Authorities say an Amtrak train struck a runaway horse and buggy in central Pennsylvania, but no one aboard the train was injured.
The chief of the Paradise-Leaman Place fire company told WGAL-TV that the empty buggy got stuck on the tracks in Paradise Township, Lancaster.
The eastbound Amtrak train No. 624 heading to Philadelphia struck the horse and buggy shortly after 9 p.m. Friday, destroying the buggy and killing the horse.
Amtrak police told LNP newspapers that no injuries were reported among the approximately 90 people on board. State police said a runaway horse was reported prior to the crash.
Emergency crews dispatched to the scene reported considerable debris scattered on the tracks. Passengers were reportedly transferred to another train.
