A least eight people were injured in a collision in western Wisconsin involving a horse-drawn buggy and a van.

A two-month-old baby and the infant’s mother were taken in separate air ambulances to Regions Hospital in St Paul. Six other people were taken by ambulance to a health-care facility in the city of Bloomer.

Their conditions have not been reported. It is understood those taken for care were occupants of the buggy.

The collision, which remains under investigation, occurred around 9.30pm on Wednesday in Chippewa County, on Highway F, northeast of New Auburn in the town of Sampson.

The buggy was understood to be traveling north at the time. The collision resulted in the buggy being separated from the horse. The carriage overturned, ejecting some of the occupants.

Reports suggest the horse escaped injury, and the driver of the buggy suffered only minor injuries.

One report said the van was exiting a driveway before the collision.
