    Overall this was a Terrible written report,!. Bad choice of words,and very little information about the accident.

    I am so tired of the way some people drive around here talking on cell phones, always in a hurry to get nowhere running and ramming down everything in their wake. This is not the autobon! His license should get suspended, at his age he apparently still doesn’t no better, and probably never will. Pathetic.

    I agree i swear the media enjoys this, i am a horse owner and part of a rescue team and they could have a little more thought to some of us compassionate humans.

    What about the driver of the horses? How is he? How did the accident happen? Didn’t that MOTORIST know that horse-drawn vehicles have the right-of-way in almost EVERY state in the USA?

    That motorist ran into those two poor horses and now BOTH of them are dead. Their lives were indeed destroyed. They probably suffered horribly before they were “put down.” Actually they were destroyed the moment that motor vehicle plowed into them. POOR HORSES!!!

    “destroyed” terrible use of words to describe the situation. Awful accident, I continue to keep both the driver, and the man operating the farm machinery in my prayers. But terrible use of words to end this article.
