Horse-drawn buggies are rarely used in modern society except among certain religious groups. Northeastern Indiana has one of the largest populations of one such group: the Amish. Although there are papers written about the incidence of buggy crashes, no paper has specifically addressed the specific types of injuries sustained when buggies collide with motorized vehicles. This paper reviews the types of injuries sustained when such events occur.
