NewsChannel 9 reporter Alana LaFlore is following up on this story Monday.

She spoke with the family's mother, Susie Beiler, who tells us of their four daughters, aged 6-10, one has a broken arm, one got a concussion and required stitches, and the other two daughters have bruises. Her 12-year-old son remains in the hospital with a lacerated spleen.

Beiler says the family was on their way home from a friend's house when the accident happened. She says conditions were very foggy. She says they saw two ATV's on the road behind them, and one of them hit the buggy.

That accident then spooked the horse, which raced 100 feet down the road with the occupants still in the buggy, eventually overturning down an embankment, according to the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

Tennessee Highway Patrol says charges are pending.

This is a developing story. Look for Alana's report Monday night at 5 & 6.
