Paisley Businesses Raise Funds for Accident Victims

Paisley | by Megan Johnson  

The accident involving a horse drawn buggy and a School Bus in Arran-Elderslie sent five youths to hospital.

Following the March 7 accident involving a horse drawn buggy and a School Bus in Arran- Elderslie which sent five youths riding in the buggy to hospital, the community of Paisley is coming together to raise funds for the two families affected by the incident.

Currently Paisley Freshmart and McCullough's Service Centre are accepting donations that will be donated to the families.

Brian MacKinnon, a neighbour to one of the families says they're a fixture at the Paisley Farmers Market and says the community immediately wanted to find a way to support those involved.

"Anytime there's an accident involving kids, it's quite a shock. People responded right away asking what they can do to help". He says besides donating money community members have driven the family to doctor's appointments and to visit family members when they were in Hospital.

South Bruce OPP reported on Tuesday (March 12) that all involved have been released from hospital.

MacKinnon told Bayshore Broadcasting the horse pulling the buggy was unharmed and made its way back home by itself.

The accident occurred on Concession 10 Elderslie and Sideroad 5 Elderslie in Arran-Elderslie around 4 p.m.

The investigation remains ongoing and police are asking any witnesses to contact the South Bruce OPP at 1-888-310-1122, or Crime-Stoppers.
