A 15-year-old boy was transported to McMaster Hospital in Hamilton yesterday afternoon, after the horse and buggy he was riding in crashed with a car.

Waterloo Regional Police say a Chrysler Neon was in the process of passing a Mennonite buggy on Listowel Road near Line 86 near Elmira. Both vehicles were heading northbound when the buggy suddenly turned out in front of the car and they crashed.

Another teen in the buggy, a 17-year-old, sustained cuts and scrapes.

The people in the car were not hurt.

The investigation continues.
