Runaway Amish Buggy Crashes Into Parked Car

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) – Police in central Pennsylvania say a runaway Amish buggy crashed into a parked car after the horse's harness broke.

No one was seriously hurt in the accident, which happened around 9: 30 a. m. Thursday in Aaronsburg.

The Centre Daily Times reports (http://bit.ly/qpcVB5 ) the buggy was headed east on Route 45 when part of the horse's harness broke. A 54-year-old woman riding in the buggy tried to steer it off the road, but was thrown into a fence.

The horse and buggy then headed down an alley and through a field, hitting two signs and then crashing into the unattended parked car. The woman suffered a minor head injury and the car had minor damage.
