GALLIA COUNTY, OH (WOWK) — The Gallipolis Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) says one juvenile is dead after a Ford Escape and Amish horse and buggy crashed in the Rio Grande area.
Around 4:52 p.m. on Friday, OSHP responded to the crash on State Route 325 and found two juveniles ejected from the buggy.

The driver of the car was uninjured, OSHP says.
