DAVIESS COUNTY, Ind. -- One person was hospitalized in rural Daviess County, Indiana Monday when a horse and buggy collided with an ambulance transporting a patient. 

The crash happened around 8:30 p.m., near the intersection of County Road 900 E. and County Road 975 N. 

Investigators with the Indiana State Police say the ambulance was traveling south on 900 E., with its emergency lights on, but no siren. As the ambulance approached 975 N., it met a line of horse and buggies also traveling south. 

The last one in the line turned his buggy onto 975 N. The driver of the ambulance didn't have time to avoid the buggy and struck it on the left side, causing it to flip with the occupants inside.

A female occupant of the buggy was taken to the Daviess County Hospital for her injuries. The horse was dazed, but uninjured. 

Nobody inside the ambulance was hurt.
