On Thursday, a horse and buggy were pulled out of a canal in east Mesa.
SCOTTSDALE, AZ (CBS5) -
Three people were hurt when a horse-drawn carriage they were riding in flipped over in the Old Town area of Scottsdale, police said.
The accident happened at about 1 p.m. when an apparent mechanical problem caused the carriage to hit a sign at the corner of First Street and Brown, said Scottsdale police spokesman Officer Dave Pubins.
The carriage flipped onto its side, Pubins said.
A man driving the carriage was not hurt but his three passengers, all women, were taken to the hospital. They are expected to be OK.
The intersection was closed for about an hour.
No citations will be issued, Pubins said.
This was the second accident in the Valley involving a horse and carriage in the past week.
On Thursday, rescue personnel were called to pull a horse and carriage out of a canal in Mesa.
The horse had apparently veered too close to the edge of the canal to avoid a car parked alongside the waterway and slipped into the canal in the 2000 block of North Greenfield Road.
The driver of the carriage was able to jump from the carriage before it hit the water.
Crews disconnected the horse from the carriage and guided it through the 4-foot high water to an area where the animal could be walked up and out.
