Collision between horse cart and car caught on camera

A collision between a horse cart and car was caught on camera this afternoon (Friday, July 24).

The footage was taken close to the Seagoe Hotel around 3pm and shows the moment the cart and a car came into contact and the motorist’s quick manoeuvre in an effort to stop the cart travelling on. The cart had been part of what was described as a ‘convoy’.

According to a witness: “The convoy came down the Garvaghy Road then turned towards the hospital, seemed to be young children mainly riding but i noticed a few men who were riding and drinking beer, at the same time these two guys hit a man’s car so I started to record then I captured a young girl hitting another car.

“The driver then drove in front of the horse and got out and tried to stop the girl from riding away.”
