3 dead, 4 injured after horse and buggy crash with dump truck in Pennsylvania

A crash between a horse and buggy and a dump truck killed three people and injured four others Monday morning, Pennsylvania state police said. Police initially said four people were killed, but later said the "initial release of information regarding the number of fatalities was incorrect."

The crash happened about 6 miles south of Quarryville, in Lancaster County, shortly before 8 a.m., according to state police Trooper Kelly Osborne.

William Seiders of CBS affiliate WHP-TV posted photos of the scene shortly after the crash.

Troopers remained at the scene and said they would release more details later.

Buggies are common in Lancaster County, which hosts a large settlement of Amish, and numerous fatal crashes have been reported over the years. In August, a crash involving a pickup truck and a horse and buggy claimed the life of an Amish teenager and seriously injured three other people. In June, a 10-month-old girl died after a horse-drawn Amish buggy she was riding in was struck by a car.
