Police said the girl was one of four people in the buggy when it was struck Monday afternoon on Route 850 near Fisher Hill Road in Northeast Madison Township.

Summary traffic violations were pending against Myers, police said.

The operator of the horse and buggy was identified by police as 67-year-old Hannah Lantz, also of Loysville.

Myers, Lantz and two other passengers in the buggy were not injured.
