    Terrifying moment car DRIVES straight into horse and riders

    A horrific collision involving two horse riders has been caught on video after a motorist was driving on the wrong side of the road.

     

    Both riders were thrown straight onto the road after the crash happened in Ely, Cambridgeshire.

     

    A police spokesman at the scene stated: "Both the riders and horses were not seriously injured. We are investigating the incident and are making enquiries."

    The police force explained that they would not comment on claims over social media that the driver had suffered a stroke because "the cause of the accident is still being investigated". However, the East of England Ambulance Service has now confirmed that they did not treat the driver for any medical problems after the incident.

    Luckily enough the female rider that was knocked off only experienced minor injuries, and her friend was miraculously left uninjured.

    According to sources, Patch, one of the horses is thought to have been taken to the vets having bad bruising.

    A passer by from the scene was appalled and described the scene as this: ‘If the driver hit the horse head on that horse would have gone straight into his windscreen,’ he told Cambridge News: ‘Not only would the horse have died but so would the driver.’

    Currently an investigation is taking place, but the driver is yet to be charged. Here at Horsemart we wish all victims involved a fast recovery.
