NEW LEBANON, Pa. (AP) - Two people are hospitalized with major injuries after an SUV crashed into their horse-drawn buggy in western Pennsylvania.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (https://bit.ly/2oCCfBU ) reports that Melvin and Lydia Yoder were about 4 miles from their home when a woman rear-ended their buggy just before 10 p.m. Wednesday. The impact threw both of them from the buggy. Police say the Yoders were flown to the hospital.
