Traffic investigators think a driver heading east may have been blinded by the sun when she hit and killed a 10-year-old boy riding in a horse-drawn buggy near a Mennonite village in Livingston County.
Authorities say the driver of the SUV was blinded by the sun and hit the carriage from behind, but the investigation is still ongoing. The vehicle's driver was not injured.
