder was transported to UVA Medical Center where she died Saturday morning.

Raymond Allen lives next to the Yoder family and shares his memories with 8News.

“They’re real good people. All of them are just upstanding,” said Allen. “They had just been to a Christmas play and everything was going great. It’s terrible that it happened this time of year.”

One of the horses had to be put down on the scene. The second horse was taken to the vet for treatment.

Lee has been charged with reckless driving. Authorities said alcohol was not a factor in the crash.

The crash remains under investigation.
