WINDSOR TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WJW) — The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating after a 16-year-old boy, who was riding in an Amish buggy, was killed in a crash Saturday.

According to troopers, the preliminary investigation shows that a Dodge Grand Caravan was traveling eastbound on US 322 and struck the rear of an Amish buggy going in the same direction.

The 53-year-old driver of the Dodge Grand Caravan was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. He was not wearing a seatbelt at the time. The 16-year-old boy died at the scene.

Troopers said it does not appear that alcohol or drugs were a factor.
