Buggy collides with semi trailer


Shortly after 6 p.m. on May 21, James Hickman, 48, of Montpelier, Ohio, was driving a semi eastbound on US 20 approaching SR 5 when he attempted to pass a buggy owned by Steven Hochstetler of Middlebury that was traveling in the shoulder lane.

As the semi passed the buggy, the horse jumped into Hickman’s travel lane, colliding with the semi’s trailer.

One adult and two juvenile passengers in the buggy were transported by ambulance to Parkview LaGrange Hospital for their injuries. Hickman was uninjured.
