BARRON COUNTY, Wis. — A young woman was injured when a truck hit her buggy Tuesday evening in northwest Wisconsin. 

The Barron County Sheriff's Department said deputies were called to a crash involving an Amish buggy just before 7 p.m. in Prairie Lake Township. Other first responders, including Mayo Helicopter and Wisconsin State Patrol, also arrived. 

The sheriff's department said a 21-year-old woman was riding in the buggy by herself when it was hit from behind by a 2014 Dodge Ram truck. The buggy rolled into a ditch, injuring the woman. Deputies said she was taken to a hospital via ambulance, but her injuries aren't thought to be life-threatening. 

The driver of the truck, a 42-year-old man from Rice Lake, Wisconsin, was not injured. Deputies said the setting sun contributed to the crash, which is still under investigation.
