FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - A woman was taken to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital after she was knocked down by horses spooked when the carriage they were pulling broke.

One other person was taken to the hospital. Several women riding on the horse-drawn carriage suffered bruises.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (https://bit.ly/1vtzuxE) reports a veterinarian, Dr. Dee Thornell, was giving free carriage rides Sunday afternoon at Raven Landing Senior Community Center for Father’s Day.

The back of the carriage broke off and the horses spooked. Six women passengers were thrown from their seats.

The horses sped off and knocked down the bystander. Her arm was cut and she hit her head as she fell. She was taken to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital on a backboard.

A hospital spokesman says the woman and another injured person were stable.
