Horse Injured in Boonville Buggy Hit and Run
The Oneida County Sheriff's Office is investigating a hit-and-run that occurred between a vehicle and a horse and buggy. According to Sheriff Rob Maciol, the accident happened on Route 46 in the Town of Boonville.
Witnesses says they saw a gray Chevy Cruze traveling south. Going in the same direction on the west shoulder was the horse and buggy being driven by Cynthia Porter. It was discovered the gray Cruze left its lane striking Miss Porter's horse in the side.
Initially the Cruze left the scene of the accident before being chased down by a bystander. The driver then returned to the scene, only to flee again before police arrived.
Miss Porter was not injured in the accident, but the Sheriff's Office says the horse is being treated by a vet.
The investigation is continuing.
