NORTH STORMONT — Two adult passengers in a horse-drawn buggy were taken to hospital with serious non-life threatening injuries after being struck by a westbound vehicle on Fairview Drive in Avonmore late yesterday afternoon, a crash that seriously injured two horses drawing the carriage, one of them fatally.

“Tragically, one [of the horses] has died,” reports the SD&G OPP, whose officers responded to the scene shortly after 4 p.m.

The detachment was processing the scene last night, with the assistance of OPP Traffic Collision Investigators (TCI). Traffic was detoured around Fairview as the investigation progressed.
