A Ford Windstar van that crashed into a horse-drawn buggy in Hillsdale Township recently caused several injuries, including the death of a ten-month-old boy, according to an article in the Hillsdale Daily News.
The crash occurred when the van plowed into the back of the buggy, which was traveling along Montgomery Road in Hillsdale’s Woodbridge Township. The van pushed the buggy some distance, upsetting the horses and eventually knocking them into the front yard of a nearby house. The buggy overturned on the lawn of the house, spilling out its three passengers.
All three of the buggy’s passengers were injured in the accident. The smallest, a ten-month-old boy, was airlifted to a local hospital, but he lost his life during the trip. The other two passengers were treated at a local hospital, which has not issued an updated report on their injuries.
