DRIVER INJURED IN CRASH WITH HORSE-DRAWN BUGGY

JEFFERSON COUNTY, IL — A rural Mt. Vernon man was injured Sunday night when just before 9 p.m. his SUV struck the rear of a horse drawn buggy between Belle Rive and Opdyke.

According to the Jefferson Fire Protection District, Tyler Miles was westbound on State Route 142 when he struck the buggy, causing his vehicle to run off the road and roll several times before coming to a stop. Miles was taken to a local hospital for treatment of an arm injury. Two 17-year-old females were both thrown from the buggy. However, they appeared not to be injured and were able to take the horse pulling the buggy to a neighbor’s house. The buggy was heavily damaged.
