A 7 year-old boy was thrown from an Amish buggy after it was hit by a car in Graves County.

Deputies say a 17 year-old was driving westbound on St. Rt. 944 around 4:30pm Sunday.  He told deputies when he topped the hill, he saw the buggy and tried to swerve around it, but the passenger side fender of the vehicle hit the side of the buggy.

He drove his car into a ditch.  The buggy also went off the road and hit a tree.  The 7 year-old fell out of the buggy. He was bruised, but his parents declined to take him to the hospital.  

Five other children were in the buggy, along with their parents. They were not injured. 

The driver of the car was not seriously hurt.
