SHADY HILLS, Fla. (AP) — A car crashed into a horse-drawn carriage on a dark road, killing the horse and seriously injuring two people, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
The crash happened Wednesday night in Shady Hills, north of Tampa.
A 26-year-old man and a 39-year-old man were riding in the carriage, which did not have tail lights. A car traveling in the same direction crashed into the carriage, troopers said.
The men were taken to a hospital for treatment. Troopers said the horse died at the crash scene.
The younger man was cited by troopers for operating the carriage without tail lights.
