Two Injured in Rollover Horse-Carriage Crash
Serious injuries aren’t limited to automobile accidents and motorcycle crashes. Two men were hospitalized after a rollover horse-drawn carriage crash on Tuesday. According to Santa Barbara’s Noozhawk, the carriage-rollover crash happened when the horses pulling it spooked and bolted. The driver reportedly lost control of the horses, and the carriage rolled over. The wreck happened just before 2:00 p.m. on a dirt road on the Chamberlin Ranch near Los Olivos.
The two men were ejected from the carriage. At least one of them suffered from serious injuries. First responders were swiftly on the scene, and an air ambulance was dispatched as well. Both victims were taken to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.
