Car collides with horses in Cumbria

Two horses died when a car collides with the horses and their riders in Cumbria. A man in his 70 has been charged for causing the collision, his charges includes drink-driving, driving without due care and attention and driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence.

The collision happened where the slip road joined another road off junction 39, near Shap, at at about 6PM on Friday. A male rider in his 60s suffered a minor head injury and serious chest and leg injuries. A woman in her 50s suffered minor knee injuries.

When collision like this occurs, the horses always come off worst, most of the time losing their lives.
