LAGRANGE – It easily could have been much worse.

A buggy driven by a 12-year-old boy failed to stop at the intersection of 300 East and US-20 in LaGrange County just before 7 p-m Monday.

A westbound semi could not stop in time and struck the horse, flipping the buggy over.

The boy and a 7-year-old female passenger suffered minor injuries.

The LaGrange County Sheriff’s Office did not release the names of the children but their address is owned by David & Ada Miller of rural Lagrange.

The boy was taken to Parkview LaGrange Hospital and the girl was released to family members at the scene.

The semi driver – 70-year-old Gordon Seeton of Canton, OH – refused treatment.
