By  | 

Two people were treated and released after the horse drawn buggy they were in was rear ended by a car.

Just after 6 p.m. Saturday, emergency crews responded to the area of SW 16th and W Denton Road.

Sergeant John Vik of the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office said the carriage was being pulled by a pony and traveling eastbound, in the roadway.

According to Vik, a Toyota Camry was also eastbound and tried to swerve to avoid the buggy, but could not avoid the crash.

Both people on the open buggy were transported to a Lincoln area hospital where they were treated and released.

There is some damage to the Camry, but the buggy is considered to be a total loss.

The driver of the Camry and the pony were both uninjured.

Vik said there were no citations issued.
