Escaped horse dies following car accident
Posted on November 16, 2008
A horse had to be put down after it was involved in a collision with a car in Eaton Bray on Friday morning.
The accident happened around 6am after two horses had escaped from a field in The Comp during the early hours of the morning.
The animals had been wandering up and down the High Street, but their bid for freedom came to a sad end when both horses were in a collision with a Peugeot 106.
One horse, a 16-hand bay, suffered serious leg injuries and had to be put down at the scene; the other received a small cut to the mouth.
Police needed to cordon-off the road near to the junction with The Rye for two hours, to allow a vet to tend to the injured horse. The driver, who reported the accident, was not injured.
