Harness pony bolts and two vehicles crash as a result

See also

Emergency services were called about 6:00 p.m. on Dec. 17 to an accident that had just happened in Pembroke on North Shore Road, Bermuda. The problem stemmed from a harness pony, pulling a cart along North Shore Road near the junction with Stepney Lane, that suddenly bolted and spooked at a loud noise coming from a garbage truck passing through the area.

Two other vehicles driving on the same road, saw the bolting pony and tried to avoid the animal. They did what they could to steer clear of the little horse but the car ended up smashing into a utility pole and the tractor trailer crashed into a wall.

The horse was located, and was safe and sound, off the main driving area of the road. He had no apparent injuries.

A Pembroke woman, 39, injured a leg and a 36-year-old Paget man also had injuries. Both were taken via emergency vehicle for treatment to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital. There were no other reports of injuries.

An update given on the unnamed Pembroke woman is that she is in stable condition and recovering well. The update for the gentleman, also unnamed, states that he has already been discharged.

Anyone who witnessed the accident is encouraged to contact PC Patricia Jeffers at the Hamilton Police Station, 295-0011.
