There is so much that is unique about Pennsylvania. One of those things is the way that buggies and motor vehicles share the road in a manner not seen in other parts of the country. Most of the time buggies and motor vehicles are able to coexist peacefully because both types of drivers are required to follow similar rules of the road.
For example, it is against the law for both a motor vehicle driver and a buggy driver to drink and drive. Just last week, two buggy drivers were arrested for DUI after they drove their buggy into the path of a car in Western Pennsylvania. Only the horse was injured in that crash and the horse is expected to survive.
If you have been in an accident with a horse and buggy then you may have legal rights to a potential recovery depending on the circumstances of the case. For more information, please contact a PA auto accident lawyer for a free consultation.
