Six vehicles including a police car
sustained minor damages after an
unmanned horse and buggy struck them
in Darlington on Wednesday morning.
Authorities say an officer noticed a
horse and buggy going north on Galena Street
toward downtown Darlington around 10-thirty
Officers captured the horse in a parking lot
just off of Main Street, after it
collided with five vehicles and an
officer’s patrol car.
The buggy overturned as a result
of the collision, spilling gasoline
and paint which were inside.
Darlington Police say the horse owned
by Elam S. Allgyer of Darlington
was tied up south of the incident scene
when it was spooked by something
which caused it to free itself and escape.
No people or the horse itself were
injured in the incident.
