A girl was impaled by the shaft of a pony cart when the animal bolted in the course of the Fourth of July parade in Templeton.
A pony pulling a cart with two folks bumped into the group of spectators, stated a report from the San Luis Obispo County sheriff’s workplace. The shaft that attaches the cart to the harness stabbed the thigh of a 61-year-old girl.
A witness instructed the Tribune that the animal — described each as a pony and a miniature horse — was spooked by a barking canine, and that the impaled girl had been holding a child when she was knocked down.
The girl was taken to a hospital; as of Wednesday morning, the sheriff’s workplace had no information of her situation.
No different accidents have been reported, and the parade was diverted to a different road whereas the girl was handled.
Templeton is a group of about 8,000 folks between Paso Robles and Atascadero.
