SHERIDAN, Mich. (AP) — Michigan State Police say a collision between a horse-drawn buggy and a pickup truck has killed three children and critically injured six other people.

Police said the truck crashed into the rear of a buggy carrying nine people about 8:30 a.m. Sunday near the central Michigan village of Sheridan.

The Daily News in Greenville reports the crash killed a 12-year-old boy, a 9-year-old girl and a 7-year-old boy who were riding in the buggy. The six other occupants were hospitalized in critical condition.
