ARTHUR TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) – Authorities say at least six people were injured when a horse-drawn buggy was hit by a car in Clare County.

The sheriff’s department says the crash happened Sunday night in Arthur Township, about 130 miles northwest of Detroit.

The department says a 22-year-old man rear-ended the buggy, which had nine people inside.
