Sidney is about 75 miles northwest of Columbus.

A 23-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene. The infants were flown to a Dayton hospital. The man was taken to a local medical facility and transferred to a Dayton hospital.

Sheriff Lt. Tim Bender says the four were members of the same family. Their names haven’t been released.

The driver of the vehicle that struck the buggy fled on foot after the accident and was arrested a mile from the scene.
