HORSE RUNS LOOSE ON CARRIAGE RIDE

The St. Augustine Record - June 12, 2007

Five visitors from Jacksonville had a wild horse and carriage ride in St. Augustine, leaving one person scraped up and another was taken to Flagler Hospital, according to St. Augustine Police Department.

On Saturday at about 9:30 p.m., the driver stopped at Sevilla and Valencia streets to check on the carriage lights. Once he got out, the horse began running with the passengers still in the carriage, police said. The horse ran down several streets and finally slowed at the corner of Granada and Cedar streets, where the passengers jumped out.

Three people weren't hurt. But one had an abrasion and another suffered multiple injuries and was taken to Flagler Hospital.
The police department did not release the passengers' names on Monday.
The horse was not injured in the incident.
