SUNBURG, Minn. -- A 73-year-old man was airlifted Saturday afternoon after being injured in a horse and buggy accident in northern Kandiyohi County in central Minnesota.

The accident happened around 2:30 p.m. when horses that were pulling a covered wagon as part of a small wagon train got spooked and ran into a ditch.

The driver, who was not identified in a news release issued by the Kandiyohi County Sheriff’s Office, was thrown from the wagon and injured.

He was airlifted from the scene about seven miles east of Sunburg.

He was taken to St. Cloud Hospital. The extent of his injuries are unknown.
