No he wasn't Dave. He told the Police that he'd sounded his horn 'to warn her he was behind' and it 'wasn't his fault the horse bolted'. I suppose he could have been correct, but no-one in the village was okay with his statement.
The Air Ambulance were very swift to attend and landed beside the Village Hall (big yellow helicopter). We all made a donation later - most of the Village Bingos round here donate to it anyway.
The poor lady (Sheila) was so active for her age, like most of the elderly in the sticks. But now she's very depressed and seems to have given up. Very very sad.
The horse galloped back to the stable dragging the cart on its side behind him. He wasn't injured.
