Fatal Venango County horse and buggy crash kills woman and boy


Clintonville, PA (AP) — State police say a logging truck struck a horse-drawn Amish buggy in northwestern Pennsylvania over the weekend, killing two people and sending three others to hospitals.

Police in Venango County who were called to the scene just after 3 p.m. Sunday said the eastbound truck struck the buggy in Irwin Township.

Police say a family of five was riding in the buggy, and a woman and a juvenile male were dead at the scene.

A man was flown to St. Elizabeth Hospital in Youngstown, Ohio and a juvenile female to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. Another juvenile male was treated and released.
