A Cazenovia man who drove his SUV into the back of an Amish buggy on Sunday, injuring five people and killing the horse, has turned himself in, authorities said.
Brian Daniels, 38, turned himself in Monday and was arrested by Sauk County officials. He is tentatively charged with five counts of hit-and-run causing injury, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Daniels could face up to nine months in jail and a $10,000 fine on each of the five felony charges.
Investigators are looking into the crash to see if alcohol or drugs were a factor.
The crash happened on Highway 58 in the town of Ironton, when the southbound SUV hit the southbound Amish buggy, throwing five people out of the buggy, including three children and two adults.
All were taken to a local hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
The SUV didn’t stop and was found later in the day in Richland County.
