Some terrible news out of Lancaster County this morning:

A crash between a horse and buggy and a dump truck killed four people and injured four others Monday morning, Pennsylvania state police said. The crash happened about 6 miles south of Quarryville, in Lancaster County, shortly before 8 a.m., according to state police Trooper Kelly Osborne.

Images in the video below show the destroyed buggy, and the dump truck. Another photo from the scene, via William Seiders, shows the wet weather conditions:

WGAL reports that three of those killed were children, two girls and one boy. Others were transported to the hospital. No names have been released.

It was reported in September that Lancaster County had had a decrease in the number of fatal buggy accidents over the previous decade. Lancaster Online states that this morning’s accident “appears to be the worst here since 2010. In 2010, a minivan collided with three motorcycles in Penn Township in June, killing five riders.”

Prayers for the families and all involved.
