On Friday evening, the woman rode along a path to Oerlinghauser Straße in the Lämershagen-Gräfinghagen district. There the horse bolted for reasons that are not yet clear and the young woman lost control of the animal.

The horse was hit by a car. According to the information, the animal then ran away from the scene of the accident with serious injuries, but was caught by passers-by. A vet euthanized the horse a little later. The 33-year-old driver was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
