(Lampeter) -- Police say four members of an Amish family escaped serious injury when their buggy was hit by a sport-utility vehicle in Lancaster County.

West Lampeter Township police released additional information, today, about the crash that occurred Sunday afternoon.

Police say a 76-year-old Quarryville woman was driving an SUV when she rear-ended the buggy.

Police plan to cite that woman for careless driving, but The Associated Press is not identifying her because the citation hadn't been filed by Monday afternoon.

Police say the buggy's driver, 40-year-old Joseph Beiler, his 37-year-old wife, Annie Beiler, and two sons -- an infant and a teenager -- were treated and released Sunday night from Lancaster General Hospital.

The driver was traveling about 45 miles per hour in a 55 mph zone, and told police she didn't see the buggy.
