The Eaton County man who ran into the back of an Amish

killing three young siblings is now speaking out about what happened.

Ronald Ramsey, 83, of Vermontville said he was behind the wheel of the SUV that hit the buggy.

The crash happened last Wednesday afternoon on Vermontville Highway.

Ramsey said he was driving into the sun and didn't see the buggy until it was too late.

Ramsey said it haunts him to think about the three young children who died.

The fourth child in the buggy, who is 6, was released from the hospital. He was said to have had a head and leg injury, according to Jerri Nesbitt of the Eaton County Sheriff's office.

The buggy was traveling west on Vermontville Highway when the car ran into it from behind at 3:19 p.m. on Sept. 18.
