A rider is injured and horse killed in car accident

A woman has been injured and her horse killed in a car accident.

The rider was thrown off her mount when a car collided into the back of the horse after a failed attempt to safely overtake.

The woman had been wearing protective clothing when the accident took place in November 2010, which prevented any major personal injuries. Unfortunately, the horse had to be put down due to the severity of injures it sustained.

The driver did not stop at the scene of the accident but instead carried on driving with a broken windscreen. He later told his neighbour the damage was caused by a collision with a tree.

Central Devon Magistrates Court fined the man for driving without due care and attention and for not stopping at the scene of the accident.

The driver's insurance company is currently dealing with the equestrian accident compensation claim for the rider involved in the car accident.
