Cayuga County sheriff asks drivers to use caution following string of horse-drawn buggy accidents
May 9, 2018
CAYUGA COUNTY, NY - Late last month, after responding to the third horse and buggy accident in three months, members of the Cayuga County Sheriff's Office sat down to discuss what had gone wrong on the road.
The string of accidents began in February when a horse-drawn buggy was struck from behind in the town of Locke. Fortunately, Lt. Michael Wellauer said, it was a minor collision and there were no injuries to the buggy occupants or the horse. No tickets were issued.
However, Sgt. Timothy Axton said the following cases were much more serious.
