If you know someone who drives a rusty, older model, blue Chrysler van with dark tinted windows and golden yellow New York plates that looks like it may have recently hit something recently State Police want to hear from you.

Troopers are asking for your help identifying both the vehicle and operator of a van that hit an Amish horse and buggy on Monday, July 7, 2014 at approximately 3:42pm.

The accident took place on State Route 16 in Ischua.

The vehicles were travelling northbound with the horse and buggy in the far right shoulder when they were hit from behind by the van.  The horse and buggy went into the ditch.

Despite causing the accident the driver of the van continued without stopping.

Authorities say evidence shows that the van would have “heavy passenger side damage including the bumper, headlight assembly, antenna and possible windshield breakage.”

The driver of the buggy and his two sons suffered cuts to their scalps and were treated for what are expected to be non-life threatening injuries at Olean General Hiospital.  The horse was cut as well and may have sustained internal injuries.  It was, however, able to walk and was brought back to the owner’s home along with the buggy by a trailer.

Anyone with information is being asked to call New York State Police at: (585) 344.6220.
