SHERIDAN, Mich. - Michigan State Police say a collision between a horse-drawn buggy and a pickup truck has killed three children and critically injured six other people.

Police said the truck crashed into the rear of a buggy carrying nine people about 8:30 a.m. Sunday near the central Michigan village of Sheridan.

The Daily News in Greenville reports the crash killed a 12-year-old boy, a 9-year-old girl and a 7-year-old boy who were riding in the buggy. The six other occupants were hospitalized in critical condition.

A preliminary investigation indicates the two vehicles were travelling east when the truck collided with the buggy.

The driver of the pickup was not injured, and troopers say he was co-operative following the crash.

The crash remains under investigation. Additional details, including the victims' names, haven't been released.
