In a bizarre and unfortunate accident, a horse rammed into a car, breaking the windshield and injuring itself in Jaipur on Monday.
According to passersby, the horse lost its control and broke into the windshield of a car near Jaipur Club in Civil Lines.
The accident happened around 1.30pm on Sunday when the city was reeling under searing heat, with the mercury well over 42 degrees Celsius. Police officials said it was likely that the horse went berserk because of the heat and broke its harness.
The horse got stuck inside the car and the accident resulted in injuries for the animal as well as the Pankaj Joshi, owner of the vehicle.
“I was just started my car in Civil Lines area when I heard the sound of breaking of glass and at a very next second, I was stuck inside my car with a horse on the seat next to me,” said Joshi.
The horse remained stuck for at least 10 minutes before people rescued the horse and the driver. Locals were soon joined by officials from the forest department. The photos and videos of the accident that showed a horse stuck in the car and being pulled out of the vehicle were circulated on the social media. Both have sustained minor injuries.
