PIGEON, Wis. (AP) - All but one of the nine people injured when their buggy was struck by a vehicle in western Wisconsin have been released from the hospital.

David and Lydia Wengerd, of Osseo, and seven children were hurt when a vehicle hit the back of the buggy on Highway 53 east of Whitehall Friday.

Trempealeau County sheriff's officials say a 19-year-old Strum man failed to yield to the slow-moving buggy.

The La Crosse Tribune says the injured were taken to Tri-County Memorial Hospital in Whitehall and to the Mayo Clinic branch in Osseo. David Wengerd remains in the hospital with leg injuries that require additional surgery.
