Safe Mode: On
Horse Escape in Midtown

A Carriage Horse Ran Four Blocks Through Midtown After Colliding With a Car Most Central Park carriage horse news consists of sad tales of animals just collapsing and dying on the street. Today's story
is a little more exciting, though also ultimately sad. This afternoon, a
horse-drawn carriage carrying two passengers overturned after colliding with a car at
59th Street and Seventh Avenue. The horse escaped the wreckage and —
with its haress and, for at least some of the time, part of the carriage
still attached — ran all the way to 57th Street and Ninth Avenue before
it "slowed to a stop right behind the cars and waited for the
light," according to one witness. With the help of a passerby, a cop
then managed to tie the "terrified" and bloody animal to a lampost
before shooting it with a tranquilizer dart, causing it to slump to the
ground. Eventually, the horse got up and was led into the back of a
police truck, which hopefully transported it to a place less scary than
midtown.
