TOWN OF MARCELLON, Wis. (AP) — Four Amish children are seriously hurt after a collision between a buggy and a sport utility vehicle in south-central Wisconsin.
Columbia County sheriff’s authorities say the horse and buggy was leaving a country store when the crash happened Thursday morning in the Town of Marcellon.
The four children were thrown from the horse and buggy. Two of the children were flown by Medflight to UW Hospital in Madison with life-threatening injuries. The other two children were taken to Divine Savior Hospital in Portage with serious injuries.
The SUV driver was treated and released.
Names of the injured were not released. The investigation continues but the sheriff’s office says drugs or alcohol do not appear to be factors.
