News: Driver falls asleep, vehicle hits horse-drawn buggy in Indiana County

INDIANA COUNTY, PA — State police responded to a crash involving an Amish horse and buggy Tuesday afternoon in South Mahoning Township, reports WTAE.

Authorities said the accident occurred on a span of Route 210, shortly after 12:00 p.m.

A preliminary investigation indicates a 28-year-old Wexford man was driving behind an Amish horse and buggy. At one point, he fell asleep behind the wheel and his vehicle struck the back of the buggy. The impact of the crash then sent the horse and buggy off of the roadway.

The operator of the horse and buggy, a 65-year-old woman, is believed to have suffered a minor injury. The horse was not reported hurt.

It was unclear whether the male driver sustained any injuries or if any charges are expected to be filed.
