ASHLAND, Ohio — The Ashland County Sheriff's Office is looking for a vehicle that fled the scene following a crash with an Amish buggy Wednesday evening.

It happened around 8 p.m. on U.S. Route 42 between U.S. Route 250 and C.R. 1302.

Authorities said the buggy was heading south on 42 when it was hit by a vehicle—possibly a red 1999-2005 Chevrolet Blazer or S10—that didn't stop and drove off.

The buggy's occupants, a 43-year-old man and an 8-year-old, were transported to a nearby hospital. They were both treated for minor injuries and released, authorities said. The horse also sustained minor injuries and received medical care.
