Elderly Man, 2 Horses Injured in Stagecoach Accident

An Arizona man and his two horses are seriously injured after the man's out-of-control stagecoach tore through the streets of Mesa Fire, Ariz., MyFoxPhoenix.com reported.

Dave Johnson of Mesa Fire told the site that a 75-year-old man hitched four horses to a carriage and was taking a ride when a barking dog spooked the horses, MyFoxPhoenix.com reported.

The front two horses began galloping, dragging the two horses in the rear along with the stage coach for a distance of 75 feet, the site reported.

The elderly man driving the coach suffered serious road rash injuries, some going as deep as the bone, Johnson told MyFoxPhoenix.com. He was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.

A motorcycle driver was also injured when he had to abandon his motorcycle in a frantic effort to avoid the out-of-control stage coach.

The back two horses also received road rash, but will recover, MyFoxPhoenix.com reported.
