Horse on mend; deputies seek driver in hit and run


TOWN OF MARCY — The horse involved in the hit and run Amish buggy crash on Tuesday suffered minor injuries and is recovering, according to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office.

Meanwhile, the driver has been identified and charged, deputies stated.

Authorities said the hose and buggy was operating on Route 12 at about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday when it was rear-ended by a black-colored Ford sedan, which then fled the scene.

Deputies said the owner took the horse home for evaluation, and the animal is recovering from neck and leg injuries.

Deputies said the driver of the Ford was eventually identified as Shaun McKerrow, of Poland. Deputies said McKerrow was ticketed on Thursday with one count of leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident, and he is scheduled to appear in Marcy Town Court.
