At around 7:30 a.m. local time on Cleveland Street, a horse was loose and crossing the road. Two cars pulled off to the side of the road to allow the horse to cross.
A third vehicle did not stop or slow down for the horse, crashing head-on with it and killing the horse, reports WZZM. After hitting the horse, the driver slammed into a vehicle that had pulled over to let the horse pass.
The woman in the hit vehicle was pinned inside and had to be extricated by emergency crews. According to WZZM, she was transported by an Aero Med helicopter in critical condition. The driver of the car that hit the horse was treated for minor injuries.
