SHIPSHEWANA – A Howe man was injured when the buggy he was driving was struck from behind by a pickup truck Saturday evening.
23-year-old Cletus Miller suffered injuries to his back and leg when the buggy was struck along U-S 20 just west of Shipshewana at 7:50 p-m. He was transported to Parkview LaGrange Hospital.
LaGrange County sheriff's deputies say Miller was westbound in the buggy lane when a pickup truck driven by 22-year-old Leon Yoder of Topeka swerved into the buggy lane and struck the buggy from behind.
Yoder told police he was talking to his passenger when the truck veered into the buggy lane. Police cited Yoder for unsafe lane movement.
