Three people were injured, two seriously, in a crash involving a horse and buggy Sunday afternoon in Quarryville.
The accident occurred just before 3 p.m. at South Lime Street and Park Avenue and also involved a Kia Soul.
The three people injured were all in the buggy. A 16-year-old female is expected to be released from the hospital today, Quarryville police Chief Kenneth Work said Tuesday.
Samuel Glick Jr., 20, and a female, 17, both of New Providence, are still hospitalized, Work said.
Initial reports indicated a female to be semi-responsive and a male who initially was pinned under the buggy. Both were taken by ambulance to a local hospital. In a post on its Facebook page, Quarryville Fire Department reported three patients, two of whom had critical injuries.
The Kia Soul was driven by Mary Culbertson, of Elkton, Maryland, according to Work. She was uninjured.
Quarrville police continue to investigate how the accident happened, Work said.
The horse was reported to be running loose after the crash and officials requested a large animal veterinarian respond to the scene. The veterinarian later said the mare appeared to have mostly superficial injuries but had a puncture wound to one leg. She said the animal was led away by the owner before a more complete evaluation could be done.
Work said the horse damaged several parked cars and a building after it got lose and ran away from the scene of the crash.
