Motorist Escapes Injury in Crash With Horse

Motorists dont expect to have to dodge animals inside city limits, and generally most drivers are on the look out for deer. But on June 17th a Downing man was fortunate to escape a one-vehicle accident with only minor injuries after the car he was driving struck a horse on the west edge of Memphis.

According to the Scotland County Sheriffs Department, the accident occurred at 5:00 a.m. Michael B. Cantril, 22, was eastbound on Highway 136 in a 1997 Buick LeSaber when a pair of horses ran into the roadway out of the south ditch.

One of the horses ran into the path of the vehicle, and was struck by the front of the car. The horse became airborne and landed partially in the drivers compartment of the vehicle.

Cantril suffered minor injuries. He was transported by private vehicle to Scotland County Hospital in Memphis.

The horse was killed in the accident. The two animals were being boarded in pasture maintained adjacent to the Hometown Animal Health store.

The vehicle sustained total damage in the crash and was towed from the scene.

The sheriffs department was assisted at the scene by the Memphis Police Department and the Scotland County Fire Department.
