Horse-Drawn Carriage Accidents
Runaway Carriage Horse Scatters Crowd at Peddlers Village
Submitted by Coalition to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages
A horse spooked by a tour bus took off with its rider-less carriage Sunday afternoon scattering holiday crowds at Peddlers Village.Erin Meyers, 32, of Perkasie, the operator of the carriage, who was standing nearby, was injured when the horse ran, according to Solebury Police Cpl. Jonathan Koretzky.
She was taken by Central Bucks Ambulance to St. Mary Medical Center, police said.
However, a hospital spokeswoman said Sunday night that there was no record of Meyers being treated there.
Koretzky said the horse and carriage were standing on Peddlers Lane near a candy store when a bus went by.
“I don’t know if the bus exhaust frightened the horse, but it took off down Peddlers Lane and went across Street Road,” said Koretzky.
According to police, the carriage struck a car parked in a lot near the road. The horse broke free and ran into what police described as “common field” near the main parking lot. That’s where bystanders managed to “corral” .the frightened horse until the injured Meyers arrived to calm it down.
Police reported no other injuries.
Police said the horse was owned by West End Farms in Solebury.
A message left for the horse farm was not returned Sunday night.
