Pennsylvania State Police have released details on a horse-and-buggy crash that injured three members of the Amish community, two of them seriously, Wednesday morning.
Police said at 8:46 a.m. March 3, Tabitha L. Evelhoch, 20, of Newville, was driving a northbound 2012 Ford Focus behind a horse-and-buggy being operated by Marcus K. Lantz, 45, of Newburg. Evelhoch hit the rear of the buggy. The impact sent Lantz and two boys airborne from the buggy onto U.S. 11, near Newville Road.
The two boys suffered suspected serious injuries, and were flown to Penn State Hershey Medical Center via Life Lion and WellSpan air medical helicopters.
Lantz suffered minor to moderate injuries, and was taken to Holy Spirit Geisinger Hospital for treatment via Shippensburg Area EMS.
The horse was not injured in the accident.
Evelhoch was also not injured in the accident. Police said the investigation is ongoing, and no information regarding charges against her has been released.
A portion of U.S. 11/Ritner Highway was closed until 1:30 p.m. for emergency personnel to investigate and clear the scene.
