Horse in­jured in col­li­sion with truck

The Delhi News-Record - - NEWS -

A horse was in­jured in a col­li­sion with a pickup truck near Teeter­ville this week.

The crash oc­curred on Wind­ham Road 6 around 6 p.m. Mon­day.

Po­lice re­port a 49-year- old Nor­folk man was west­bound in a pickup truck when the horse ran onto the road­way in front of him.

The truck was ex­ten­sively dam­aged while the horse suf­fered an in­jured rear leg.

“It is not al­ways pos­si­ble to avoid a col­li­sion with an an­i­mal, par­tic­u­larly if it sud­denly runs onto the road,” Const. Ed Sanchuk of the Nor­folk OPP said in a news re­lease.

“But driv­ers can take sen­si­ble pre­cau­tions to min­i­mize the risk of a col­li­sion. Mo­torists are be­ing urged to drive with cau­tion and within the speed limit and to be aware of their sur­round­ings at all times. Pre­dictable is pre­ventable. Make safety your pri­or­ity.”
