Updated – Truck slams into Amish Buggy
There were no serious injuries when an Amish buggy and pickup collided in Clare Tuesday afternoon.
Clare Police Chief Dwayne Miedzianowski said the accident happened around 2 p.m. when a GMC truck driven by Dick VanDeusen hit the buggy from behind.
Both the buggy and truck were northbound on Business U.S. 127 just north of Witbeck’s.
Miedzianowski said VanDeusen was about to pass the buggy when he saw a vehicle on his left. He was unable to stop and hit the buggy pushing it into the oncoming southbound lanes. The buggy ended up rolling on its side, but was not hit by any other vehicle.
Five adults and a five-year old were in the buggy. They were checked out and released with minor injuries, Miedzianowski said.
VanDeusen was cited for following too closely.
