Seven persons were injured last night after a four door Mazda pickup truck, FAR 1196, collided with a horse on the Roseau stretch, it has been reported.
The vehicle ran off the road and plunged into a concrete drain.
According to information obtained by the Times, the accident occurred after 11 pm.
All seven persons who were in the vehicle at the time of the accident were transported to hospital with injuries ranging from minor abrasions to head trauma.
An eyewitness told the Times that as a result of the collision, the horse sustained multiple injuries including broken legs and was on the road suffering before it eventually died.
The Police are reported to have made arrangements for the animal to be removed from the scene.
According to the eyewitness, persons on the scene reported having seen a young man riding the same horse earlier in the night and said they were mystified as to why someone would go horse riding in the dark.
“I guess no one will claim ownership of the horse now,” the eyewitness said.
