ADAMS COUNTY, OH (FOX19) - Three people were injured when a car collided with an Amish buggy Wednesday afternoon.

The accident happened on southbound Ohio 136, north of Winchester shortly after 2 p.m.

According to Adams County Sheriff Kimmy Rogers, three teenagers were hurt when a car crashed into the back of the buggy.

"The Amish buggy and the driver were both southbound on SR 136. The other driver just didn't see the buggy. Unfortunately couldn't see it, could not swerve out of the way in time and ended up striking the rear of the buggy," Lt. Randy McElfresh said.

The 18-year-old male driver of the buggy was transported by ground ambulance to an area hospital.  He suffered non-life threatening injuries.

A 17-year-old female and 16-year-old female, who were passengers in the buggy, were taken by Air Care to an area hospital. Their injuries are described as "more serious," according to officials

The horse pulling the buggy was not seriously hurt.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol will be investigating the crash, according to Sheriff Rogers.
