The Accident
58/365

I had to head out this morning around 9 for an appointment.  As I started to pull out of the driveway, I saw police lights off in the direction I needed to go.  There's a very sharp "S" curve just yards past my house, and I could see that there had been an accident at the curve.  

The traffic controller waved to me that I could go forward and when I got to the corner, this is what I saw.  It took my breath away.  I pulled off into the parking lot and, of course, got out my camera.

Unbelievably, no one was killed, and the downed horse was up on its feet after a few minutes.


Within a minute or two of taking the above picture, the Glen Fired Dept. arrived on the scene.


Those volunteers are awesome.  I doubt that the members of any paid fire department are any more dedicated and devoted than the members of our volunteer group.

WHAT AN IDIOT! HOW DO YOU HIT A HORSE AND BUGGY? I hope the driver got some sort of punishment. Also, now that I know everyone was ok (including the horse) it's a tiny bit funny. You know you live in Amish country when...
