Amish Buggy Sends Officer to Hospital

Police and Amish Buggy Wreck

Elkhart County, Indiana – An Amish buggy driven by 20-year-old Bryan Troyer of Middlebury collided with an Indiana State Police cruiser.  The investigation showed that Troyer failed to yield at the intersection and pulled into the path of Corporal Peter Bradley and his marked car.  The buggy had no functioning lights to give the officer any chance to avoid the accident.

The resulting collision sent Officer Bradley to the hospital for treatment of injuries sustained to his left arm.  Bradley has been an officer with the Indiana State Police for 13 years.  Troyer was treated at the same hospital for injuries to his back, hip and foot.

The horse that was pulling the buggy escaped from the wreckage and headed home on its own.  It was found later, apparently uninjured.
