      Surveillance Video shows runaway horse in downtown Savannah

      A carriage horse took off through downtown Savannah plowing into parked cars and scaring pedestrians.

      WJAR's sister station WSAV has obtained a copy of the surveillance video from downtown Savannah that shows a spooked horse running through the streets.

      WSAV also has a copy of the traffic heard on the police scanner during the incident.

      A carriage horse took off through downtown Savannah plowing into parked cars and scaring pedestrians.

      The horse took off from the west side of Ellis Square, running down Congress Street, still pulling the carriage.

      A surreal scene unveiled downtown ending with a horse in an alley, its driver at a local hospital.

      The horse apparently got "spooked" by something and started running taking the driver and five passengers along for the wild ride.

      The driver of the carriage was taken to a local hospital with what appeared to be broken ankles.

      The five passengers, including three children, did have to jump from the carriage but they suffered only scrapes and bruises.

      The horse escaped unhurt.
