Boy improves after buggy crash

CHARLOTTE (AP) — The condition of a Michigan boy who survived a horse-drawn buggy crash that killed his three siblings improved Thursday, a day after the tragedy that shocked the local Amish community.

Henry Detweiler told the Lansing State Journal that the children — ages 6, 8, 10 and 13 — had finished school Wednesday and were headed to his blacksmith shop, less than 3 miles away, in Eaton County, southwest of the state capital.

The buggy was struck from behind.
