    A man has been killed by a horse that escaped his owner and collided with a motorcyclist on the road.

    In southeast Turkey, a motorcyclist from Gaziantep has been trampled to death by a horse he collided with on the road.  

    The media reported that the 25-year-old driver known as Behiç Ş. Was riding his motorcycle on the 23 November in the Oğuzeli district when a horse escaped its owner and ran out on to the road.

    The 25-year-old man was unable to avoid the collision with the horse and knocked him to the ground.
