PARKMAN TOWNSHIP, Ohio — Seven people were injured Thursday evening in a crash involving a vehicle and a buggy that occurred in Geauga County, according to the Parkman Township Fire Department.

Around 9:45 p.m., crews were dispatched to Old State Road for a report of a crash involving a vehicle and a buggy.

Because the crash was so serious, Middlefield Fire and Farmington Fire were called to assist.

A total of seven people, all of whom were in the buggy at the time of the crash, were transported to a nearby hospital for varying degrees of injuries, authorities said.
