A ute has rear-ended an Amish horse-drawn carriage killing two children and seriously injuring two others and a woman who were in the carriage, authorities say.
State police said the two adults and five children who were in the carriage were ejected when the truck hit it on Friday night in Algansee Township, a small farming community in the US state of Michigan.
The children, who were pronounced dead at the scene, were six and two years old.
Authorities say two other children, ages three and four, were hospitalised with life-threatening injuries.
A woman also suffered serious injuries, authorities said.
