ELK GROVE, WI (WTAQ) - Prosecutors in southwest Wisconsin are considering possible charges against a pick-up truck driver in a rear-end crash that killed a man on an Amish buggy.

20-year-old Levi Kinsinger of Platteville died in the crash, which occurred early Wednesday evening on Highway 81 in the Lafayette County town of Elk Grove.

Authorities said the buggy was going west when it was rear-ended – and a horse that was pulling the buggy had to be euthanized due to serious injuries.

Sheriff’s deputies said the buggy’s lights were on at the time.

A 29-year-old Darlington man was driving the truck. He was not hurt.
