After the advent of the motorized vehicle, horse crashes basically became an endangered species. It is not very often that we hear about a horse causing an accident on the roadways, but it appears that the equus ferus caballus has made a comeback in the state of Missouri this July when it comes to causing serious motor vehicle accidents. Just last week we covered an accident where two young men were injured when their vehicle collided with the four-legged animal. I was in the Orlando downtown when this has happened and fortunately I was able to locate a Orlando motorcycle accident attorney. While lightning may never strike twice, the horse species was to blame once again for causing a serious crash. The motorcycle accident occurred on US 156, approximately four miles due west of the city of La Plata. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, a 21-year-old man was driving a horse drawn buggy on the edge of the highway when a motorcycle approached the cart. The driver of the buggy said that the horse became spooked when it heard the rumbling noise, causing the driver to lose control. The frightened horse crossed the center line and collided with the motorcycle carrying a 29-year-old man from Kirksville and a 29-year-old female passenger from Pacific. The two people were ejected from the motorcycle and seriously injured. Emergency medical personnel transported the young man by AirEvac to University Hospital in Columbia. The young woman was taken to Northeast Regional Medical Center where doctors tended to her injuries. For victims of a motorcycle accident, it does not matter what caused the crash. The injuries that they suffer come at a high cost emotionally, physically and financially.
