Three teen girls were seriously injured after their horse and buggy crashed with an SUV in Franklin County.

State police in Chambersburg said the buggy pulled in front of the SUV shortly before 11 p.m. Sunday at Paxton Run and Mowersville roads in Lurgan Township.

Police said all three girls, between the ages of 17 and 19, were flown to Penn State Hershey Medical Center for treatment of moderate to severe injuries.

One of the girls, 17-year-old Barbara Esh, was in serious condition Monday and Emma Mae Lantz, 17, was in fair condition, according to a hospital spokesperson. Eva Lynn Fisher, 19, had been released from the hospital by Monday evening.

The female driver of the SUV was taken to Chambersburg Hospital with minor injuries.

The buggy was splintered into several pieces. The horse was injured but ran away.  Neighbors were unable to locate the animal.
