Horse killed in crash involving semi, buggy in Guernsey County

| March 25, 2024

LONDONDERRY – A horse was killed early Monday morning in a crash involving a semi and an Amish buggy.

Initially reported in Harrison County, the crash happened in Guernsey County. Sgt. Tim Cunningham with the State Highway Patrol says the 28-year-old semi driver had just negotiated a curve when he came upon the buggy on state Route 800 in Londonderry township at 5:32 a.m.

The semi began passing on the left in a passing zone when the buggy began to make a left turn, and they collided.

The semi driver was not hurt. His company towed his vehicle from the scene.

The 22-year-old driver of the Amish buggy had minor injuries and refused treatment at the scene. Cunningham says the buggy was properly lit with flashers and a reflective triangle, which may have prevented a more serious crash.

Alcohol is not a factor, and the crash is still under investigation.
