Horse-Drawn Carriage Accidents
Two Horses Killed and Two Women Injured
From Halifax Evening Courier
Two women were taken to hospital after being thrown from a horse-drawn carriage.
Firefighters from Elland and Halifax were called to the accident at Brian Royd Lane in Greetland at 2.45pm yesterday (Sunday).
The cart came out of Moor Bottom Road and across Rochdale Road before toppling 20ft down a ravine.
One horse fell into the garden below, but the second - and the carriage - became tangled in trees.
A 65-year-old woman from Liversedge who was driving the cart was taken by air ambulance to Huddersfield Royal Infirmary with serious injuries.
The 31-year-old female passenger, from Huddersfield, was also taken to hospital where she was treated for minor injuries.
A vet was called but both horses died.
Rochdale Road was closed until 8.30pm while police and firefighters dealt with the crash.
Witnesses to the accident should contact the police, particularly the driver of a green quad bike and trailer which is known to have been in the area at the time of the incident.
Anyone with information should call PC Gary Inman at the Calderdale Roads Policing Unit on 0845 6060606.
