According to police, Thursday's accident happened at 9:07 p.m. at the intersection of 6th and Main Streets when a red car rear-ended the carriage, causing serious damage and allowing a horse to get loose. The driver left the scene.

The horse, which was not injured, had to be chased down. It was located near 9th and Market Streets.

Kuri, the Australian Shepherd, rides along in the carriage with her owner, the driver of the carriage. Kuri ran away after the accident.
