A 21-year-old woman was seriously injured when a horse-drawn carriage she was operating hit a car in Old City Friday afternoon, police and fire officials said.
The accident happened at about 3:45 p.m. on 3rd Street near Callowhill, said Officer Tanya Little, a police department spokeswoman.
The horse and carriage was stopped waiting for the traffic light to change on 3rd Street when the horse was suddenly startled and ran into oncoming traffic on Callowhill Street, Little said. The horse hit a Jeep, and the woman was flung onto the car’s windshield.
