No one was seriously injured when a car lost control on a slippery roadway in Becker County on Nov. 23, hitting a horse-drawn buggy full of kids.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, Roger Henry Meyer, 57, of Menahga was driving a 2005 Toyota Corolla westbound on Highway 87 near mile marker 10 when he lost control on the frost-covered road. The Toyota spun out and struck the buggy, then ran off the highway into the south ditch.

The buggy held five young people: Two 13-year-old girls, a 12-year-old girl, a 9-year-old girl and an 8-year-old boy. Their names and cities of residence were not released in the report. The crash report lists the incident as an injury accident, but nobody is listed as going to the hospital. Meyer was wearing a seatbelt. The airbag did not deploy on the Corolla, and no alcohol was involved.

The accident was reported at 8:30 a.m. Nov. 23 in Silver Leaf Township, Becker County. The Otter Tail County Sheriff's Office assisted at the scene.
