Horse-Drawn Carriage Accident


carriage hits tractor trailer -- horse not injured
From the New Holland Police Department
8/19/08 -

* On Aug. 13 at about 11 a.m., Officer George McLaughlin investigated an accident at the 800 block of West Main Street in Earl Township involving a tractor trailer being operated by Floyd Weaver of Lititz, and a horse and carriage being operated by Jonas Stoutzfus of Leola. Stoutzfus was traveling west in the 800 block of West Main Street and Weaver was driving his truck eastbound. In the area of Sauder's Chevrolet there was some construction work going on near the roadway and one of the pieces of equipment startled the horse. The horse veered toward the eastbound lane and the carriage struck the side of the trailer. The carriage wheel then caught the rear bumper of the truck and flipped. Weaver was not injured in the accident. Stoutzfus, along with three others who were in the carriage were transported to the hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the accident. None of the injuries were life threatening. The horse was not injured in the accident.
