Authorities say the driver of a horse-drawn buggy pulling some farm equipment was killed when the buggy was hit by a car in southern Iowa.

The accident happened shortly before 9 a.m. Saturday on a Decatur County road near Lamoni.

The Iowa State Patrol identifies the buggy driver as Enos Yoder, of Lamoni.

Troopers say the driver of the car was apparently distracted by his MP3 player and didn't see the buggy. Both vehicles were traveling south, and the car hit the buggy from behind.

The patrol says one of the two horses pulling the farm equipment was killed.

The accident remains under investigation.
