CENTRE COUNTY, PA — Two teenagers and an adult man were hospitalized Saturday afternoon after their horse-drawn buggy was hit by a minivan in Walker Township, reports WPXI.

Pennsylvania State Police have not disclosed the exact location of the wreck, but authorities responded to a road near Bellefonte, just before 2:30 p.m.

Preliminary details indicate a 50-year-old man was operating a buggy pulled by a horse when a minivan driven by a 80-year-old man struck the back of the buggy.

The buggy driver and his two teenage passengers, ages 14 and 15, suffered significant injuries. First responders had the male driver and the 14-year-old airlifted to Williamsport Hospital while the 15-year-old was rushed by ambulance to Mount Nittany Medical Center.

Authorities said the driver of the minivan and his 9-year-old female passenger were not reported hurt, but the male driver was still taken to the medical center. A 75-year-old woman in the van sustained minor injuries.

No other information has been shared, but an investigation into the cause of the crash remains ongoing.
