Pickup hits Amish buggy

JAVA — A woman in an Amish buggy was injured in a crash with a pickup truck on Chaffee Road Monday morning, Wyoming County sheriff’s deputies said.

A Ford F350 pickup truck was driving east when it crested a hill with the rising sun directly in the driver’s eyes, deputies said.

The driver was unable to see an Amish Buggy heading east at the same time with no visible markings, deputies said.

The truck slammed into the buggy, causing it to roll over.

The man driving the truck was not injured.

The woman was taken by ambulance to Erie County Medical Center for treatment for non-life-threatening injuries.

The horse pulling the buggy had to be euthanized.

No charges were filed.
