11 In Buggy When Struck By Motor Vehicle

(CHATSWORTH, ON) – No injuries are reported following a crash involving a motor vehicle and a horse drawn buggy.

On April 21, 2024, at 9:15 a.m., the Grey Bruce Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) along with Grey County Paramedic Services and Chatsworth Fire Services responded to a report of a collision at Grey Road 3 and Sideroad 6 in the Municipality of Chatsworth involving a vehicle and a horse drawn buggy. There were eleven individuals in the buggy, no injuries were reported.

A 39-yer-old individual from South Bruce was charged with careless driving.

Horse drawn vehicles are a common sight on Grey and Bruce County rural roadways and drivers must be prepared to encounter this type of vehicle on their travels. Horse drawn buggies travel about 14 km/h, making them one of the slowest moving vehicles on the road. They are also one of the lightest vehicles which leaves them at a greater risk of injury should they become involved in a collision. 

Drivers using roadways in rural parts of southwestern Ontario should expect to encounter slow moving vehicles such as horse-drawn vehicles and farm equipment on the road. They are common users of the road and have a right to be on the roadway. 

If you encounter a horse drawn buggy, maintain a safe following distance and leave plenty of room when you pass. Passing too closely may startle the horse, causing it to suddenly change direction.

Drivers in Grey and Bruce County need to stay alert and need to always keep an eye out for slow moving vehicles such as horse drawn vehicles. Please do your part to keep our roadways safe.
