Child in serious condition after horse and buggy accident

NEW HAVEN, Ind. (WPTA21) – A small child is in the hospital after being run over by a horse and buggy Thursday afternoon.

Police say the incident happened just after noon at a farm in the 13200 block of Doty Rd. where an Amish wedding was taking place.

Officials with the Allen County Sheriff’s Department say a balloon popped, spooking a horse attached to a buggy that then trampled the child. The child is said to be between the age of 5 and 6.

The child was rushed to the hospital in serious condition.
